In an era of heightened customer expectations and online shopping, retail site intelligence systems enable efficient store management and improve the customer experience. The retail sector is being transformed as game changing in-store technologies are integrated with business systems for point of sale, loyalty programs, staff allocation, inventory management, and distribution.
Intelligent retail stores provide safer and fresher products, better and faster service. Empowered customers benefit from better information, special offers, and increased autonomy, which leads to a faster shopping trip with a larger shopping basket size. At the same time, losses to theft and sweethearting are reduced, while business improvement programs reap the benefits of verifiable, site-specific data.
Standards-based and Secure
Store-level systems are built from the ground up to be cost-effective and to leverage powerful technologies like ZigBee® low-power wireless sensors and video analytics. Intelligent, retail-ready video management systems drive improvements in loss prevention, customer service, and operational efficiency.
Seamless, secure and flexible ZigBee® networks bring low-cost, long-lived, location-aware environmental sensors to every aisle of every store. Starting from mature ZigBee® standards established for energy and lighting systems makes it possible to expand the Internet of Things to include the retail sector.
