Trimble-Truecount to deliver ThingMagic RFID Solutions

Trimble announced that it partnered with Truecount Corporation, an innovator in RFID software solutions for the retail industry. Truecount will leverage ThingMagic enterprise-grade RFID readers to deliver best-in-class item-level RFID platforms for retailers and their end-to-end supply chains.

According to Truecount CEO Zander Livingston, one of the leading experts in RFID implementation and integration for the retail industry, without RFID, most retail companies lack reliable information about inventory and the activities relating to the shipping and receiving of items for their stores. They cannot track with precision when or where an item has been received, where it currently resides in the store or if and when it reached its final destination.

In fact, statistics from the RFID Research Center at the University of Arkansas place the current inventory accuracy rate for apparel stores in the U.S. at roughly 65 percent. By implementing item-level RFID, Livingston believes retailers can achieve up-to-the-minute inventory visibility that is approximately 99 plus percent precise.

"Increasing the degree of accuracy to the 99 plus percent level can be a huge competitive advantage for retailers," said Livingston. "Truecount's item-level RFID platform combined with ThingMagic advanced reader technology can streamline and accelerate inventory and management processes."

"ThingMagic solutions stand out as a leader in RFID. The innovative technology excels in tag reading speed, ease of integration and performance across many diverse operating conditions," continued Livingston. "Leveraging ThingMagic solutions can enable rapid deployment of RFID and a quicker path to ROI for our retail customers."

Truecount and ThingMagic solutions focus on delivering the highest return-on-investment for retail customers by utilizing the most advanced RFID technology. Implementing Truecount's leading-edge software platform, one of the first designed specifically for retailers, in combination with ThingMagic advanced readers can give retailers unprecedented control over inventory and related work-flows. The powerful capabilities provided through the relationship are designed to reduce the costs and complexities of tracking assets throughout the supply chain.

"Truecount's retail software platform addresses customers' most critical inventory-related challenges and delivers RFID-driven data that can be acted on with confidence," said Tom Grant, general manager of Trimble's ThingMagic Division.

"ThingMagic embedded and finished RFID readers provide unique and powerful options for retail solution providers like Truecount to develop offerings that can streamline operations and enhance the shopping experience. RFID is poised to drive significant business process improvements throughout the retail market where item-level visibility is critical, and we're excited about the new levels of efficiency and opportunity this relationship can deliver."
