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.

Omnichannel Fulfillment:
Deliver best-in-class online operations with accurate, real-time inventory data

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.

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.

Sales Floor Replenishment:
Ensure timely, automated replenishment of stock on the sales floor

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.

Brand Protection:
Verify an item’s authenticity, source, and supply route, and prevent counterfeiting

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. 

Fight counterfeiting

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.
