Replace old, manual counting methods with automated, hands-free, always-on inventory solutions that offer unparalleled inventory insight and ease. Retailers report inventory cycle counts run 25 times faster using a RAIN RFID system than manually counting each item.
Stop guessing when you have the answer in-hand. With accurate inventory data, retailers make smart decisions about allocation that improve margins with less inventory in the supply chain, and more dollars in the business.
Sell down to the last item
Use accurate inventory data to make all products available across all locations, sell every item, and reduce the number of items requiring mark downs. Accurate inventory data helps retailers reach customers across the many selling channels today's shoppers demand.
Handheld Reader for Inventory Intelligence
Impinj partner DENSO WAVE provides handheld readers built with an Impinj reader chip. These handheld readers are used by retailers to quickly count inventory and reduce the time it takes to count stock while increasing data accuracy. The result? Store staff can stay focused on customers.
Identify and respond to trends
Knowing where each item in a store is at all times provides an intimate look into how products move. Get alerts when people walk out with unpaid items and then use that item data to identify trends. Go beyond the alarm and move from reactive to proactive with greater visibility into loss and shoplifting details.
Know exactly when and where every item exits
With retailers operating so many different sales channels, it's difficult to track all the places loss could occur. With one integrated system, retailers capture unique item data along with the date, time, and exit location of a stolen item to enable proactive prevention strategies. Eliminate blind spots that leave retailers vulnerable and put profitability at risk.
Seamlessly integrate checkout, return and loss prevention
Customers have high expectations of their in-store experiences. And retailers want to avoid the hassle of removing bulky loss prevention tags at checkout. With a system powered by Impinj, retailers gain a seamless automated checkout and return process that’s integrated with loss prevention for a full solution that works across all channels.
Retail Loss Prevention from Sensormatic

Increase store and online conversion
Accurate inventory data is the foundation for reliable and profitable customer order fulfillment across multiple channels. Increased inventory accuracy allows retailers to expose all inventory to shoppers, making every item available to every shopper wherever they want to purchase.
Fulfill orders, correctly, and quickly
Fulfillment costs escalate when orders are routed to the wrong location or when retailers can’t find the promised item. Find the right product, quickly, to reduce cancellations, limit delays, and increase customer satisfaction.
Make accurate decisions on product allocation
Too much inventory on store shelves leads to higher labor costs, excessive material handling, and clutter. Reduce overstocking, improve margins, and keep the right amount of inventory in the right place by leveraging accurate inventory data.
Accurate Data for Omnichannel Operations with SAP Hybris
Learn how automated inventory management solutions from SAP Hybris and Impinj can help retailers run a more profitable business. The Impinj IoT Connector connects RAIN RFID infrastructure to the SAP® Hybris® Commerce solution to deliver accurate, real-time inventory data. This data can help retailers make better inventory and supply-chain decisions that result in fewer markdowns, reduced inventory, and improved shopper experiences online and in-store.
Maximize on-shelf availability
Every successful retailer knows that optimizing assortment results in increased sales. But without visibility into inventory it's an impossible task to manage. Use accurate inventory data to track what’s on the sales floor, verify replenishment tasks are completed, and ensure product availability for customers at all times—especially when busy.
Ensure accurate replenishment
Without accurate visibility into inventory levels on the sales floor and in the stock room, what’s available is anyone’s guess. Take the guesswork out of inventory tracking to maintain and verify that stores operate with the inventory that drive sales and the right products are on the way from distribution centers.
Automatically alert staff
When stores are busy, employees don’t keep up with replenishment tasks, crippling sales when it matters the most. Empower busy sales associates to see exactly what items are needed on the sales floor with automated replenishment reports. This streamlined process also gives managers visibility into staff performance.

Protect product value
Grey markets can erode the standing of a brand, lower consumer trust, and devalue products. Ensure the authenticity of a brand to maintain consumer confidence in the value of individual products and uphold a company’s overall reputation.
Discourage return fraud and grey market sellers and help discover how counterfeit goods enter the market. This reaps benefits not just for consumers, and resellers, but the industry overall.
Gain visibility into source and supply
Use the same technology to authenticate your products and track their movement through the supply chain. This allows for absolute assurance of their authenticity and visibility into distribution and supply chain operations.
Impinj + YanaGou Partnership Addresses Brand Protection in China
Impinj and Chinese e-commerce company, YanaGou, are partnering to develop an authentication platform that will bring a new level of brand protection for international retailers bringing products into China. YanaGou is an e-commerce retail platform that sources goods directly from international brands and brings them directly to Chinese consumers, instead of through resellers, to decrease the risk of counterfeiting. YanaGou is able to do so by handling sourcing logistics, warehousing, and product authentication themselves. The Impinj platform will enable YanaGou to authenticate goods as they move through the supply chain.
