Problems with security and inventory. Jade Jewellery is a Saudi-based jewelry company that operates four stores acrossSaudi Arabiaand specializes in European jewelry. The company also trades in diamonds and provides exquisite designs that attract a very selective clientele.
Jade Jewellery implements RFID technology. Following the trial, Jade chose Motorola fixed RFID readers because of their ability to integrate with a wide range of other applications. This included DEPCOSystems’ software application called Asset TrailIntelligent Store, which monitors, controls and tracks tagged jewelry.
RFID improves business. "Since implementing Motorola’s RFID solutions in January 2008, there have been no internal thefts, providing Jade Jewellery with an ROI of approximately 400%,” said Mrs. Sukaina H. Mackie, Owner, Jade Jewellery. "Prior to implementing DEPCO Systems’ RFID solution, missing items would go unnoticed until a month or two later. Periodic inventory done manually usually took two to three working days to audit all stores, costing valuable company time and resources. With the new RFID system, it takes about 10 minutes to audit the entire stock.”
