Scotch & Soda tries on RFID
Fashion retailer Scotch & Soda will be using RFID tags for greater inventory visibility and product availability
Scotch & Soda customers will benefit from a much stronger chance of finding and purchasing the right trousers, skirt, jacket, or shirt with a new three-year partnership with leading RFID solutions provider Checkpoint Systems.
Checkpoint will tag, on average, 10 million Scotch & Soda garments with the latest generation of RFID labels per year, providing it with improved inventory accuracy across its estate. By utilising this technology, the retailer will gain full, real-time visibility of its entire stock holding, ensuring its omnichannel services, including 'click & collect', are optimised.
Scotch & Soda, which operates 166 stores in more than 70 countries, has been using Checkpoint Systems' clothing labels for more than 10 years. Now the fashion brand is going a step further in its collaboration by incorporating the latest generation of RFID labels - featuring the high performing Njord label with the Impinj M750 Chip - onto all its merchandise worldwide.
Rik Kok, global director of procurement and real estate, Scotch & Soda said: "We can now provide every consumer with the garment he or she wants through his or her most preferred sales channel."
