Floor Ready Merchandise

FRM© - The system of preparing goods for retail through performing value adding processes such as barcoding, price marking, placing apparel on hangers, security tagging, and using scanning technology to create electronic invoices. This reduces overall supply chain costs and minimises manual handling.

Through these electronic processes, goods are placed on the shop floor quickly, thereby improving service levels to the retailers and their customers, with minimal work being performed by the retailer’s employees.
