|Retail - AIDC Vertical Markets|
Retail remains one of the fastest evolving vertical markets around the world today. Over the years, UPC barcodes, item-level RFID tags and QR Codes have all revolutionized different aspects of retail operations. Now NFC payments, Bluetooth beacons, mobile marketing and next-generation bar code and RFID systems will define new normal for retailers and consumers, alike.
AIDC does much more for retail than facilitate fast checkout at the point of sale. AIDC technologies provider the foundation for synchronized supply chain management, inventory optimization, product authentication, diversion prevention, shrink control, advanced merchandising, interactive promotions and mobile commerce. AIDC is the foundation for these programs because it can accurately and identify every product, order, shipment, partner and customer, and provides the means to share the information in real time with all the users, mobile devices, web services and enterprise systems that need it.
AIDC technologies play a role in all these developments, and AIM members are playing a leading role in bringing them to the forefront of innovative retail operations.
