Sensormatic Solutions and Allbirds Collaborate With Inventory Intelligence Solutions for Item-Level Accuracy From Warehouse to Store

  • Leverages inventory intelligence solutions to improve supply chain management, track item-level inventory and enhance the shopper experience
  • Sensormatic Solutions to showcase its comprehensive retail solution portfolio at the 2024 NRF Big Show

Sensormatic Solutions, the leading global retail solutions portfolio of Johnson Controls, and Allbirds, Inc., a global lifestyle brand that innovates with naturally derived materials to make better footwear and apparel products in a better way, today announced their successful collaboration enhancing Allbirds’ customer experience with radio frequency identification (RFID)-enabled inventory accuracy. The footwear brand selected Sensormatic’s inventory intelligence solution to help improve item-level inventory tracking between warehouses and stores and enable future omnichannel execution.

“At Allbirds, our priority is our customers, ensuring they have the best possible shopping experience by meeting them where they are and how or when they want to shop. As such, we’ve continued to focus on bolstering our business with the latest technologies,” said Micah Nelson, director of product management, at Allbirds. “Our collaboration with Sensormatic Solutions and its customer and user-centric applications was a natural choice for this pursuit. Operational accuracy allows us to make decisions, so we focus on what matters most: our shoppers.”

Since the initiation of the collaboration in 2022, Sensormatic Solutions has helped Allbirds:

  • Achieve up to 99% inventory accuracy in the retail stores where solutions have been launched in the United States.
  • Reduce overall in-store inventory through reliable just-in-time supply chain management.

Sensormatic Solutions Supply Chain Visibility, a robust RFID cloud-based inventory management system, is helping Allbirds achieve these results. This enterprise-wide system helps Allbirds track product movement from warehouse to store to streamline merchandising programs, coordinate short-range deliveries, and support associates on the floor.

“Allbirds is a leader in innovation and laser-focused on implementing new technologies for retail precision,” said Frank Cho, vice president and product general manager of inventory Intelligence at Sensormatic Solutions. “Rolling out a major initiative, like this one, is a testament to their commitment to their shoppers and eye towards the future. We are proud to support Allbirds by helping provide inventory accuracy which makes for smoother operations that ultimately benefit the employees and end-consumers.”

Sensormatic Solutions leverages the latest technologies, such as Google Cloud’s BigQuery, to provide item-level inventory visibility and an enhanced customer experience delivering greater operational insights for Allbirds. The footwear seller, which makes sustainability central to its operations, began as a direct-to-consumer outfit in 2014 before opening its first brick-and-mortar store in 2018.
