Sirit and Reva Systems announced at the beginning of last week that METRO Group is deploying Sirit’s INfinity 510 UHF RFID reader and Reva’s TAP 331 appliance as part of the recently announced expanded rollout at METRO Group’s Real brand hypermarket stores. The 200 Real locations will be equipped with Checkpoint portals powered by Sirit readers at the loading doors to track incoming goods. Reva’s RFID network infrastructure will be installed at each location to provide device management and data processing.

The Sirit readers will be used to track pallets and cases as they arrive at the stores to improve supply chain efficiency. Reva’s appliances will be used to manage the distributed network of RFID installations, to produce accurate data from each site, and to provide rapid operator feedback during logistics operations. This 200-location rollout builds on last October’s successful implementation.
