As the leading lifestyle retail conglomerate in Indonesia, PT MAP has the broadest retail network of malls and stores in Indonesia. The company employs more than 20,000 employees, and operates more than 2,000 retail stores in 69 cities.
PT MAP worked closely with ACS Group, aZebra Premier Solutions partner, to select a solution thatimproves staff productivity and inventory control throughout its supply chain by deploying the MC55 mobile computer and RFD5500 RFID sled at the front of store, and MC3200 mobile computer in the warehouse.
With the MC55, PT MAP has reported an increase in staff productivity, as well as better inventory control at its retail stores. Relying on barcode scanning, employees no longer perform manual updates or entries into the system when they replenish goods in the front of store from the back of the store – reducing the chance of stock-out or overstock, as the real-time visibility into inventory enables them to restock goods only when required.
PT MAP has also deployed RFID technology at their fashion outlets, pairing Zebra’s RFD5500 RFID sled with the MC55 mobile computer. Store associates can easily scan the location of items, read RFID data, and scan barcodes seamlessly. The efficiency and effectiveness of real-time tracking and tracing have driven time-savings for PT MAP employees, as well as to boost customer satisfaction as store associates are able to locate stock quickly and accurately.
Meanwhile, back at the warehouse, PT MAP’s employees can collect data accurately and quickly with the MC3200 at every stage of the supply chain.
