Monnalisa tags 50 percent of apparel inventory

Monnalisa, a producer and retailer of clothing and accessories for children, has reached its goal for 2012 of tagging half of the apparel items it produces.

The company first introduced RFID in September 2010 as a pilot project for its entire supply chain, starting from smart labels printing to the end user interaction using interactive tools, covering warehouse logistic and point of sale activities. The RFID project also ensures the customer the product originality and traceability.

Monnalisa, RFID, apparel“The FII-RFID project is still on an experimental stage,” said Alessandro Rosi, operation project manager for Monnalisa, “but thanks to the data analysis made so far, we have already calculated the savings coming from the combination of RFID technology and process re-engineering.”

As is true with many retailers, the use of RFID at Monnalisa is driven from the CEO, as demonstrated in this interview with Christian Simoni that appeared in Pambianco News.

Rosi says the primary benefits include improved efficiencies, increased operations control and reliability, and a greater transparency to the consumer due to RFID’s ability to guarantee of product authenticity and provide traceability throughout the entire supply chain.

Rosi also says that regarding the customer experience, the usage of “smart” tools previewed during the Pitti Bimbo PE2012 has generated great interest, “showing a desire for an innovative shopping experience.”

“The project has a strategic value and Monnalisa’s target for the medium term is to consolidate the usage of RFID technology in all its supply chain process in order to extend the benefits, delay the initial costs on a more extended portion of the supply chain and thus reducing the time required to the return on investment,” says Rosi.

CAEN RFID, a manufacturer of UHF RFID readers, and Temera, a system integrator in the fashion and luxury market, partnered to provide Monnalisa with the RFID hardware and solutions for the project.

“Thanks to their flexibility and easiness of use, our RFID products have been implemented in a short time by Temera and Monnalisa,” says Giovanni Grieco, CAEN RFID’s business development manager. “In particular, the usage of our desktop devices on trolleys allowed Monnalisa an efficient management of product and [was] user-friendly for all operators.”
