Lord & Taylor is deploying handheld RFID readers from Motorola Solutions in its stores to maintain accurate inventory levels and prevent out-of-stock situations. This technology allows retailers to rapidly determine how much tagged inventory is in a particular location at a given time.
On a recent conference call with financial analysts, Motorola Solutions CEO, Gregory Brown also reported that the company will be rolling out micro kiosks for price checking to 1,200 Shoppers Drug Mart locations, a Canadian provider of pharmacy products and service.
“We’ve had some great client references,” reported Brown, “I mentioned Lord & Taylor is the most recent.”
Brown discussed recent business opportunities with RFID as well as Motorola’s role in a growing market. “I think more and more retailers and other enterprise clients will also look to incorporate fixed [RFID]. I think there’s opportunities for RFID, both mobile and fixed,” stated Brown.
