The Russian footwear retail chain CenterObuv has entered into an agreement with the Retail Branding and Information Solutions (RBIS) division of Avery Dennison to implement the first pilot project to use RFID technology in the retail trade of footwear and apparel in Russia.

Thanks to this innovative technology, we can review our entire range, which exceeds 2500 items, and better satisfy the needs of our customers. After the pilot launch, we will consider using this solution in all our stores. "
