Item-Level RFID ROI a Shoe-in for Florida Retailer
Giants like Wal-Mart aren’t the only retailers using item-level RFID to improve inventory accuracy and reduce inventory-related labor costs. An article in RFIDJournal.com explains how “Florida shoe retailer Peltz Shoes has saved approximately 1,500 man-hours in the past year by applying a passive RFID tag to every box containing a pair of shoes at each of its four stores.”
Just so happens the store is using RFID printers from Zebra Technologies to encode the RFID labels and print each with a price, description and bar code.
Check out the article.
What do you think—do you foresee your own stores implementing item-level RFID anytime soon? Do you think you could achieve the level of return on investment Peltz Shoes has?
