ViziT item visibility solutions for apparel retailers
Jan '12
SML Group Ltd, a global brand identification solutions provider that supplies tags and labels to the retail apparel industry, announced the launch of its new RFID solutions, which will carry the brand name of ViziT.

ViziT item visibility solutions provides for a full range of RFID/EAS enabled paper and woven labels, plus tickets and stickers that can be attached to apparel hanging and stacked items. ViziT offers real time item visibility designed to aid a retail store as it strives to provide its customers with an improved product selection and in-store experience.

Each label will carry its own unique GS1 EPC serial number, which may be attached to garments and items, which can then be tracked by means of the SML ViziT IT cloud based data management software. ViziT also provides for semi automated inventory control and offers improved Loss Prevention by triggering alarms and providing item identification at the store exit.

In addition to the core ViziT solutions SML is partnering with TAGSYS and Nedap Retail to offer a complete 'one stop shop' for all RFID hardware and systems solutions which are required to gather and manage the data throughout the retail store and logistics operations.

"SML has noted the recent statements from companies such as JC Penney, Macy's, Walmart and Gerry Weber, who all state that they intend to expand or introduce RFID item tracking to their store operations." says Philip Calderbank, SML VP Global RFID.

"As one of the world's premier producers of garment labels, we felt it was time to introduce RFID into the SML product range. ViziT provides complete item level visibility by offering a full selection of RFID enabled labels and stickers. However in our opinion the management of the serial numbers is of equal importance to the overall success of any RFID system. So we decided to develop a total data management solution. Through this ViziT IT Cloud, we offer a simple solution for encoding and printing the labels in our global Service Bureau's.

ViziT IT also enables both garment vendors and retail store operations to maintain visibility of newly tagged items, through an easy to use web based system. Finally we decided to partner with TAGSYS and Nedap Retail. Through these alliances we offer a complete and global one stop shop of RFID labels, EPC serial encoding, cloud based data management, plus RFID hand held and fixed readers, in-store middleware, and combination RFID/EAS readers for item loss prevention."

"We are pleased to be able to offer our total RFID solutions to SML Group's retail and apparel customers," says Alain Fanet, CEO of TAGSYS. "This partnership with SML is further recognition of our commitment to provide brands and retailers with complete, easy to deploy RFID systems over the Cloud that provide a rapid return on investment at a minimal cost to end users. "
