Named as a finalist for RBTE Innovation Trail Awards and RFID Journal LIVE! Best New Product Award

Boca Raton, Florida, May 18, 2017 /India PRwire/ -- Tyco Retail Solutions (www.tycoretailsolutions.com) has been recognized for its innovative RFID Fitting Room solution, providing retailers with real-time, item-level detail on inventory in the fitting room -- the highest sales conversion area of the store. Retail Business Technology Expo (RBTE) 2017, Europe's largest retail solutions event, shortlisted Tyco's solution for the Innovation Trail Awards during the show in London from May 8-9. In addition, RFID Journal LIVE! 2017, the world's leading RFID conference, named Tyco as a finalist for the "Best New Product" award during the event in Phoenix, Arizona from May 9-11.

The Tyco Retail RFID Fitting Room is a combined solution of Tyco's RAIN RFID hardware, firmware and software products. Designed to deliver maximum business value to retailers, the primary focus is on driving fitting room sales conversion and the optimum shopping experience. Tyco's RFID Fitting Room, powered by Tyco's Beam Steerable RFID Antenna and multi-purpose RFID reader, provides retailers with visibility to item-level inventory in the fitting room, with additional insight into the stockroom and sales floor inventory to better service the customer, enhance the shopping experience and ultimately increase sales. Additional benefits are gained with loss prevention and store operational efficiencies as well.

The Tyco Retail RFID Fitting Room delivers real-time inventory insight in an unobtrusive way to best assist sales associates with customers, monitor the area to combat shrink, enable in-fitting-room merchandising and promotional opportunities, and generate fitting room merchandise activity and sales conversion statistics beneficial for analytical product performance reporting.

The RFID Fitting Room solution can be deployed with primary tier capabilities, and later with enhanced features for added value and more in-depth personalized customer service. The first tier solution is provided exclusively by Tyco Retail, while the premium enhanced tier is developed in collaboration with Accenture/ Kurt Salmon Digital for delivering the optimum high-touch customer experience.

"As e-commerce continues to thrive, retailers are challenged to make their stores relevant and drive shoppers back into brick & mortar. Differentiating and personalizing the shopping experience is one way to accomplish this and our new RFID Fitting Room enables retailers to deliver on the improved experience," said Brent Brown, vice president and general manager, Inventory Intelligence and IoT, Tyco Retail Solutions. "We're honored to have our solution recognized by RBTE and RFID Journal and the opportunity to have showcased our innovation at both industry-leading events."
