- Cancellation of inactivity times.
Supply chains are at the core of business management and involve many parties. Thus, a supply chain is a system of retail organizations, people, activities, information, and resources working together to create and move a product or service from supplier to customer. Natural resources, raw materials and components are transformed into a finished good during the process, and delivered to the end-customer.
Supply chain structures are complex, mainly integrated between various companies and require collaboration between them.
Supply chain integration is a key factor of business performance and is therefore a major concern for firms. Indeed, international supply chain management raises a certain number of concerns, among which:
- The challenges inherent to globalization and its drifts.
- Cost containment and its fast-paced approach
- Risk reduction and its long-term performance
- Individual product item tracking
Supply chain risks are associated with the day-to-day management operations such as safety stock and outgoing shipment lead time or overtime. RFID&NFC technology will support Supply chains and will support Retail store (stock inventory & antitheft& reverse logistics process) including a clear omnichannel digital strategy and would become a key strategic competitive advantage.
Weak supply chain management will lead to inaccurate results: the clearest answer of disruptions or can be found in any industries, such as the cosmetic, food, pharmaceutical or textile and luxury industries, which concern consumer product safety and or product quality. Lack of visibility on the process increases the risks of product returns (reverse logistics), waste, losses, delays and reduced quality.
How Brands are responding to these trends?
How can they provide to the end consumers some valuable information on the origin of the product?
Their eco-raw material strategies? Or informed about the origin of raw materials?
How could they engage an efficient qualified one to one consumer interaction?
THE MANUFACTURING 4.0
Each product has a unique digital identity
from RFID to NFC to GS1 digital link
we have developed long lasting tags resistant to washing ,dry cleaning and dryers with over 300 cycles and many more whether bi-techno or simple RFID&NFC suitable for each of your product (Garment,Leatherbag cosmetic&fragrance,
wines&spirits,food) as for ,instance a fully biodegradable adhesive sticker paper Bi-techno tag.
Each item, or batch gets a unique Digital Identity
in the itmatters Cloud platform, making them traceable up to retail stores worldwide.
