Vibholm is a fast-growing jewelry chain with many stores throughout Denmark and web stores in several countries. As a growth company, it is important for Vibholm to optimize the usage of resources, while at the same time ensuring excellent customer experiences.
Counted 95% of the items in an hour and a half
When Vibholm completed the first inventory count with the RFID solution, it only took one employee an hour and a half to count 95% of all the items in the store. This would have previously taken the inventory counting team 2 or 3 days; and with a much lower precision, and data that quickly became obsolete.
This is why CEO, Tenna Vibholm, decided to roll out RFID in all stores. The solution is fully integrated with Vibholm’s ERP system. And as it is a cloud solution, managers can always access the data and analyze what they need. Vibholm already had a long-standing relationship with NaviPartner as a supplier of POS and ERP solutions. And after a demonstration of the WMS and RFID solution, Tenna Vibholm could see that there was an opportunity to leverage the potential RFID has in streamlining warehousing processes.
“It all works fantastically well – as retailers we always focus on ROI, and with the warehouse precision we achieve, the solution pays off in a short time after it has been implemented in a store. Therefore, I can say that right now is the right time to get started taking advantage of the opportunities that RFID provides.”

Inventory with RFID supports growth strategy
Vibholm is a fast-growing jewelry chain with many stores throughout Denmark and web stores in several countries. As a growth company, it is important for the jewelry chain to optimize the usage of resources, while at the same time ensuring excellent customer experiences.
Customers expect to be able to shop with Vibholm 24/7. They also expect to have access to the full product range, whether they buy online or in physical stores. Therefore, the jewelry chain has a virtual warehouse that draws directly on data from the main warehouse, from the stores, and from the supplier warehouse.
“The solution is very simple and user-friendly, so it is super easy to train new employees.
We use a lightweight RFID reader along with an app on the smartphone, and new colleagues can get started in minutes.”
