By leveraging technology, we know exactly what we have in stock, where it is physically placed, and can automatically reorder product to promptly fulfill our customer’s orders. Our vision has never been to be the biggest, but to be the best.
St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) July 22, 2010
Premier online shoe retailer, Peltz Shoes (PeltzShoes.com) announced today that it has completed its initial assessment of its RFID based inventory management system. The RFID system places a small radio transmitter on every box within the warehouse and on the retail floor. Using a small wheeled cart, management can capture inventory levels instantly. Auto-replenishment software is integrated to the RFID management system, ensuring the best selling shoe styles and popular hard to find shoe sizes are always in stock and that low volume products are systematically phased out.
The RFID system has been in place for approximately 12 months and has saving over 1500 man hours. The system’s pro-active inventory control provides a unique level of customer service – making certain that Peltz Shoes can stock hard to find shoe sizes for even its most difficult to fit customers.
“Managing inventory across 4 physical locations inclusive of over 46,000 square feet of floor space can be a challenging task,” said Gary Peltz, Co-Owner of Peltz Shoes. “By leveraging technology, we know exactly what we have in stock, where it is physically placed, and can automatically reorder product to promptly fulfill our customer’s orders. Our vision has never been to be the biggest, but to be the best.”
