Kookai saves time with RFID

By Retail Technology | Friday December 10 2021 | UPDATED 10.12.21

Global fashion retailer Kookai has cut inventory counts from a few days to 30 minutes as a result of implementing RFID

The project is at the heart of the Kookai omnichannel strategy where, ultimately, all clothing and stores will be equipped with RFID.

This will enable it to precisely track all items within its supply chain, speed up check out times, enable online orders to be fulfilled from local stores and provide consumers with extra information about the products they enjoy via new interactive experiences.

Kookai has tagged all the garments it manufactures with an integrated RFID Printed Fabric Label (PFL) from Avery Dennison which caters for multiple languages.

In partnership with Sensormatic Solutions TrueVue Cloud platform, Avery Dennison has been able to offer an RFID solution that is able to capture and manage the item level data, enabling the brand to track the inventory process from production to quality control and then to finished goods.

Productivity

This has delivered dramatic productivity improvements. At its Fiji factory,  data indicates that 30,000 items can be counted in just 30 minutes – a process which used to take a few days.

Kookai is also experiencing benefits in store by reducing its out-of-stocks and gaining visibility into inventory levels so that re-stocks can be increased ahead of time for fast selling items.

Amelia Adey, loss prevention and compliance manager at Kookai Australia, said: “Stock-takes can be done daily now instead of on a twice yearly basis which enables us to provide accurate stock updates to our customers in real time.”
