- Nov. 17, 2015 -
Checkpoint Systems, Inc., a leading global supplier of merchandise
availability solutions for the retail industry, today announced that fashion
retailer Moods of Norway has selected it as the premier supplier for its global
RFID source tagging program rollout.
As a result, the fashion retailer, which has stores in Norway, the Unites States
and Sweden, will be able to further speed up the tagging process and continue to
track apparel from source to store and omni-channel, ensuring merchandise
availability so that shoppers can always find what they need.
Moods of Norway implemented RFID in 2014 in its stores in Norway and Sweden.
Beyond in-store use, Moods of Norway also uses RFID for omni-channel online
orders. For example, more than 90 percent of its SS15 (spring/summer 2015)
collection was tagged with RFID, and about 20 percent of the online orders are
fulfilled from the stores.
Moods of Norway is using Checkpoint's Zephyr 2 RFID labels for all SKUs. It is
one of the first generation of new global tagging solutions approved in multiple
apparel and hardline categories for the U.S. and Europe. This allows Moods of
Norway to use the same tag globally across many categories, streamlining its
source tagging operations.
The fashion retailer is also using Checkpoint's
Check-Net online ordering service to tag its entire fashion collection at
source for 70+ manufacturers based in China, Turkey, Holland, India, etc. Source
tagging shifts the security tag application process from a manual
labor-intensive process at the store to a centralized process at the point of
manufacture, allowing store associates to focus on servicing their shoppers
rather than applying tags.
Check-Net facilitates the complete end-to-end process, from order entry to
production. With its enhanced graphic interface, users can easily navigate
through the web page to select the required items, enter necessary variable
information, and complete the shopping cart with peace of mind.
Many of Check-Net production facilities have a unique system that is eight times
faster than industry-standard thermal transfer printers and offers higher
accuracy (99.9 percent) and quality. This makes Checkpoint's source tagging
program ideal for apparel retailers with global operations that require a large
number of labels for their stores around the world. Moreover, Check-Net enables
Moods of Norway to check order status in real time to see when labels have been
printed, picked up by the courier and shipped to vendors.
