Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc.

Foothill Ranch, CA, September 27, 2016Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc.Open a new window, a leader in innovative technology and front-end solutions has announced today that on-line formal wear rental leader, The Black TuxOpen a new window, has implemented Fujitsu’s new washable UHF RFID Fashion tag as well as Fujitsu’s rugged Linen tag to reduce garment processing time and improve order accuracy. Additionally, integrating RFID tracking into their order management process helps their customers get faster delivery of formal wear and accessories while reducing internal handling and administrative costs.
The Fujitsu RFID tags allow warehouse personnel to quickly and accurately configure an order with the precise item styles, colors, and sizes. Packed orders are then verified before shipping by reading the contents of the final shipping box without ever having to touch the items in the box.  No more shipping the wrong color tie or 2 left shoes to a waiting customer. Returned orders are immediately scanned as soon as they are received so The Black Tux can provide fast and accurate accounting of returned items which reduces the chances of lost items due to inaccurate manual sorting and scanning with traditional bar code readers. Customer orders can be quickly closed and the need for unnecessary customer contact for lost items is eliminated.
“We have created an entirely new tuxedo rental model which guarantees both fast and accurate delivery of tuxedos and formal wear to our customers”, said Patrick Coyne co-CEO of The Black Tux. “Using the Fujitsu RFID tags helps us to process our orders faster and more accurately, while reducing labor costs. We can also speed processing of returned orders to ensure immediate and accurate accounting of all returned items. Our customers really appreciate the speedy delivery of their formal wear as well as the simple and easy returns completion process.”
The Fujitsu washable RFID tags are so small that they are virtually imperceptible when installed in fashion and formal wear. The new WT-A522L Fashion tag, which is Fujitsu’s thinnest tag, is made from transparent materials, allowing it to be sewn into any tie, sheer fabric, accessory, or inserted into shoes. The Fashion tag is home wash, dry-clean, and ironing safe. The rugged WT-A533 Linen tag is designed to survive hundreds of washings under very harsh industrial washing conditions.
“The Black Tux represents a new and exciting business model in the world of fashion rental.  Using our Fashion and Linen RFID tags allows them to process orders quickly and accurately, while reducing labor costs”, said Randy Fox, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. “It has been a pleasure to work with The Black Tux on this new business segment”.
