The retailers can easily connect or link that purchase to the RFID records and data and use it as market information. The market information results in giving a particular picture about the consumer movement through a store. The data can help make improvements in a store like optimizing a stores layout according to the consumer’s behavior.
Theft and shoplifting is a major concern for retail market owners. One option is to put a security person to keep an eye on customers closely.
