DOVER, N.H. — Zander Livingston, CEO of Truecount Corp, an RFID software provider, announced that Truecount is introducing a new Software as a Service (SaaS) pricing and deployment model that places inventory visibility and all other RFID benefits within the reach of any size retailer.
Truecount’s SaaS offering combines modest set-up costs with a low monthly fee, substantially reducing the upfront investment traditionally associated with RFID implementations. With hardware costs and licensing fees a constraint for some retailers, the SaaS option provides affordability and flexibility for companies who are considering a RFID pilot or network wide roll-out.
According to Livingston, Truecount’s SaaS model enables small and mid-sized firms to enjoy the same advantages of item level RFID as the retail “giants” without significant investment. “Retailers who utilize Item-level RFID technology in their stores and in their supply chain gain many efficiencies based on faster inventory counts and greater inventory accuracy. This gives these retailers a definite competitive edge in their marketplace,” says Livingston. “We are leveling the playing field. Now, mid-sized and smaller firms can accelerate their implementation of RFID and begin accruing the same market advantages as the biggest retail brands.”
