Enable better inventory management and tracking with SML’s item-level RFID solution for electronics.

Industry Challenges

The electronics industry is one of the largest retail segments in the world, yet inventory management is still largely done using outdated SKU-based methods and barcode technology. Amid rapidly evolving consumer purchasing behavior, new omnichannel buying models, increasing competition between retailers, and the need for a step-function improvement to inventory accuracy, the time for a new approach has arrived.

By combining item-level product schemas, standards-based RFID technology, and innovative software applications, SML helps electronics retailers better manage inventory and improve customer service. But the benefits don’t stop there. The ROI from RFID technology enables electronics brands and retailers to create enterprise value and accelerate transformational change to succeed in the new era of retailing.
