University Research Confirms Benefits of RFID Use Throughout Retail Supply Chain

The University of Parma's RFID Lab recently announced the results of radio frequency identification's impact on operational efficiencies and sales in an end-to-end supply chain study. The lab reports that store sales increased by nearly 10 percent during the pilot, due to increased replenishment, and that labor efficiencies and data accuracy also improved throughout the supply chain.

"The results of this pilot show unequivocally that passive UHF RFID technology can increase labor efficiency, improve data accuracy and lead to more sales," says Antonio Rizzi, the RFID Lab's founder and director, which has spearheaded several other RFID studies involving the fashion industry.
