Tesco, HP Adds Merchandise Tracking System

Hewlett-Packard and Tesco implement OATSystems' Asset Tracking and Work-in-Process software. Both retailers will improve asset visibility and utilization, enhance work-in-process manufacturing, increase supply chain efficiencies, reduce shrink and error-proof deliveries. The retailers also will use the software's graphical tooling to quickly create, modify and adapt processing to meet specific needs. Both retailers will integrate data from heterogeneous tag sources including passive, active and sensory tags. This integration gives retailers visibility into inventory and asset movement throughout operations and manufacturing processes from geographically dispersed facilities and across various trading partners.
