Checkpoint Systems announced its alliance with Mojix to bring a new RFID solution for the retail industry.
The company said the new retail IT solution, which will be an always-on, hands-free RFID software, will include Merchandise Visibility Solution from Checkpoint and Mojix’s OmniSenseRF advanced inventory tracking system for retail.
The partners have already deployed the joint solution for an apparel retailer in North America, and have multiple discussions underway for additional implementations.
“We see an increase in the number of apparel retailers interested in the benefits of an always-on, hands-free RFID solution,” said Farrokh Abadi, president and chief operating officer Merchandise Availability Solutions for Checkpoint Systems.
Checkpoint did not reveal the name of the North American apparel retailer.
The combined solution offers business benefits to retailers for continuous, perpetual inventory, item tracking and location identification. The company said retailers can improve store operations and omni-channel program execution.
Mojix’s OmniSenseRF advanced fixed infrastructure solution features a continuous inventory count engine and an item location engine leveraging Mojix’s technology for Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) using phased array antennas.
The company said OmniSenseRF continuous count engine provides continuous visibility of EPC Gen2 tagged goods throughout the store. The OmniSenseRF location engine offers omni-channel retailers increased visibility for pick and ship from store, to find misplaced items and monitor inventory movement throughout the store.
Ramin Sadr, CEO and founder of Mojix, said: “Mojix’s OmniSenseRF retail solution combined with Checkpoint’s Merchandise Visibility Solution enables unprecedented inventory visibility for both in-store and omni-channel operations, providing improved visibility and replenishment, which in turn reduces out-of-stocks, increases sales, and improves the customer’s experience.”
