In a world of mass data and mass information, Intelligent Labels help create certainty. Where a connected world can be a better world, full of greater possibilities.

With this future in mind, we’ve been thinking about, making, and improving Intelligent Labels and the underlying RFID technologies for many years.

We describe our overarching technology solutions as a ‘progressive family’; a suite that’s flexible, adaptive, and ever-expanding. From the earliest days of barcode innovation – into RFID & NFC, and now inclusive of pioneering tech like PragmatIC and Wiliot – our progressive family not only reminds us of how far we have come but prompts us to keep our energies forever obsessing over what might come next.

Apparel and Retail

Today and tomorrow’s consumers expect to buy what they want anytime, anywhere, wholly on their terms. Brands and retailers in apparel and footwear have been some of the first to optimize the benefits of adding digital identifiers to every product.

In addition to improving inventory accuracy and brand security, they’re using intelligent labels to enable more satisfying omnichannel shopping experiences for customers who shop via a hybrid of bricks-and-mortar stores and online channels.


Intelligent labels are a powerful solution that addresses many of the shared challenges of inventory accuracy and supply chain management facing the beauty industry today. 

Additionally, Intelligent Label’s RFID solutions enable consumers to learn about an item’s origins and ingredients, take advantage of promotions, make additional purchases, and interact with brands and retailers in a more personalized way.


By adding a unique identifier and online connectivity to every item in any inventory, Avery Dennison Intelligent Labels let grocers, restaurants, convenience stores, and food suppliers dramatically improve inventory management, efficiency, traceability, sustainability and customer satisfaction. 

Our food solutions enable inventory optimized for customer demand, greater product transparency, faster and more precise traceability during recalls, and the recapture of profits currently lost to waste.


Of the 27 million bags mishandled at airports every year, you want to know yours won’t be one of them. 

Our Intelligent Labels for aviation offer read rates of nearly 100%, so fewer bags are misplaced. They also speed throughput and help reduce injuries among handlers. Your luggage should be like your shadow. Our tags ensure it never strays far.

Pharmaceutical and Healthcare

Reliable, accurate, and efficient pharmaceutical labeling is vital to patient health and safety. Our Intelligent Labels solutions help to reduce human error and ensure correct dispensing of medication. They also streamline efficiencies, improve accuracy, and help manage costs, all while fighting brand counterfeiting.
