Sato deploys RFID system at fashion retailer Decks

Sato, a global provider of Auto-ID solutions that empower workforces and streamline operations, has deployed an RFID inventory and stock-taking system at Decks, one of the leading fashion retailers and apparel suppliers in Singapore.

Before implementing the RFID system, Decks spent up to 600 worker-hours for its annual stock-taking with 88 per cent accuracy. To help Decks achieve greater efficiency and accuracy, Sato recommended Decks adopt an RFID inventory system which involved tagging apparel with RFID labels, scanning incoming and outgoing items through an RFID enclosure making stock-taking a breeze with the sweep of a mobile RFID scanner. With the new system, Decks is now able to complete its annual stock-taking in five worker-hours with 99.8 per cent accuracy, according to a press release.

Kelvyn Chee, the managing director of Decks Pte. Ltd. said, “With the retail industry growing more competitive and the rise of ecommerce and mcommerce changing the way consumers shop, retailers have to act fast to keep up and stay ahead in the game. Besides stock-taking advantages, the new RFID system Sato provided also helps us achieve greater inventory data accuracy enabling us to ensure stock availability and customer satisfaction.”

Akihiro Ito, general manager of Sato Asia Pacific said, “We are honoured that Decks chose us to lead this important project and pleased to hear that their investment in RFID has not only improved their business outcomes but also allowed their staff to focus on more meaningful tasks. We look forward to continue working with Decks in their pursuit to achieve continuous improvement through other retail solutions such as Anti-Theft and Self-Checkout and also help other players in this industry facing similar issues rise to the challenge as well.” (GK)
