Gap Co., Ltd. is a worldwide leader in specialty retail, including apparel, accessories and other products for adults, women, children and infants. For Central American developing country and Old Navy branded products, sales in 2000 reached $ 13.6 billion. From September 1, 2001, Gap will open 4,024 stores in the US, UK, Canada, France, Japan, and Germany. In the United States, customers can also purchase the company's products online at gap.com.
Gap has extensive experience in applying RFID tag identification technology to clothing tracking and inventory management. Almost 100% of the company's available inventory has RFID tags attached. Once the shipment order is received, Gap employees can immediately know the corresponding area where the corresponding size and specifications are placed. They can use the ID number of the RFID electronic tag to manage and sort the size and specifications of the entire inventory of clothes. With an RFID tracking system, stores can avoid customers spending time "finding their own products," or having to get a shopping ticket when they leave the store, because all purchase information is stored in RFID tags and the store's management system.
Unlike other ID identification technologies, RFID tags allow multiple tags to be read at the same time, and the tags of each garment are tracked by the system, regardless of whether the garments are packed in a clothing box in the warehouse or in other boxes Or folded and placed on the shelf. RFID technology also eliminates human error factors and does not require visual reading, which simplifies inventory management and enables pallets, boxes and single items in the warehouse to be easily and quickly located and used by the system.
Gap has a long history of introducing new technologies to the retail market. The TI-RFID technology uses 13.56 MHz as the operating frequency, and the technology application is accepted and adopted by many companies around the world. It extends to many other retail market applications. The success of the field test of this project greatly inspired TI-RFID Promotion of the application of technology in the retail market. Of course, as the RFID technology industry continues to expand and grow, the price of smart tags will continue to fall, and we will see RFID technology being applied to more diverse retail market applications.
