French lingerie brand RougeGorge
a leader in cloud-managed networking, to provide a flexible and secure
Wi-Fi solution for its 232 stores and headquarters. Founded in
1998, RougeGorge allows women to express their femininity however they
choose through affordable, creative and smart lingerie for every
occasion. The company is enjoying growing success, with an average of 20
new stores opening in France and Belgium every year.
In early 2016, RougeGorge started thinking about creating connected
stores, in line with its commitment to constantly improve customer
satisfaction, and needed a quick and easy Wi-Fi management solution.
Their new digital initiative was called the Connected Stores project.
“At RougeGorge, we strive to maintain close contact with our customers —
they really are at the heart of what we do and we’re keen to find the
best ways and tools to meet their needs,” said Thomas Clauw, IT systems
manager, RougeGorge. “Not a single Wi-Fi access point has failed in the
two years we’ve been working with Aerohive. The platform operates seven
days a week; it’s smooth, seamless and so intuitive you don’t have to be
an expert to use it.”
RougeGorge needed a solution for rolling out a dependable, secure and
remotely controllable Wi-Fi network across all of its 232 stores
and its head office in Wasquehal in northern France. The
Connected Stores project includes providing sales assistants with
lightweight, stylish smartphones to access the preferences of regular
customers, view the company’s complete catalogue and check stock status
onsite and at neighboring stores.
Aerohive offered a distinct edge over rival solutions, thanks to the
performance of its network, powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) and
Machine Learning (ML) capabilities. RougeGorge’s IT department was
impressed by its ease-of-use, the service life of the access points and
the cost of the solution, which were important criteria.
Another positive factor was Aerohive’s excellent relations with the
solution integrator Yourax, which was involved throughout the project
and is fully familiar with Aerohive solutions and their latest versions.
Aerohive and Yourax worked in close partnership and provided support
precisely tailored to RougeGorge’s requirements.
Aerohive has enabled RougeGorge to achieve its objectives with the
Connected Stores project. Aerohive’s applications and insights, powered
by AI and machine learning, allow RougeGorge to collect valuable
information and analytics about how customers spend their time in store.
All these benefits are helping RougeGorge constantly improve the
in-store advice and guidance it offers and exceed customer expectations.
