Tally is equipped with both RFID and Computer Vision capabilities for optimum accuracy
Decathlon utilizes AD-324u8 and AD-383u7 product tags, that are read by Tally’s built-in RFID reader, complementing Tally’s computer vision capabilities. Leveraging that dual-modality of RFID and Computer Vision, Tally is able to perform daily RFID scans with incredible accuracy and reliability – of more than 97% – while simultaneously inspecting shelves for pricing errors and analyzing the store layout for shelf optimization.
Simbe just unveiled the latest generation of Tally, Tally 3.0 – the most advanced retail robot on the market. With its enhanced optical system and improved durability and maneuverability, Tally 3.0 uses a suite of sensors to operate safely during normal store hours alongside shoppers and employees. Its new embedded data processor enables the robot to analyze inventory more quickly and share critical shelf insights with store teams faster, allowing retailers to address issues like empty shelves and misplaced products more quickly, resulting in a better in-store experience. Against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, Tally also helps retailers reduce employee to customer contact and keep aisles less crowded by replacing the need for teams to regularly survey products alongside shoppers.
Now, current and future customers of Aveny Dennison can experience a glimpse of “retail nirvana” at Avery Dennison’s RFID Lab at Miamisburg, Ohio, in addition to any Decathlon store in the US.
Francisco Melo, Vice President and General Manager, Avery Dennison Smartrac, states: “We are excited to welcome Simbe’s latest Tally iteration into our RFID Lab. We believe in a future where every physical item has a unique digital identity, and the value that it delivers in store is linked to both the accuracy and efficiency of the reading infrastructure. We see value for our customers, who have adopted or are considering adopting RFID technology in their stores, to utilize an autonomous inventory solution, like Tally, in complex retail environments. We see increasing interest in the technology with important customers like Decathlon testing it today."
“We’re pleased to partner with Avery Dennison, the leader in RFID, to unveil Tally 3.0,” said Brad Bogolea, co-founder and CEO of Simbe. “At Simbe, we believe better inventory data is the key to unlocking massive efficiency and opportunity across the retail supply chain. We look forward to continuing to provide the most advanced solution on the market to the retail industry’s most challenging, common pain point – inventory management.”
