Item-level RFID is used by many retailers to enhance store operations and greatly increase in-store inventory accuracy. But there remains untapped potential in leveraging EPC/RFID for the purpose of aiding in supply chain visibility to support claims compliance and reconciliation.

 

Apparel Industry to Leverage New GS1 US Implementation Guideline for Claims Compliance and Reconciliation

RFID technology enables the fast and accurate identification of products, helping retailers and brands increase inventory accuracy and improve supply chain visibility. Since RFID technology does not require line-of-sight, a case/carton of items on a conveyor may be automatically read and checked for accuracy with no impact on throughput. By exchanging this data, trading partners can simplify and expedite dialogue regarding claims.

The exchange can help minimize administrative effort made to document and drive trading partner business negotiations, final settlement costs, and the accounting of working capital under dispute in the significant period of time before disputes are settled. Looking further, this exchange can unlock other opportunities relating to product authenticity, grey market tracking, value-added services, reverse logistics and inventory accuracy.
