Swedish Sports Apparel Retailer Uses In-Store RFID

Nilorn Group, a producer of clothing labels, has developed an RFID-enabled self-inventorying product display for sports apparel company Craft of Scandinavia. Craft expects to use the system to track inventory of its merchandise within retail stores. Since September, says Per Wagnås, Nilorn's vice president of retail information systems, the garment maker has been testing the system in Nilorn's Gothenburg, Sweden, showroom using a mobile test unit.
The testing involves experimenting with various RFID interrogators, antennas, software and tags. If the tests go well, Wagnås says, Craft intends to install the system in stores throughout Sweden that carry its products. "We plan to have test racks in the stores by spring 2008", Wagnås says.
