Fujitsu Transaction Solutions Inc. announced that Staples Business Depot will install additional stores with AbsoluteSKY’s intelliTRACKER inventory tracking system. The announcement comes on the heels of the results from an initial five-store pilot of the system.
During the pilot, the intelliTRACKER system proved more accurate than physical counts, and shrinkage for the tagged inventory was eradicated. The system also enabled for quick balancing of Staples’ master inventory system, while becoming a critical tool for locating merchandise.
Working with Fujitsu, Staples Business Depot, deployed AbsoluteSKY’s real-time, long range inventory tracking system in five stores in early 2008. The business relationship began with a proof-of-concept test in early 2007.
Fujitsu and AbsoluteSKY formed their strategic relationship in 2006 to help retailers get the right product, to the right place, at the right time. The intelliTRACKER system uses RFID to accurately track inventory to the item level in real-time, while providing customer benefits that includes increased inventory turns; elimination of missed sales as a result of out-of-stocks; reduction of in store operating costs; and extensive control over loss prevention.
