Store inventory records may not match on-shelf/on-rack inventory because inventory has been left elsewhere in the store. Locating this inventory is a largely manual, line of sight and thus very time-consuming endeavor, leading to wasted labor and time and/or lost sales.
Goals and Objectives
Enable sales associates to find inventory that has been moved and left in locations in the store where it does not belong, such as the wrong shelf or rounder, abandoned shopping cart, and dressing room.
RFID or other item-level tracking technology, cloud, and PIM/product management
Use Case Summary
Improve in-store fulfillment operations by enabling store associates to quickly locate inventory that has been misplaced in the store to complete online (or in-store) orders.
