Dillard’s Announces RFID Pilot
Little Rock, Ark., Dillard's will begin an item-level radio frequency identification (RFID) tagging pilot in its stores this month. The pilot will consist of certain styles of merchandise being marked with the RFID-enabled tags.
The company issued a statement in which it said the new tags will enable its store associates to perform more frequent inventory counts on merchandise, with the ultimate goal of more timely replenishment of out-of-stocks.
"We believe that the use of RFID technology can enable us to provide an even higher level service to our customers by enhancing our ability to have the right product available at the right time while providing us even more accurate information from our inventory control system,” the company said.
