Technology makes life easier for people and, no less importantly, uncomplicates their business.
Looking at this perspective, today I want to share with you how TAGs and RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology have helped clothing companies have more control of clothes, prevent losses and increase efficiency.
Perhaps the reader who has been with me here for a long time is wondering why I am writing about it. Well, the answer is simple, because I’m part of it.
No, I don’t have a clothing company and I never had one. However, if you stop to think, my work at Quatenus Tracking and Telemetry also impacts the textile sector. Since the technology developed by my team involves telemetry, RFID and TAGs.
It is through these three that clothing companies have reduced production costs. Bringing these technological innovations to operations makes the entire process more controlled, from managing materials for manufacturing to delivery to the end customer.
The relation between clothing companies and technology
If you aren’t part of the textile industry or even make part of but haven’t had contact with these technologies, I will explain how they help in inventory management.
These technologies can help you to find the product faster. They bring important information that helps in the organization of each stage of the clothing companies management process.
Have you ever wondered how long an employee would take to locate a specific clothe among the hundreds in stock?
Imagine if the company produces 200 pieces of clothing a day. At the end of the week will be 1000 clothes. If the employee searches manually for all sizes 38-40, it will take forever, do you agree? Therefore, it is essential to invest in technologies to make this work automatically. After all, time is money.
Southern Fried Brands: a successful case
As an example of what I’m talking about, I want to share a successful case I read in RFID Journal these days.
Southern Fried Brands, based in South Carolina (United States), has reduced its customer return rate by nearly 99% with RFID technology. In addition, it reduced costs and achieved its ROI (return on investment) in eight months.
Yes, you may be thinking it’s overkill, but it’s not. This is technology working in our favor.
What happens is that, in addition to helping to search and find the product within the company, the technology captures data about what is sent to customers, favoring control over the products sent. As a result, Southern Fried Brands has considerably reduced the return rate on its goods.
Amazing, isn’t it?
How TAGSs helps you to reduce costs and increase efficiency
As in the success case that I mentioned, technology in clothing companies helps achieve significant cost savings and financial returns. When I think about it, I smile broadly because I know that my daily work helps them to achieve these results.
The entire Quatenus Tag product, from technology to design, was my team that developed it. We wanted to create something that would help even more clothing companies and others in various segments that have stock control to have more efficient.
If the company’s products have the Quatenus Tag, the team can check which products are missing, which ones went in and out. If companies haven’t this kind of information automatically, how can they act quickly to prevent errors or losses?
Also, once data is collected by the system, you have access to reports and indicators, for example. Without information it is difficult for clothing companies to optimize inventory management, don’t you think?
Have you thought about the benefits of telemetry and tags in the textile industry from this perspective?
