Tagsys introduces Fashion Item Tracking System
Apr '11
TAGSYS, the leading provider of item-level RFID infrastructure, today announced the introduction of FiTS (Fashion Item Tracking System), its commercial off-the-shelf, end-to-end supply chain system for the apparel and fashion marketplaces.

Leveraging RFID technology to provide visibility from manufacturing, through the distribution center, and to the retail floor, the new system includes RFID technologies, materials, software and consulting services to satisfy the complete supply chain process.

The fashion/apparel industry struggles with supply chain challenges that can result in high costs and lost sales due to a lack of accurate inventory information, and a lack of automation and reliability in shipping and receiving operations. Without reliable and controllable processes, the time to process each item increases, resulting in higher distribution costs. In the store, manual receipt processes bog down the sales staff, while the lack of visibility makes it difficult to manage inventory and control shrink.

FiTS solves these problems by providing real-time visibility and automated, item-level inventory tracking. Existing TAGSYS fashion customers have realized an average 50% productivity improvement in the distribution center, 98% inventory accuracy, and a 20% reduction in processing costs per item, while improving sales by 7%.

"TAGSYS has listened to the fashion market for the past four years, and designed the FiTS system to improve the brand equity of our fashion customers," said TAGSYS CEO, Alain Fanet. "Our company has long history of developing total systems that are tailored to the unique needs of vertical markets. With FiTS, our customers receive a flexible, scalable solution that meets all of their tracking and visibility needs, all from a single source."

As the first worldwide, commercial RFID system for the fashion industry, FiTS offers customers a unique, centralized view of the entire supply chain by combining proven RFID technology and services:

• Complete Technology Platform: FiTS provides customers with reliable, industry-standard RFID tags, labels, readers, and software.
• Unique, Centralized Dashboard: The FiTS dashboard allows customers to monitor supply chain processes and RFID performance in order to identify chokepoints and improve logistics, receipt, purchasing, and shrink management processes anywhere in the world.
• Innovative, Flexible Deployment Model: Customers can buy or lease the FiTS system. Because FiTS is modular and scalable, the system can grow with your business, and easily be reconfigured without additional technology investments. This subscription-based model allows customers to accelerate their ROI while reducing financial risk.
• Performance Guarantee: TAGSYS will design and install a quality RFID system that is reliable, fully integrated and complete. Further, TAGSYS can guarantee performance levels and provide proactive maintenance via its TAGSYS Total Managed Services (TMS) offering.
