Checkpoint Systems has come out with a major release of the IoT software platform, HALO, which comes with omni-channel and task management functionality. HALO now supports in-store fulfilment of omni-channel orders, that is ‘buy online, pick up in store’ and ship-from-store. Checkpoint Systems is a provider for loss prevention and merchandise visibility.

Using RFID and accurate inventory data, HALO helps distributing the orders among stores based on availability. The HALO mobile app shows store staff the order information, helps scheduling the fulfilment, locating the items and preparing for pickup or shipment. The new functionality will increase in-store productivity, raising the Units Per Hour fulfilled, and boost sales together with customer satisfaction, according to Checkpoint.

HALO is a Software-as-a-Service platform that is part of Checkpoint’s RFID solution for retail. HALO tracks every tagged piece of merchandise across a retailer’s supply chain by collecting data from RFID readers in the stores and distribution centres. The platform synchronises with enterprise resource planning (ERP) and warehouse management system (WMS) software, driving inventory accuracy, on-shelf availability and efficiency across the supply chain. Apart from omni-channel order fulfilment, task scheduling and locating items, store associates use HALO for cycle counts, receiving goods, replenishing shelves and display compliance.

“Today, to pack an order, the store associate typically uses a printout from the ERP system to look for products in the store. Some items might be already sold, some misplaced. The associate will lose time looking for them and will sometimes have to reject the order. HALO uses near real-time inventory data and supports the associate with an easy to use app throughout the in-store fulfilment process, making it fast and efficient,” Phil Fisher, product manager for HALO said.

“We continuously invest in logistics and IT to streamline the consumer-oriented omni-channel model. With HALO’s new in-store fulfilment functionality, we expect to further optimise operations through inventory accuracy, creating a new level of customer satisfaction,” Daniel Muñoz, operations director of Desigual, the Spanish-headquartered international fashion brand said.
