Messe Düsseldorf GmbH, Germany March 5-9, Hall 6 / A24

 

Checkpoint Systems, a global leader in merchandise availability solutions for the retail industry, is set to showcase its next generation of connected retail solutions from source to point of sale at this year’s Euroshop the world’s leading retail trade fair that takes place in Germany.

The company will be displaying an array of solutions that enable retailers to increase their product availability, while minimising losses throughout the supply chain.

One of the products on display will be the company’s RFID tunnel solution, that is already successfully used in distribution centres of many leading retail companies. Capturing high-speed RFID-tagged goods, such as packaged cartons, retailers can keep track of goods and achieve high inventory accuracy. At Euroshop, Checkpoint will unveil its latest development of the tunnel, which delivers an even higher throughput.

Another solution on display will be EVOLVE-Store™, which provides retailers with the tools needed to measure, monitor and manage their stores along with data to help them sell more and lose less. By combining data from different sources, such as the store footfall, number of ORC type threat alerts, fitting room usage and response to EAS systems, retailers can achieve chain-wide visibility through one platform.

Checkpoint will also demonstrate its latest developments for grocery retailers. Food waste is one the biggest issues facing the industry. In Europe, every year, more than €14bn worth of beef, chicken, pork and fish is thrown away by retailers. Checkpoint’s RFID-based fresh meat management solution, ‘FreshFinder’, provides a positive alternative to manual inventory counts. Delivering real time, actionable product data that simply cannot be captured by old fashioned stock-taking. Tests have shown that food waste can be reduced by up to 30 per cent, while sales can be increased by seven per cent as a result of an optimised stock picking process.

 

Speaking about the incentive behind the latest innovations, Hiddo Hilboezen, Vice President for Sales for Merchandise Availability Solutions in Germany and Benelux at Checkpoint Systems, commented “In the times of omni-channel trading, inventory, stock accuracy and product availability are key for retailers to attract the loyalty of today’s customer. At EuroShop 2017 we will be showing holistic, tried-and-tested system solutions, which can not only be used to increase the availability of goods and enhance the shopping experience for the consumer, but also contribute to increasing efficiency.”

Torsten Labusch RFID Technical Pre Sales Consultant MV and Carlos Lopez RFID Commercial Director South Europe, will be talking about these solutions and the results they have delivered as part of the EuroCIS Forum on 6 March at 5pm.
