Checkpoint Systems announced the deployment of a large-scale RFID program to improve merchandise availability and operational efficiency at LPP
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Checkpoint Systems today announced here at NRF 2019 that it is expanding its relationship with Polish fashion retail group LPP, with the deployment of a large-scale Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) program to improve merchandise availability, operational efficiency and the consumer experience. The program will be deployed across LPP’s entire supply chain from manufacturing through LPP’s e-commerce platform and to over 1,700 outlets spanning 23 countries.
With more than 200 million items sold each year, LPP has created the biggest apparel manufacturing/retail company in Central and Eastern Europe. The socially responsible Polish family company was looking for a solution that would improve operational efficiency across its estate, while enhancing inventory visibility for its five high fashion retail brands: Reserved, Cropp, House, Mohito and Sinsay.
Checkpoint already supplies Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) technology to LPP and the new RFID @Source program will enable items to arrive in-store, shelf-ready, reducing the time store employees spend checking deliveries and enhancing inventory accuracy. It demonstrates Checkpoint’s ability to offer both EAS and RFID technology simultaneously to meet the needs of the Polish retailer.
Introducing RFID technology is also expected to increase profitability through improved efficiencies, with early estimates indicating a 3 percent sales uplift. It will also improve the identification of single items in the supply chain, while also transforming product visibility and availability in store. The technology also enables LPP to easily pin-point top-sellers and key trends in individual outlets, meaning it will be able to tailor its inventory to individual stores and their customer base more accurately.
