Nedap iD Cloud is the only scalable enterprise platform that brings together all EPC inventory data and its unique item life history in one place to create inventory visibility across supply chains retail through the use of RFID technology.
Knowing exactly what products are moving through the supply chain is crucial to improving product availability, while keeping prices and costs low. This leads to less markdowns, less waste and higher profitability. This also forms the basis for omnichannel concepts such as BOPIS (Click & Collect) and Ship-from-Store.
“For customers, it doesn’t matter whether they’re buying something from their own store or from a franchise. For them, Charanga is one, and that is how it should be. To be able to provide a pleasant and seamless shopping experience everywhere, we have implemented RFID in all stores,” said Manuel De la Maza, CEO of Charanga.
To ensure both a pleasant shopping experience and operational efficiency, Charanga chose to include 150 owned and franchised stores in this project. The brand’s international growth ambitions have accelerated the decision-making process for RFID. This technology provides a complete, real-time view of inventory, helping to optimize product availability across all channels.
“This ensures that we always have accurate, real-time inventory information, both in our own stores and in franchise stores and convenience stores,” added De la Maza. “Because we know exactly what is being sold at each outlet, it’s easier for us to deliver precisely the items they actually need, thereby facilitating and extending omnichannel services such as Click & Collect across our entire chain of stores. In other words, we can better serve our customers anytime, anywhere, whether they come to the physical store or through the digital channel. The ability of iD Cloud to scale quickly through minimal impact to our existing IT systems drove our decision to move forward with Nedap.”
“We are delighted with Charanga’s trust and look forward to a healthy collaboration,” said Ser-gio Gutiérrez, Business Development Manager at Nedap. “After the implementation in stores, we will together explore the possibilities in the distribution center and the role of RFID for loss prevention.”
