Spanish womenswear brand Encuentro Moda has selected a software platform to achieve full supply chain and merchandise visibility.

Encuentro Moda has selected Nedap‘s !D Cloud software platform. The company says it wants to achieve visibility within its 125 stores across Spain. The RFID roll-out began in September 2020.

!D Cloud is a software-as-a-service platform specifically developed for retail RFID applications. It provides retailers the fastest way to implement RFID and improve their in-store stock accuracy to over 98%.

Encuentro Moda source tags all its garments with RFID labels, which allows full traceability and stock visibility throughout the supply chain.

CEO Gonzalo de Lorenzo, says: “As a brand with a limited digital presence just a few years ago, we have worked very hard as a company to become a major omnichannel player in the field of womenswear and accessories. To achieve a leading position we need to be at the vanguard of adopting game-changing technologies, such as RFID. This allows us to be absolutely certain of our stock levels, track all products right from the source of production and never miss a sale.”

Encuentro Moda has established a closed-loop between ERP, POS and !D Cloud RFID inventory management solutions. This connectivity allows seamless data transfer and provides extremely accurate real-time business information. With the resulting ability to track stock levels in real-time, the online store now not only reflects warehouse levels but all in-store stock too.

“We selected Nedap based on good referrals from major players in the fashion industry. The fact that this product is already mature means we can implement it quickly and scalably without the need for a proof of concept,” explains De Lorenzo.
