Physical Inventory Counts & RFID for Department Stores & Mass Merchandisers

In terms of pure dollars, the largest retailers have the most to lose when it comes to out of stocks. They also have the biggest challenge.

With operational excellence the main remaining frontier for lowering costs and enhancing sales, many of the world’s largest retailers are taking advantage of fast, accurate physical inventory counts from RGIS, as well as retail and supply chain solutions backed by our decades of retail inventory experience.

RFID Inventory Tracking

Twenty of the top 30 retailers in the U.S. are using RFID, and fashion retail and footwear are leading the way.

RGIS and our global partner Checkpoint install and implement RFID tagging and infrastructure that provides unrivalled visibility that reduces shrink and out-of-stocks and gives our customers inventory at the speed of light.


Fashion-minded people are also digital shoppers. RFID makes omnichannel retailing possible by delivering integrated, real-time inventory visibility and management, helping to ensure product availability for customers whether they’re in-store or online.

RFID inventory tracking gives retailers additional benefits including:

·          making mobile checkout possible

·          enhancing loss prevention

·          providing merchandising insight to get the most out of every square foot

RGIS makes it easy and low-risk for retailers to adopt full in-store coverage by testing a store first to see the benefits before expanding RFID across stores and deeper into the supply chain.
