Enabling Source-to-Consumer Visibility in the Apparel and General Merchandise Industry

In today's omni-channel retail world, consumers are in control. They expect immediate access to accurate product information. Quite simply: they will move on, if they can't find the products they want when they want them. The apparel and general merchandise industries are most concerned with improving inventory accuracy and speed-to-market capabilities to satisfy consumer demands, while still addressing requirements around business process efficiencies and product safety.

These industries have actively supported the importance of GS1 Standards for years, and that involvement continues to this day. What began decades ago with the U.P.C. barcode, Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), floor ready merchandise, has evolved to include the adoption and use of Electronic Product Code (EPC)-enabled radio frequency identification (RFID).
