S4GV referenced in Gartner's RFID research

news gartner rfid

S4GV is referenced in latest Gartner's Hype Cycle for Consumer Goods, 2017 as one of the representative vendors in the "RFID for Logistics and Transportation" space.

Gartner's paper states: "RFID will be a key enabling technology used to support the Internet of Things (IoT) in supply chain execution (SCE). Numerous RFID applications have been hyped for inventory management that are being limited by the cost of implementation. However, RFID and similar sensory technologies are emerging for separate applications as strong asset management tools, with the ability to collect information about an asset as it moves through the supply chain and provide asset location visibility.". The authors then continue: "The vision for RFID has evolved away from a replacement for bar codes, to places where it could offer unique benefits. The potential exists for RFID to be transformational, as unique and highly valuable solutions emerge."

"We are very pleased to be referenced again in Gartner's research and be listed as part of a short number of relevant vendors in the market" says Andrej Sobkowski, Director of Product and Partner Development at S4GV. "The RFID technology has been deployed in production environments for very large industrial contexts and, with low costs of tags and readers, its benefits are now available to basically all industries wanting to further optimize their supply chain operations."

François Pilloud, S4GV's CTO, adds "we've built RFID serialization as part of the core native features of the S4GV Platform which make RFID available in all our solutions and in particular our RFID Warehousing & Logistics and Asset Management solutions; our customers can immediately benefit from RFID's capabilities such as (1) the ability to read large quantities of tags at high-speed without line of sight, (2) performing very fast inventories - in a matter of hours rather than days or weeks, (3) improved inbound accuracy when receiving goods and (4) optimized outbound operations at shipping verification. The S4GV Platform glues everything together by providing full end-to-end traceability and visibility on a multi-site multi-actor Supply Chain's execution."
