Siragon also designs and manufactures its own RAM and flash memory and printed circuit boards. The company was created in an alliance between Venezuelan and Japanese investors. Its manufacturing plants are located in the North Industrial Zone of Valencia.

Siragon products are manufactured in Venezuela. “At the cash register the cashier inquires for the mode of payment preferred by the customers in terms of cash/debit card/ credit card, for example. With iVend Retail such information is now included in the details of the sale, along with information such as the date of sale; POS ID; cashier in charge and sales person; customer service benefits, such as promotions and discounts; and mode of delivery, such as home delivery or customer pick up. If the customer chooses home delivery, the software automatically schedules a delivery and prints a delivery note” Siragon is a multifaceted conglomerate with a vast base of manufacturing & distribution of electronics goods that include Digital cameras, Video cameras, Desktop computers, Laptop computers, Netbooks, Computer servers, LCD televisions and monitors, LED television, Plasma TV screens, Sound systems, Peripherals. In keeping with its growth strategy, Siragon ventured into the retail business in the electronics sector with , a one-stop shop for specialty electronic products, to cater to the region with a unique range of high end electronic brands and products. Business Challenge Siragon wanted to take advantage of the latest retail technology in order to offer its customers the most efficient and streamlined purchasing experience, with a focus on fast, effective, and efficient service to each customer and a unique product mix. In addition, the company needed a scalable solution to support its aggressive expansion plans. Siragon understood the benefits of automated and integrated front- and backoffice operations. Executives conducted an evaluation process, comparing their business requirements for purchasing, inventory, merchandise and assortment planning, and point of sale (POS) to software offered by CitiXsys as well as other vendors. The CitiXsys Retail solution portfolio and related retail-specific applications, such as the iVend Point-of-Sale and Back-Office application, met the group's technology and expansion requirements. Since the project was starting from scratch, planning had to be precise, keeping in view both the existing business and future business plans of the company. The project was managed by Siragon and CitiXsys teams, using both offshore and onsite models. Ÿ This was a “greenfield” project, involving information technology, POS, Mobile devices, and integration from the store to the back office. In addition, iVend Retail and the SAP for Retail solution portfolio were implemented for the first time in Venezuela. As a further challenge, the project had to be completed in time for the scheduled opening of the first store.

Siragon Customer Case Study Contact Us The Solution For Siragon, providing a superior shopping experience is the most important objective. Each customer enjoys a consistent retail experience because Siragon's software solutions are all integrated, from kiosks in the store to cash registers to return points. In addition, home-delivery functions enable employees to monitor compliance to the delivery schedules committed with the customers. To enhance sales and improve customer service, the company implemented mobile POS terminals, which store staff can use to scan the merchandise in a customer's shopping cart. This speeds up the check-out process and keeps queues to a minimum, especially during rush hour. Customers do not have to stand in queues, because the order ticket generation is done using mobile devices; only payment has to take place at the cash registers. In addition to the regular sales transactions, using iVend, Store employees can use sales executive points situated in the store to check stock position and other information and create sales orders that are automatically sent to SAP Retail for further processing. Using mobile devices, warehouse and store workers simply scan the bar codes on merchandise instead of reading and then manually jotting down the information. This makes the process faster and minimizes data entry errors. I-Vend retail management solution has advanced well in the Siragon setup. In addition to managing Point of Sale the software offered comprehensive functionality covering inventory control and tracking, purchase order management, pricing, sales and promotions, customer management and marketing, employee management and reporting. The integrated & centralized administration that's customizable as per Venezuelan retail requirement was of prime importance. The implementation of the I-vend was easy too the product has great user adoption and the process flows well with the integration from SAP Business One to the stores & vice Versa. The new system does not suffer any data delays & connection drops between Main server & stores and has proved quite resilient & stable.
