NEW YORK - January 13, 2023 - (Newswire.com)

SimplyRFID's Wave 3.3.9 releases on January 20, 2023 and can be previewed at the NRF Big Show this week (Jan. 15-17) at booth #4246 in the Javits Center, NY. The most significant new Wave feature is direct data exchange with Shopify.

Quarterly inventories are obsolete. Today's inventories are weekly - even daily - and take minutes with SimplyRFiD's Wave RAIN RFID system.

Before RFID, the only choice was manual barcode counts that took a team hours and yet only 75-85% accurate (Source: Gartner Contemporary Retail Report, November 2021). Still, when RFID became viable around 2008, the value of RFID wasn't there because the concept of how to use a global accurate inventory didn't exist. As omnichannel and e-commerce became a driving requirement for retailers, connecting inventory at the store to the web changed the value proposition for RFID. 

After a years of study at retailers, SimplyRFiD developed the business processes and workflows to help retailers get up and running with minimal effort and high confidence of a successful, fast rollout and built it into their Wave App.

How RFID works for Inventory with Shopify:

  • Sync Shopify product tables to SimplyRFiD's Wave

Wave will connect to Shopify and pull the product table in one-click.

Place an RFID tag on each item and assign a product name by scanning the UPC. Or, create SGTIN encoded RFID at manufacturing time - the ultimate solution.

  • Take Inventory with Wave and Sync, Weekly

SimplyRFiD will be at the NRF Big Show in booth #4246 from Jan. 15-17, 2023. On hand to discuss how SimplyRFID can help retailers improve their business processes with RFID will be Carl Brown, President, Eric Richmond, Vice President of Delivery, and Will Montalbo, Vice President of Marketing.

Wave works for retailers from one store to 1,000.

The SimplyRFiD Wave App runs on Apple iOS 16 and newer and connects with the most powerful retail RFID scanner, the CSL CS108 S. Focusing on the right hardware combination and perfecting it leads to a powerful and reliable inventory control system. 

Single-store Wave RFID inventory systems are less than $3,000 with hardware, software and support. Per tag RFID costs $0.15 for 10,000 and less than $0.04 in for 500,000+.

lululemon Partners With Nedap to Advance RFID Technology Across Stores Globally

Nedap iD Cloud will now enhance lululemon's current capabilities to engage customers in new and compelling ways, meeting them where, when, and how they want to shop.

Groenlo, the Netherlands - January 12, 2023 - (Newswire.com)

Nedap (AMS:NEDAP), the global leader in RFID solutions, has been selected by lululemon (NASDAQ: LULU) as their new provider for the deployment of Nedap iD Cloud, which will enhance its omni-guest experience across its 600+ stores globally by optimizing product availability.

lululemon athletica inc. has partnered with Nedap as they continue to invest in a strong omni-guest experience across the globe. As stores are a significant point of connection and community for lululemon's guests, Nedap's iD Cloud platform is a crucial pillar to unlock real-time inventory data so that stores have the right product assortment available on their floors, creating a seamless experience across brick-and-mortar through digital engagement.

"Our guests are at the center of everything that we do, and we are hyper-focused on creating strong guest connections through seamless store and online experiences," said Carl Barker, Vice President, Global Omni Programs at lululemon. "With Nedap's iD Cloud solution, we can leverage real-time, accurate data to enable our in-store educators to spend even more time engaging and connecting with our guests. Having a fully mobile cloud solution in our stores greatly contributes to this experience. Online, RFID continues to elevate our digital experience, offering accurate real-time store inventory visibility and powering key fulfillment experiences such as buy online, pickup in store (BOPIS)."

In August 2022, lululemon began its deployment of iD Cloud to its fleet of North American stores. The project was completed in September when all North American stores became live on iD Cloud. lululemon will continue to scale up the RFID-based inventory management platform to Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Asia Pacific region in early 2023, streamlining growth in new markets.

Ailen Bilharz, Director of iD Cloud Platform North America at Nedap, comments: "Retail is habitually met with an ever-evolving environment and lululemon thrives from a position of strength by staying true to their vision and values on serving their guests and alike across the globe. As highly advanced RFID users, lululemon's adoption of the iD Cloud platform commences the next phase in their RFID journey. With Nedap's scalable real-time solution, lululemon will continue to meet demand and supply across all channels while elevating the digital and physical guest experience."

