“Retail is detailed. The only way you can get detail is to get a lot of information at the SKU level,” comments Mr. Arun Samak, R&D Advisor PT Mitra Adiperkasa Tbk. As a retail conglomerate, PT Mitra Adiperkasa Tbk requires the best-in-class RFID system and wireless network to trace its products across the entire supply chain. While it uses its own software, PT Mitra Adiperkasa Tbk (MAP Group) has chosen to partner with ACS Group and Zebra Technologies for the past decade to increase its supply-chain visibility and transform its company.
Before using ACS and Zebra Technologies, many processes were manual. After the implementation of mobility and RFID solutions, MAP Group was able to automate both its warehouse and store-front operations. Among its IT transformation tools are mobile RFID readers that MAP Group bought from ACS that are being used in its fashion business. The benefit of RFID has positively affected MAP Group’s growth and the optimization of the operations.
“Zebra gives us real-time visibility and digital voice,” says Yudi Likang, IT SBU Division Manager of PT Mitra Adiperkasa Tbk. “A recent implementation is the RFD55 sled that transforms the MC55 mobile computer into a mobile RFID reader that delivers a wide read range and coverage area”. These tools are essential to MAP Group’s corporate strategy which aims to streamline its omnichannel business model.
