Porto — August 3, 2020

Retail Consult, a highly specialized consulting group focused on technology solutions for retail, delivers a production Oracle Retail Solution for Farmatodo with a 100% remote project model.  Retail Consult provides remote project capabilities for clients to continue Oracle Retail projects in the pandemic economy. With a remote model, clients are realizing cost savings and increased productivity through reduced travel expenses, reduced commute and travel time, and an increase in focused work time.      

Since 2017, Retail Consult (RC) has been working with Farmatodo, a leading South American self-service chain of pharmacies, on an Oracle Retail transformation project to install Merchandising, Promotions, Sales Audit, Inventory Management, Allocations, Warehouse Management, Store Inventory Management, Xstore, and Retail Insights. The scope included operations in Venezuela and Colombia with an RC project team that was a mix of onsite and remote project teams. 

Angelo Cirillo, the CIO of Farmatodo said, “Retail Consult worked with us to create a remote project for our Oracle Retail implementation in Venezuela. Even with a 5-hour time zone difference, we were able to successfully move the project forward.” He added, “the proof was the successful deployment of the Xstore solution to production in March.” During the pandemic shutdown, both the Farmatodo and Retail Consult teams had to work remotely. Even with this challenge, the team was able to successfully complete the migration of several stores.  Angel Cirillilo concluded, “the Retail Consult team was a key element of our success.”

Klaus Sentker, Senior Partner and Chairman of the Board, Retail Consult says,” Retail Consult is a global company serving clients across many geographies and time zones.  We have a lot of experience working with a mix of on-site and off-site project teams.  For RC working remotely is a normal part of doing business. We are confident we can help our clients to move these mission-critical projects forward during the pandemic shutdown.” Klaus added, “I believe many clients will be working in some form of a remote project model for months as the pandemic plays out.”
