Report: Saks Fifth Avenue rolls out item-level RFID pilot

Looking for evidence that retailers are worried about falling behind their peers when it comes to deploying RFID technology? That’s the main reason why retailer Saks Fifth Avenue recently piloted the technology.

According to a blog post in Supply Chain Digest, the retailer is testing the technology in five key areas: shoe audits, denims, fashion items, loss prevention and vendor tagging. SCD quoted comments made by Sarah Polworth, director of vendor relations and EDI at Saks, during the Vendor Compliance Federation conference held in Orlando this week.

Here’s an excerpt from the blog post:

Polworth said that just four weeks or so into the testing, there really isn’t enough data to draw many conclusions yet, and that the project team doesn’t want to start analyzing the results in detail because the pilots are not really yet in “steady state” mode in what will ultimately be 3-6 months of testing.

That said, some early results have already stood out. Polworth said, for example, that the shoe audit process used to take 16.5 man hours across several store associates. With RFID, that effort is taking only 1.5 hours, dramatically improving productivity, and likely meaning that Saks would perform the task more frequently in the future than the once per week that it performs the shoe audits currently, improving shoe presentation.

“Shoe audit seems to be an easy win” Polworth said.
