Bringing greater operational efficiency and channelling time for staff for value-adding activities


Singapore, February 16, 2016 – SATO (TOKYO:6287), a global provider of Auto-ID solutions that empower workforces and streamline operations today announced that it supported the implementation of an RFID inventory and stock-taking system for Decks, one of the leading fashion retailers and apparel suppliers in Singapore.

Before implementing the RFID system, Decks spent up to 600 worker-hours for its annual stock-taking with 88% accuracy. To help Decks achieve greater efficiency and accuracy, SATO recommended Decks adopt an RFID inventory system which involved tagging apparel with RFID labels, scanning incoming and outgoing items through an RFID enclosure making stock-taking a breeze with the sweep of a mobile RFID scanner. With this new system, Decks is now able to complete its annual stock-taking in five worker-hours with 99.8% accuracy.

Decks was also hailed as an example for the retail sector at the launch of the Retail Sectoral Manpower Plan (SMP)* by the Singapore Minister for Manpower, Mr. Lim Swee Say. Regarding the labor savings for stock-taking, Mr. Lim said, “Today’s visit to Decks retail shop is an eye-opener for me. They have improved business outcomes for their company to create better jobs for Singaporeans and made their careers more meaningful.”
