VGB Group to Deploy RFID at Its 120 Siberian and Crawford Stores

The company's decision follows its successful implementation of EPC Gen 2 technology in its Memove chain, launched last October.

Due to the progressive use of information technology within its stores, including new processes with RFID, VGB is strengthening its technology infrastructure as a whole, Santangelo says, including within its back office. "Due to the strong expansion of chain stores, with new units, we are upgrading our entire data center," he reports.

"VGB Group believes that technology brings business benefits," Santangelo states. "So the project was born with a vision that RFID technology should be planned to bring gains to the business. We have carried several analyses about what we can still improve with RFID—such as security, for example."

Not every phase of the RFID implementation can be completed at the speed or cost that businesses expect, Santangelo notes, adding that enabling a project to proceed more quickly, for example, can drive up costs. "RFID, for Memove, has been a business differentiator," he says. "This differentiator has given it an advantage over the competition."

"We have a group of IT business analysts who work with ERP [enterprise resource planning]," Santangelo says. "When our ERP does not have a tool that we need, our people will develop and integrate it."
