SML launched its Clarity Store solution, designed to eliminate the need for stock receiving at destinations. The technology utilizes fixed RFID readers placed in the ceiling of trailers and trucks to automate accurate, hands-free, proof of delivery at retail stores.
“Last-mile delivery continues to cause a number of challenges for retailers and logistics service providers, and challenges around inventory management add operational costs and drive poor customer satisfaction. This new solution, leveraging PervasID technology, will remove those hurdles for retailers, enabling real-time visibility of deliveries and opening up a number of ROI levers for a spectrum of customers,” says Dean Frew, CTO and SVP, RFID solutions, SML Group.
- The new feature in Clarity Store provides an alternative solution that gives retailers real-time visibility of their last-mile deliveries.
- The solution is applicable for use in distribution center and retail store deliveries, as well as with last-mile deliveries for logistics businesses.
- Mounted in delivery vehicles, the technology reads all products at item-level within the delivery vehicle between deliveries. Information is then sent to the SML Clarity cloud solution, where it integrates with retailers’ and logistics companies’ enterprise systems, updating inventory levels and proof of delivery.
