Giant Fashion Retailer Zara Adds RFID Based Inventory Intelligence
Tyco Retail Solutions announced that Inditex Group, owner of some of the largest fashion retail brands including Zara, Pull and Bear, Bershka, Massimo Dutti, Stradivarius, and Oysho, has awarded Tyco a chain-wide contract for RFID-based inventory intelligence. The Tyco solution is currently deployed in 700 Zara stores across the globe in 22 countries.
“Implementation of this next-generation technology is the one of the most significant changes ever in how the Group’s stores operate,” said Inditex President Pablo Isla.
Inditex is utilizing Tyco’s Sensormatic dual technology RFID/Acousto-Magnetic (RFID/AM) hard tags and detachers at the point-of-sale. Tyco is also managing Inditex’s tag recirculation program through a cost-effective and environmentally sound approach that allows re-use of RFID/AM tags.
