  • 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 its benefits?
  • Are they interested in driving adoption forward?

Meet Bill Toney, Vice President Global RFID Market Development

How I inspire my team:
We’re changing the retail landscape, so I try to excite the people who work with me by consistently reminding them that we are a part of this massive industry transformation.

How RFID has transformed the industry:
To start, it offers 65% to 95% inventory accuracy, which has an enormous impact on a business’ bottom line. It also optimizes omnichannel and digital, which are key elements of any marketing strategy.

The business case for RFID:
Aside from improving inventory management and off-the-chart efficiencies, it typicallly pays for itself in less than a year. The average is 6 months.
