RAMP RFID helps BAKU Swimwear enjoy an endless summer
Leading Australian swimwear retailer BAKU relied on RAMP to deliver an RFID solution with complete, real-time visibility of stock throughout their entire supply chain and support their omni-channel strategy.
BAKU needed to prepare for an omni-channel future, including increasing online sales. At the same time, they wanted a system to help manage and count inventory more effectively and efficiently. RAMP implemented an integrated RFID solution to provide complete inventory visibility from manufacturing to warehouse to retail stores.
BAKU designs and manufactures three seasons a year. Variations include plains, prints, up to 20 styles as well as different colourways and sizes. This adds up to around 5,000 SKUs per year, and 20,000 SKUs are in the system at any one time.
The company needed more accurate inventory and stock counts through the entire supply chain to minimise out-of-stocks and maximise sales. BAKU also wanted the ability to increase online sales as part of their omni-channel strategy.
Stock and inventory management was a massive problem in the business. We needed to get a clearer, more accurate view of the stock we had on hand and where it was located.

Integrating RFID with a POS system
BAKU decided to implement RFID at the same time as they moved to a new POS system by Retail Express. RAMP integrates with a range of leading POS systems to provide a powerful and easy-to-use RFID inventory management system. Working closely together, RAMP and Retail Express have helped BAKU optimise inventory and purchase replenishment to maximise sales.
The RAMP RFID system makes inventory tracking infinitely better than before. Product moves rapidly through the supply chain and with our local manufacturing we can restock fast moving lines more quickly to maximise sales.