LOS ANGELES - January 11, 2023 - (Newswire.com)

Ricardo London (www.ricardolondon.com), the e-commerce streetwear apparel company based in Los Angeles, California, has made the declaration to donate five percent of its profits divided amongst all 107 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) throughout the United States in hopes of inspiring other black-owned brands, no matter the industry, to follow suit. The company made the conscious decision to contribute a percentage of its profits during the lifespan of Ricardo London's professional operations, etching in a socially conscious commitment.

It is no secret that most HBCUs are underfunded, but it is possible for small Black-owned businesses across all sectors to restructure their company's financial DNA to ease Black collegiate monetary burdens, and being a multi-million-dollar organization should not be the prerequisite for any company to do so, which is why the small team behind the young brand Ricardo London is implementing its giveback initiative immediately, and it will remain a mainstay as long as the e-commerce startup remains progressive in the streetwear market. 

When asked what inspired the community initiative to donate a percentage of its company's future revenues to HBCUs, Antonio Ricardo responded, "It was during Deion Sanders' 'Club Shay Shay' interview with Shannon Sharpe that Sanders asked what his distractors were doing on a regular basis to contribute to filling the funding holes that many Black colleges endure. It was in that moment that we decided to make giving to HBCUs on a quarterly basis part of Ricardo London's outreach." 

Ricardo London (www.ricardolondon.com) is an all-inclusive streetwear brand, but for its latest release, the "Shadow Alumnus Capsule Part 1", they decided to focus the capsule primarily on Black men and women as a way of sending a unified message of respect, loyalty, and commitment to Black culture. "Being that we are a Black-owned company, we felt the need to put our culture first and center, but all streetwear enthusiasts should expect future releases to encompass talent from all different walks of life," Antonio Ricardo stated. 

About Ricardo London

Ricardo London (www.ricardolondon.com) is an e-commerce streetwear brand that is focused on quality-crafted, limited-edition garments and has driven community initiatives far beyond the stylish apparel it produces.

Wave RFID produces ROI in retail stores

DALLAS - January 5, 2023 - (Newswire.com)

Before RFID, the only choice was manual barcode counts that took hours or days and were only 75-85% accurate. Still, when RFID became viable around 2008, the value of RFID wasn't there because the concept of a global accurate, available inventory didn't exist. As omnichannel and e-commerce became a driving requirement for retailers, connecting inventory at the store to the web changed the value proposition for RFID.

Quarterly inventories are now obsolete. Today's inventories are weekly - even daily - and take minutes with SimplyRFiD's Wave RAIN RFID system.

After a year of study at retailers, SimplyRFiD found several areas that make the value proposition even more compelling. SimplyRFiD developed the business processes and workflows to help retailers get up and running with minimal effort and with high confidence of a successful, fast rollout.

Key ROI findings when implementing the SimplyRFiD Wave RFID System for inventory:

  • Increased Sales: 4% increase in sales due to product availability or replacement from nearby locations.
  • Labor Reduction: 95% less labor required for RFID inventory over manual.
  • Loss Reduction: Switching to fast, accurate weekly inventories reduced loss by 90% due to immediate identification and correction of diversion / leakage / misshipments.

SimplyRFiD will be at the NRF Big Show in booth #4246 from Jan. 15-17, 2023. On hand to discuss how SimplyRFiD can help retailers improve their business with RFID will be Carl Brown, President, Eric Richmond, Vice President of Delivery; and Will Montalbo, Vice President of Marketing.

Not sure if you need RFID for your inventory?

Wave RFID works for retailers from one store to 1,000. Even without omnichannel selling, the ability to locate items with RFID and get control of store inventory is a boon for small retailers and has the majority of the value. Complete single-store Wave RFID inventory systems well-equipped are less than $3,000 with hardware, software and support. Per tag RFID costs run $0.10-0.15 in small volumes and less than $0.04 in mid-volume.

She currently runs Simone Jardim Pickleball Camps, a multi-day experience in Naples, Florida, for all pickleball skill levels. Students can get direct instruction from Jardim and her pro team.
