The solutions deliver item-level visibility and in-store analytics with Detego, inventory intelligence with Nedap, and interactive visual displays with Inmotion. The solutions are built on the Impinj platform, which comprises endpoints (tag chips that uniquely identify items), connectivity (readers and gateways that wirelessly identify the items) and software.

The Impinj platform gives businesses the ability to implement one infrastructure and leverage Item Intelligence – item identity, location and authenticity – in any number of enterprise applications to run their business and deliver compelling consumer experiences.

Real-Time Item-Level Visibility and In-Store Analytics

The Impinj and Detego solution delivers intelligent item-level article management and in-store analytics through complete, real-time supply-chain visibility. The solution delivers insights to store managers about merchandise flow and product availability, allowing them to minimize markdowns.

The solution also helps apparel companies receive accurate inventory information and track goods from point-of-manufacturing to point-of-sale. The resulting benefits for retailers include increased delivery accuracy and fewer mis-shipments, reduced processing costs, and improved inventory accuracy thereby leading to more sales.

Implement Always-on Inventory Management with Impinj and Nedap

Impinj and Nedap developed an affordable, always-on inventory intelligence solution that continuously counts and reconciles store inventory. Today, customers demand and expect more from retailers including accurate inventory and fast order fulfillment. To meet these expectations, retailers need near real-time visibility into their available inventory. The Impinj platform and Nedap !D Cloud application work together to provide retailers with 24/7 inventory updates that can be reconciled with existing ERP systems.

The solution is simple to use, leveraging cloud-based software. It increases store sales with improved inventory visibility. It reduces labor cost and operational inefficiencies from manual cycle counts and undirected replenishment. It also eliminates the excess inventory that stores traditionally employ to compensate for inaccurate inventory visibility.

Create Compelling In-Store Product Displays with Impinj and Inmotion

Impinj and Inmotion joined forces to deliver interactive visual displays that engage customers, help convert product sales and give visibility into shopper behavior. The display solution integrates with existing product-information-management (PIM) systems. It also provides monitoring to improve suggestive selling and conversion factors.

Consumer brands and stores need to capture the attention of busy shoppers and build a consumer and brand relationship with new experiences. With a customizable brand experience, the solution provides a meaningful connection to the brand with targeted and engaging content in the store.
