Tyco Retail Solutions Unveils TrueVUE 5.1 Software for RFID-Based Inventory Visibility

Empowers Retailers to Accelerate Large Scale RFID Enterprise-Wide Deployments

NEUHAUSEN, SWITZERLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 08/21/14 -- Tyco Retail Solutions (www.tycoretailsolutions.com), a leading global provider of retail performance and security solutions, today announced the release of TrueVUE 5.1, which further enhances its capabilities to accelerate large scale retail RFID deployments more cost effectively across all stores chain-wide. This version of TrueVUE facilitates centralized setup and control of inventory management to drive accuracy, visibility and operational efficiencies. In addition, the new features enable retailers to maximize existing investments in iOS devices for RFID inventory transactions and to support in-store mobility strategies. Through centralized system deployment and increased mobility, information is delivered from the enterprise to the stores, empowering personnel to easily access information anytime, anywhere, from any device.

Use of RFID technology in retail is gaining momentum as a critical IT enabler of a successful omni-channel strategy. RFID has proven to increase inventory accuracy up to 99% by enabling regular cycle counting to establish and maintain true merchandise quantities on hand and reliable inventory visibility. With v.5.1, Tyco continues to deliver capabilities that enable scalable, large retail deployments. The latest enhancements improve cycle counting and allow many more simultaneous users and inventory count sessions across all stores on a single centralized server. This further ensures accuracy and efficiency with all inventory counts, reducing data contention across large retail environments. Additional performance reporting provides insight into cycle counts for optimizing processes, employee productivity, and operational efficiency.

Tyco's latest TrueVUE enhancements also extend the value of mobile technologies in the store by expanding mobile RFID inventory management capabilities to drive efficiencies and empower store associates. The updated platform leverages retailers' existing investment in cost-effective iOS devices combined with add-on RFID readers, strengthening corporate in-store mobility strategic objectives. Additionally, a newly supported RFID sled reader is designed to communicate with a variety of host devices via Bluetooth wireless technology. The ready-made assemblies mount iOS devices on the reader, leveraging mobile devices already in use in the store such as an iPhone or iTouch.

"Designed to accelerate large scale deployments, TrueVUE v.5.1 helps retailers maximize their current investments in cloud and mobile technologies and seamlessly improve store efficiencies," said Nancy Chisholm, President, Tyco Retail Solutions. "Proven to increase inventory accuracy, decrease out-of-stocks, and amplify on-floor availability, RFID is quickly becoming a critical enabler for retail success today. With our strategic focus on RFID technology innovation, we continue advancing our solutions to help retailers' worldwide gain a competitive advantage and achieve store excellence."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
