2 excellent blog posts by Jessica Säilä: "Not to perish so fast" and "From post-it notes to RFID: 15.000 trolleys handled in a single day. Order the new Nordic IDea 2012-2013. Still time to participate in our competition!
Jessica Säilä, one of the world's leading experts in RFID in
Retail, has written two excellent blog posts this week:
1) Not to perish so fast
What do purple pumps and a crate of zucchini have in common?
Well, both expire fast. The pumps can only be sold for some months
before a new trend hits the market and the zucchini life is even
shorter. Both lives can be extended with the help of RFID.
2) From post-it notes to RFID:
15.000 trolleys handled in a single day
Until recently, horticulture distribution powerhouse BAAS
Plantenservice relied heavily on paper lists, which were then
transcribed into a database. Such operation is labor oriented and
always prone to errors. Although it may sound amazing that someone
would jump directly from such "pen-and-paper" operation, it looks
as though this is a growing trend. For example in the case of BAAS
it was more sensible to skip the "typical" step of barcode. In
their case the decisive moment was Container Centralen's "Chip it
project" in 2011.
