Temera & Launchmetrics: Bring sample management to the next level
RFID technology at the service of PR activities
Temera inks partnership with Launchmetrics to create the industry’s most efficient RFID sample management solution
Launchmetrics, market leader in the management and monitoring of send-out sample items, Temera IoT Leader for the Fashion & Luxury world, merge expertises to offer Sample platform integrated with Temera's RfId technologies, increasing the potential of the services provided by both companies.
As brands seek to reduce waste, become more sustainable and cut losses, RFID technology introduces a seamless way for brands to help optimize product management processes all while minimizing their footprint
Through their collaboration, Launchmetrics and Temera will offer Fashion's most efficient RFID sample management solution to help brands streamline their sample management processes, while integrating directly with their ERP, PLM, DAM systems. In the partnership, Temera will be in charge of the product traceability process; next-generation antennas and gates will be installed in warehouses, showrooms, etc, granting real-time tracking capabilities.
In today’s climate and as brands are seeking areas to reduce waste, become more sustainable and cut losses, they’re turning to digital solutions to help increase their efficiency and optimize their processes. When fashion companies scale to the point that they begin lending samples across the globe, there’s a high risk of losing these valuable brand assets. Luckily, sample management and tracking software, which use RFID tags, can control exactly which products have left the showroom, where they are, if they’re on their way back to the studio or if they’ve been misplaced. Because of RFID sample tracking, fashion companies have reportedly experienced up to 85% reduction in sample loss.
Thanks to this unique partnership between Launchmetrics and Temera, brands will:
- Increase their time to market, while saving on data integration costs
- Gain control of their valuable prototype, sample, and product assets from day one
- Have real time visibility of product movements, on a global scale, direct from production
- Reduce bottlenecks in operational processes through more accurate data integrations, by connecting directly their ERP, PLM and DAM systems.
- Reduce their carbon footprint as well as their overall number of shipments and samples movements due to an increased efficiency and maximization of product needs.
- Have access to trusted partners who will work together to provide the data, technical support and know-how to get the job done
Temera will manage the design and structuring of the traceability process, installing the latest generation antennas and gates in the brand warehouses and in the various destinations, capable of automating flows and simultaneously detecting any information contained in the sample tags.
In this way, in addition to the send-out, it will be possible to map in real time the movements of the samples between the company offices, towards exhibition and promotional events, influencers or media.
