EuroCIS 2016: Nedap showcases stock availability solutions

The solutions enable retailers to permanently lower their shrinkage levels and significantly improve their on-shelf merchandise availability.

Groenlo, The Netherlands – February 9, 2016

At the upcoming EuroCIS trade show in Düsseldorf, from 23 - 25 February 2016, Nedap presents stock availability solutions for the global retail sector. The key solutions presented by Nedap (booth 10A02) are the iSense hardware portfolio and the iD Cloud software suite.

These solutions enable retailers to permanently lower their shrinkage levels and significantly improve their on-shelf merchandise availability.

iSense : Concealed EAS systems & effective alarm management

Nedap’s iSense portfolio includes RF/ RFID antennas and smart readers for electronic article surveillance (EAS) and in-store merchandise tracking. At EuroCIS, Nedap will showcase its hybrid (RF/ RFID) pedestals and concealed solutions – a RAIN RFID overhead reader and a door-mounted RF antenna. These solutions blend seamlessly into the store design, offer a better customer experience, and enable a larger selling space in the highly frequented entrance area.

To support the store staff with their alarm management, Nedap presents plug & play IP-integrations with pagers and the cameras and video management software from Axis Communications. With the pager integration, staff members instantly receive a discrete signal in case of an EAS or metal detection alarm while the Axis integration makes it possible to record all EAS events in the video management software. The Axis Camera Application for iSense can also raise alarms and trigger live views. This enables time savings and a more effective shrink reduction.

iD Cloud : Accurate stock data & omnichannel enablement

The iD Cloud software suite is a Software as a Service solution specifically developed for retail applications, giving retailers the quickest route to implement RFID and improve their in-store stock accuracy to over 98%. iD Cloud translates the collected data from RAIN RFID readers in the stores into comprehensive lists that highlight the out-of-stocks and overstocks. Thereby, the causes of stock differences, through losses or administrative errors, can be identified and dealt with more quickly.

A better understanding of the actual on-shelf availability enables retailers to finally do perfect replenishment which proves to significantly increase sales. The detailed insights into the exact location of each item also make it possible to connect the stock of the physical stores with the retailer’s online platforms. This is the basis to successfully introduce omnichannel concepts like Click & Collect (BOPIS) or buy online & return in-store (BORIS) without adding complexity or a separate supply chain.
