5 Ways Integrated RFID Helps Suits U Manage their Stores Better
Integrated RFID and retail management technology helps you increase merchandising efficiency.
From their start Suits U has been using their Retail Pro to manage replenishment and inventory, along with customer data, back office, performance and operations.
With Retail Pro, they have grown to a 12-store business spanning 3 US states and the internet.
"Everybody wears too many hats in retail," said co-owner, Jerry Nainani. "We needed Retail Pro technology to help us gain greater control in store and inventory management."
As they grew, physical inventory and other inventory management processes became a labor-intensive bottleneck.
A considerable amount of time and employee labor was spent performing each step of stocking: Getting the goods, entering data, tagging items, scanning, sorting for individual stores, taking and arranging deliveries and checking in all the merchandise.
After that, periodic merchandise checks were needed to reconcile the numbers entered in the system to ensure they match the items on the sales floor.
"The entire process cost us days of time," says Nainani. "Integrating RFID with Retail Pro helped us eliminate steps in the merchandising process."
Suits U tags every item with RFID technology, which gives them granular, zone-level visibility into their inventory and allows for quicker, more accurate physical inventory checks.
The process is now finished in a few hours rather than several days, achieving significant efficiency gains.
