Valid presents innovations in solutions for logistics management and tracking, payment and data analytics for retail





Valid’s location at the fair will be a sort of “Store of the Future,” showcasing new methods of interaction and consumer experience in the purchasing environment. One of the features is RFID technology (radio-frequency identification), applied to different products. Used by major national retailers, Valid’s solution manages all stages of the process, from the production of components to the sale of the final product in stores, with the ability to monitor each unit. The company handles everything from the design of the antennas and the production of the smart sticker, to the electronic readers, equipment installation, training, software, and, most importantly, the management and analysis of the data generated.

“We are talking about solutions that can reduce the cost and inventory time of the merchandise in the stores, and provide gains in logistical processes for the client,” explains Valid’s Adriano Franki. “Valid has been investing in the application of Data Analytics in its different fields of expertise, and in tracking solutions it is no different: we see the enormous value we can offer to our clients, especially in retail.”

Another innovation from Valid is the capability to analyze client traffic in stores, in a simple and efficient way. Having access to the analysis of this information is one of the great triumphs in assisting a retail chain in strategic decision-making for the growth of their business.

In the area of payment methods, the newest items are wearables; case studies will be presented on wristbands used for payment. These devices work using via NFC, or near-field communication technology, which enables the exchange of encrypted data with the POS machine. In Brazil, there are already around 2.8 million of these machines in operation.

“Payment methods are changing and the wristband technology offers an easier, safer and fast experience,” points out Adriano.

Valid’s identification and tracking solutions increase hospital safety





During the symposium, the company will introduce ID Arsenal, its instrument identification solution that uses software equipped with stainless steel armored nanocircuits to manage the Supply and Sterilization Center. The RFID nanocircuits, which use radio frequency identification, are compatible with all hospital sterilization processes and can withstand extreme conditions of long-term use. With Valid’s solution, the process of registering and tracking surgical instruments is fully automated and meets the standards of the National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA – Agência Nacional de Vigilância Sanitária) and the regulations of the World Health Organization (WHO).

Symposium participants will also learn about the medical equipment control solution. The RFID Smart Labels can store any type of information about the item, communicating it to the reader. With these, inventory data is always updated and ready for retrieval.

According to Andriano Franki, the Commercial Superintendent of Payment Methods at Valid, the technology is capable of reducing spending, improving operating room release time and increasing patient safety. Franki also notes that another major benefit of the RFID system is that the instruments can be equipped with the chips in the factory, further expediting the process.
