AIM 2015 RFID Case Study Competition Participant

The Business and Technical Challenge
Traditionally for retailers, annual fiscal
inventories are costly and potentially
disruptive to their daily business. With
Soma’s relatively few physical inventory
counts each year, accuracy could steadily
decline throughout the months until
the next inventory. Accordingly, their
stores did not have confidence in their
inventory numbers. Since intimate apparel
merchandise is heavily style, size and
color oriented, keeping a full assortment
always available on the sales floor was
labor intensive. The current replenishment
process was difficult, lacking accurate
inventory visibility on the floor and in the
backroom. When shipments were received,
associates only knew what was in each
box by opening it and sorting through all
contents, making it challenging

The Solution
Soma launched an RFID pilot project
with Tyco Retail Solutions in 13 of their
stores to address their inventory accuracy
and visibility challenges. Their real-time
RFID inventory store solution focused
on a variety of inventory management
processes including weekly cycle
counting versus the previous annual fiscal
inventory, store receiving, daily sales floor
replenishment, product location assistance
for replenishment and customer service,
and exit door monitoring. Soma will deploy
a new point of sale (POS) system next year
and will then add RFID POS transactions.
