We’ve posted our retail solutions paper to our Internet of Things resource center. The paper explores the challenges that retailers face, and considers how IoT solutions may address them.
It’s not a long read – only a few pages. But it will get you thinking.
To whet your appetite, here is the executive summary from the paper:
Whether it’s monitoring the supply chain, tracking and managing inventory, delivering personalized promotions, or enabling e-commerce from new environments, the retail Internet of Things (IoT) is ushering in an era in which “smart” things can seamlessly collect, share and analyze real-time data.
It’s generally accepted among industry insiders that the Internet of Things is likely the most effective retail tool since the advent of the bar code. To others, however, it’s a pervasive buzzword that is hard to pin down and define, and represents the potential for confusing, rather than enhancing the customer experience.
In the most basic terms, the Internet of Things is about low-cost computing technology that connects everything on the planet. It unifies person-to-person and machine-to-machine interactions and enables global data transfers, automatically, without the need for human intervention.
For retailers, it’s about how wireless connectivity can improve efficiency and margins, add value to the sales process, and improve service for the customer.
