Checkpoint Systems and RGIS Partner to Speed Retailers’ RFID Implementations

Checkpoint Systems, Inc., (NYSE:CKP), a leading global supplier of merchandise availability solutions for the retail industry, and RGIS, LLC, the market leader in supply chain, inventory, insights, merchandising and optimization solutions, today announced here at the NRF 103rd Annual Convention & Expo that they have entered into a global partnership to bring the full RFID-based inventory management solution to retailers.

The end-to-end solution incorporates the best-of-breed Merchandise Visibility Solution from Checkpoint, together with RGIS’s global team of inventory specialists.

Checkpoint’s Merchandise Visibility Solution includes:

  • Industry-leading OATSystems software
  • RFID hardware
  • RFID tags
  • RFID-trained field engineers to deploy and support the implementation
  • RFID-based EAS leveraging the OneTag™ approach and Wirama Radar™
  • RFID-based point-of-sale solutions
  • RFID compliance tools

RGIS’s team provides tag-up for pilots and roll-outs, as well as cycle counting and audits for retailers that opt for third-party support for these activities. Industry studies have consistently shown that frequent inventories are key to the successful use of RFID by retailers to maintain inventory accuracy and reduce out-of-stock items.

“The benefits of RFID for inventory management are well-documented, with accuracy increasing from around 65% to 98% or even higher," commented Dr. Bill Hardgrave, Dean and Wells Fargo Professor, Auburn University Harbert College of Business, and founder of the University of Arkansas RFID Research Center. "But as with many innovations, as they become more routine, compliance to the standard operating procedure can wane, so it becomes important for retailers implementing RFID to take steps to ensure continued compliance to provide consistently high accuracy and payback from the investment.”

“As retailers rapidly scale-up their RFID implementations, they are looking for opportunities to shorten the time-to-value and reduce the risks inherent in an enterprise solution rollout,” said Per Levin, President and Chief Sales Officer Shrink Management and Merchandise Visibility Solutions. “The combined world-class capabilities of RGIS and Checkpoint will help our customers ensure successful RFID deployment.”

“Inventory and data collection are critical to retailers’ effective operations,” noted Bill Carpou, RGIS’s Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing. “Checkpoint and RGIS deliver the full end-to-end solution that retailers are increasingly looking for to best serve their customers and deliver a positive in store experience while enhancing profitability."

Checkpoint and RGIS have also designed several packages to help facilitate financial flexibility for retailers implementing RFID from pilot through full deployment.

Both companies are exhibiting at, and sponsors of, the NRF Annual Convention & Expo currently underway here at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. Checkpoint is located in booth #2244, and RGIS is in booth #2474.
