Spanish based international fashion company Desigual has used Avery Dennison's new Pathfinder Ultra Platinum technology to help streamline its entire labelling process, from re-pricing garments sold in different countries to marking down sale items.

Desigual uses more than 300 Pathfinder devices with customised software across its 3,500 multi-brand stores, 100 Desigual-exclusive stores, and 250 corners within existing stores. 

The tool includes a data terminal, scanner and portable printer, all running as a single application on Microsoft Windows CE.

Because it incorporates a wireless system, the labeler can be connected to the counter using the store's Wi-Fi system, and as garments are re-labelled, the price changes take place automatically.

Re-labelling can be done directly at the store shelves, and there is no need to close a store to start markdowns or work overtime to update data.

Desigual has also benefited from being able to apply new discounts to garments that are not selling well or draw attention to certain products during a sale.
