MARC O'POLO stands for a casual lifestyle with high standards. Characteristic of the brand with Swedish roots is its preference for natural materials. MARC O'POLO's liberal philosophy has stood for the claim to remain true to oneself in everything one does since 1967.

The MARC O'POLO World comprises the collections MARC O'POLO Modern Casual, MARC O'POLO DENIM, MARC O'POLO Shoes and MARC O'POLO Accessories as well as the licences Beachwear, Bodywear, Eyewear, Home, Junior and Legwear.

MARC O'POLO was already working successfully with INTEX's ERP system before adding an add-on - the RFID module - to introduce a new sorting system. INTEX needed to integrate this sender-receiver system to automatically locate and identify objects in the logistics and retail sectors.
With the implementation of RFID the communication between the different systems should be optimized by the introduction of uniform interfaces. RFID should provide greater transparency and more effective control, both at delivery and receipt of goods.
Through the implementation of RFID, the INTEX Professional software could be used for packing stations and goods receiving stations. The interfaces worked via web service methods and direct communication with external systems within the INTEX environment was also made possible.
Thanks to RFID, MARC O'POLO has recorded positive developments such as improved delivery quality, improved incoming goods control and a significant increase in picking performance. The reduction of the error rate and the return rate are also rated as positive.
