Gerry Weber deploys Nordic ID's PL3000 Cross Dipoles
Mar '10
Gerry Weber International AG, a fashion and lifestyle company, recently chose Nordic ID as their handheld RFID supplier. The international, chain-wide RFID project stipulated high mobility requirements, which Nordic ID's PL3000 UHF RFID Cross Dipole computers fulfill. The delivery of the handheld devices will be in June 2010 to the “Houses of Gerry Weber” in Germany and throughout Europe.

The RFID handhelds will be most heavily used in goods receiving and inventory management at about 150 stores. „Nowadays it takes us about two days to complete the inventory on a 200-square-foot retail space,” says Christian von Grone, CIO at Gerry Weber. “After the rollout, this process will take only about ten minutes“.

Nordic ID handsets were chosen after a meticulous selection process, including extensive testing of different devices. The fact that the PL3000 Cross Dipole is able to read tags from up to four feet away, even through closed boxes, was the deciding factor in its choice. For Gerry Weber, this is especially important when tagged goods, in individual boxes, are transported in bulk on pallets.

But the PL3000's reading ability should come as no surprise, considering that the European EPC Competence Center (EECC)'s recent testing of the device produced the best value ever measured in an EECC test procedure for receiver sensitivity. Because of the innovative cross-polarizing antenna developed by Nordic ID, the device is capable of reading tags both horizontally and vertically. For the Gerry Weber project this was one of the factors to choose Nordic ID PL3000 Cross Dipoles, since in the reading process in rapid succession, the orientation of the RFID tags are negligible and this speeds up their processes significantly.

The 800-gram Nordic ID Cross Dipole UHF devices come with a battery charge of up to 20 hours, a robust, ergonomic design and can easily be used in a dark environment thanks to function-key lighting.

Gerry Weber, an international fashion and lifestyle company, is listed on the Frankfurt exchange. With internationally recognized brands, Gerry Weber's outlets can be found all over the world. Gerry Weber International AG is a clothing manufacturer that introduced RFID technology in order to optimize its logistics and retail processes. RFID will also improve cost savings through loss prevention, efficiency and process transparency.
