Radio frequency identification (RFID) was reportedly developed in the 1940s as an espionage tool in WWII. It has since been used to track everything from automobile parts to pharmaceuticals and even livestock.The retail world began to adopt the technology in the 1990s. Although RFID in retail originally found its place in warehouse environments and supply chain security, it has since been introduced as an alternative to standard electronic article surveillance (EAS) as a method to manage inventory accuracy in store.Now that the dynamic of retail has shifted to encompass online shopping and omni-channel retailing, inventory tracking has become more challenging. Nevertheless, it remains a top priority for retailers. The May-June 2016 issue of LP Magazine explores the journey to RFID program adoption in retail enterprises in “RFID in Retail,” by Lee Pernice, LPC. From the article:- Sponsor – “A 2014 survey of 120 major retailers polled by Chain Link Research found improved inventory accuracy, which translated into reduced out-of-stock and better on-floor availability of merchandise, was the number one reason for implementing an RFID program.According to Checkpoint’s Su Doyle, several of the company’s apparel retail and department store customers have increased on-shelf availability by 20 percent with RFID and experienced a 10 to 15 percent sales uplift for RFID-tagged merchandise. As it relates to omni-channel fulfillment, its customers have reportedly been able to double the fulfillment speed with near-perfect order accuracy when using RFID-enabled process automation.”RFID can also streamline the location of missing inventory and accelerate the cycle counting process.

Fortune’s face, Box Office queen and Bollywood’s leading lady on falling in love with Spain’s zest for life, watching a live soccer match in Manchester, and more…1. Favourite cityI took a holiday to Marbella, Spain, and I simply fell in love with it. It is a magical place. My second time there was during the shooting of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. I have visited and experienced some of the most beautiful places on earth in Spain. The architecture one gets to see in almost every city, especially Valencia, is amazing. And I love the Spanish people-their energy and vibe is unmatched. It’s not one of those countries where you feel people are walking down the streets, minding their own business. There is a certain kind of unity and I find that very similar to India.2. A memorable sporting event I first visited Manchester as the brand ambassador of Etihad Airways. Manchester is a great city and what they’ve done with the Etihad Stadium is spectacular. I am told it is the fifth-largest stadium in the Premier League and the twelfth largest in the UK. Before my visit to Manchester in 2010, I hadn’t ever seen the game live in a stadium and it was a really exciting experience! 3. A South East Asia experience I had heard a lot about the night safari in Singapore, and that’s one of the things I wanted to do. I was told the safari involved walking a trail in pitch darkness. I took out time from my schedule to do this. From coming face to face with the one-horned rhinoceros to hyenas, the Singapore Night Safari isn’t for the faint hearted.4. Shopping cityI love Dubai. I have been visiting Dubai for the last six years and a lot of my films have been shot there. I like the Mall of the Emirates. I am not a very big shopper but I really like the experience of walking around a mall, stopping by at the coffee shops. I am not a very brand or label conscious shopper. If I had to pick brands-I like a lot of dresses by Dolce & Gabbana among western designers. My other favourite is Roberto Cavalli. 5. On LondonI am very close to my family and London being my hometown will always harbour a special place in my heart. Namastey London was a turning point in my career and I’ve very fond memories of shooting the film. My sisters and I would paint the town red post pack-up as we dined at the amazing restaurants, cafes and have a blast together. 6. Favourite foodJapanese cuisine is my all time favourite. I can live on sushi. Wasabi By Morimoto at the Taj Mahal Palace would be my pick for the best sushi in Mumbai.advertisement
