Give Brick-and-Mortar Retail the Edge of Digital Insight

Background

Embedded sensors are changing the way retailers manage merchandise and learn about their customers. By combining RFID tags with a smart platform, brick-and-mortar retail stores can revolutionize inventory tracking, collect in-depth intelligence on customer behavior and preferences, and dramatically reduce losses from misplaced items and inventory shrink. All this helps retailers deliver the best customer experiences and convert sales.

Solution

The Intel® Retail Sensor Platform can increase inventory accuracy to nearly 100 percent. The platform offers a simple, affordable way for retailers to gather actionable, near-real-time intelligence—saving money and converting more sales. It tracks items through RFID tags, preserving customer privacy while keeping sales staff informed on inventory, stocking, customer traffic, and local demand. It can reduce losses from misplaced or out-of-stock items, and inventory shrink. RFID data can also be combined with other data, such as video, and quickly analyzed to provide a cohesive portrait of store activity and customer preferences. Intel® Retail Sensor Platform components are easy to manage, integrate with existing store systems, and keep data secure.
