Nedap has inked a deal with Swedish fashion brand, Acne Studios, for the supply of its RFID software platform !D Cloud. Roll-out to the retailer’s 45 stores in 12 countries was accomplished in three months.
Mattias Magnusson, CEO at Acne Studios, says: “Our main challenge is how to unify the online and in-store experience and service in order to gain and maintain the trust of our customers. The only way to master this is by having a nearly 100% stock accuracy. Therefore, automating our stock taking with RFID was the logical next step. Once we decided to move to RFID, we were looking for a cloud solution that fits our IT strategy. We believe that in today’s cloud empowered world, it does not make sense to opt for an on-premises software solution. Cloud solutions like !D Cloud, but also for other fields like CRM or e-commerce, enable us to scale much faster with only a fraction of the internal work load and ongoing costs.”
