Impinj launched Tuesday its IoT Connector for SAP Hybris Commerce that connects RAIN RFID infrastructure to the SAP solution to deliver accurate, real-time inventory data. This data can help retailers make better inventory and supply-chain decisions that result in fewer markdowns, reduced inventory and improved shopper experiences online and in-store.
The Impinj IoT Connector for SAP Hybris Commerce allows retailers to enable effective online and in-store fulfillment, and reduce inventory, through improved order-routing decisions; sell inventory down to the last item, resulting in fewer markdowns; reduce the risk of overpromising items by using accurate available-to-promise data; deliver integrated omnichannel experience that can facilitate a sales uplift and improve shopper experiences; and reduce working capital by removing safety stock.
SAP Hybris Commerce provides retailers with omnichannel customer engagement and commerce solutions that deliver a more impactful, relevant customer experience and increase sales across multiple channels.
The Impinj IoT Connector integrates RAIN RFID data into the SAP Hybris Commerce solution, enabling a retail IoT strategy. With this solution, retailers can know where every item is at any point in time. Integrating RAIN RFID data means retailers spend less time accounting for items in-store, find items more quickly, and have a complete picture of real-time inventory for any product.
“Access to accurate real-time inventory data has been a key challenge for retailers. Lack of inventory data or inaccurate inventory data prevents retailers from fully leveraging omnichannel opportunities. Utilizing the Impinj IoT Connector, we are combining the power of the Impinj IoT Connector and the SAP Hybris Commerce solution, delivering a range of benefits that help retailers optimize their store operations,” said Larry Arnstein, Impinj Vice President of Business Development. “SAP is a leader in commerce and omnichannel software, and we’re excited about how the pairing of our platform and SAP Hybris software will create a transformative solution for the retail market.”
