Asda reveals item-level RFID pilot

By Retail Technology | Thursday January 16 2014

One of the UK's largest supermarkets selects RFID-based inventory visibility application to pilot at store level with its own-brand fashion clothing range

Asda this week selected retail performance and security systems provider Tyco Retail Solutions to partner with it on an item-level inventory visibility and accuracy project at store level for its George apparel business. 

Tyco’s TrueVUE Inventory Visibility application will enable Asda to use radio frequency identification (RFID) cycle counting in support of its business. In addition to its inventory application and systems, Tyco Retail Solutions will provide Asda with professional services to manage the project.

Improving stock availability

“Our customers trust us to be ‘always available’ and expect their size option to be instore or online when they want it,” stated David Mills, head of strategic availability projects for Asda. “With Tyco’s RFID-based application, we hope to enhance our inventory accuracy and stock availability in-store.”
 
“We recognise the challenge retailers face in ensuring accurate inventory to satisfy shopper demand,” added Nancy Chisholm, Tyco Retail Solutions vice president and general manager. 

“We are excited to be chosen as the partner for this pilot program and look forward to applying Tyco’s years of retail leadership to help Asda harness the power of RFID to improve store performance, enhance shopper experience and support an omnichannel strategy.”
