Checkpoint Systems Announces Testing of New RFID-based Solution
NEW YORK, NY: Checkpoint Systems, a provider of merchandise availability solutions for the retail industry, has announced that food retailers are now testing its in-progress RFID-based fresh meat solution before introducing it more widely.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is the wireless use of electromagnetic fields to transfer data, which automatically identifies and tracks tags attached to tags. It allows recognition of an object from a distance without needing a line of sight. According to the company, RFID-based meat solution will help in diminishing the loss and the linked labor costs at food retailers due to expiration.
“Currently, most food retailers have no easy way to track fresh meat once it’s packaged. Our fresh meat solution will make all processes in the meat department streamlined with very quick and easy-to-use data,” says Uwe Sydon, Senior VP, and CTO of Checkpoint Systems.
The prominent benefits that outstands this new solution are it increases markdown compliance, enhance the customer experience by developing food freshness and on-shelf availability, and can be adopted by employees into their present daily routines without any hassle.
