Connected retail cabinets

More control over your retail cabinets

We can help you to transform your retail display cabinets such as beverages coolers and freezers into connected, intelligent assets able to report their location, operational status and stock levels in real , offering more opportunities to streamline your operation.

The challenge of retail asset management

Retail companies spend millions – sometimes hundreds of millions – of euros investing in retail display cabinets for better product placement and improved quality. Cabinets are typically provided to stores free of charge with the promise that they will increase sales to cover the investment. You know that after the cabinets are delivered, the owner has very little visibility and control over these assets.

Owner doesn't typically know where the cabinets are at any given time due to unauthorized moves or even theft – resulting in reported 5-15% annual loss of assets

Cabinets are often switched off to save electricity, resulting in poor product quality e.g. warm beverage – this has a huge impact on product sales

Store manager uses the cabinet for competitor products, making the whole investment pointless for the owner – purity is a significant challenge especially for beverage companies

Even when assets are working, the ability to measure when stock needs replenishing is limited to 'after the event' reporting. This often means the assets sit idle until new stock arrives

Retail cabinets have huge potential, but because of the way they're managed, returns are not optimised
