Avery Dennison RFID has expanded its Pharmaceutical and Healthcare portfolio to include two new UHF RFID inlay solutions for operation in a wide range of medical environments.

RFID + Retail: Reduced Cost.
Increased Productivity.

Unlike traditional track-and-trace technologies, RFID 
assigns a unique identifier for each individual tagged item 
and requires no direct line of sight in the retail environment.
That means RFID has the power to:

  • Enable inventory accuracy close to 99% in retail stores
  • Facilitate last-minute inventory replenishment, reducing inventory and out-of-stocks
  • Monitor product quality for foods and supply pedigree data
  • Provides an identifier to highlight counterfeiting returns
  • Reduce shrink
  • Enhance the omnichannel retail consumer experience

  • Do you have visibility to your item-level, in-store inventory accuracy? Are you aware of the impact it has on your business?
  • How robust is your stocking and replenishment program?
  • Do you have disciplined store operations?
  • How familiar is your C-suite with RFID technologies and their benefits? Are they interested in driving adoption forward?
