RFID handheld readers vs. fixed readers
The !D Cloud software platform supports various RFID handheld and fixed (overhead) RFID readers which offer you maximum flexibility.

Handheld reader solution
Optimize the stock accuracy with weekly counts
Using !D Cloud with RFID handheld readers is the perfect starting point to raise your in-store stock accuracy through weekly counts. Taking inventory fast, often and accurately enables you to gain an understanding of your actual stock. Any empty shelves can be replenished and any causes of stock differences, through losses or administrative errors, can be identified and dealt with more quickly. All you need is an RFID handheld reader and a mobile device.
Fixed reader solution
Continuously count in-store inventory
Using !D Cloud with fixed (overhead) RFID readers is an ideal next step if you require to collect the exact location of each item. Fixed overhead readers continuously count and reconcile the in-store inventory. This is an ideal solution if your shoes are for example spread throughout several departments on different levels and not only in the shoe department. In that case, RFID overhead readers can offer you the much needed insight into the exact location of your merchandise or provide you with up-to-date refill suggestions.
