Russia’s largest retail group, X5 Group, completes supply of 30,000 M3 products to 4,600 shops nationwide





E5.RU. manages a mid-sized discount store brand called Pyaterochka, a supermarket brand called Perekrestok, a large distribution shop brand called Karusel, as well as several convenience stores, and online markets. Most people in Europe and in particular, Russia, will have heard of it or used one of their shops. All of the above stores belong to the “X5 Retail Group,” a representative group in the Russian retail market.


X5 manages a total of 4,618 stores in Moscow, St. Petersburg and other regions. It has also signed agreements with government agencies in regions, such as Moscow, Leningrad, and Tyumen, thus leading the modern distribution system of Russia. To aid them in their management, the group uses M3 products. “The larger the scale and the more stores we have to manage, the more that our clients eagerly demand a terminal exclusively optimized to the retail environment. As such, M3’s outstanding and stable performance, quality, and design customized to the retail market have been acknowledged by our clients. It has highly contributed to our business growth after its introduction,” said Ekaterina, a Russian partner company of M3. “I expect additional demand from other retail clients other than X5.”


Since 2009, the X5 Retail Group has used about 30,000 M3 MOBILE products, from M3 GREEN to M3 T. M3 T passed the 1.8 m drop test, boasting an IP65 protection rating. Furthermore, a patented ergonomic design has been applied to its scanning feature, which is highly popular in markets that need stock management and warehouses, such as distribution and retail shops.
