Mario Simán, president of Grupo Unicomer, is one of the prominent businessmen in the region who tested positive with Covid-19, although with mild symptoms. This did not prevent his push to spearhead a digital transformation process to link its retail emporium’s more than 1,100 stores across the continent. With this, the company that controls brands such as La Curacao, RadioShack, Servitotal, and others, will use the cloud and IA to link the processes with which it caters to the needs of more than 3 million consumers in 27 countries per year. According to Forbes, Simán leads the third-largest fortune in the region, with total assets of nearly US$1,7 billion.
