SATO joins Acuitas Digital Alliance for supply chain

Feb '16
SATO Global Solutions, global leader in auto-ID solutions, has joined the newly formed Acuitas Digital Alliance, bringing together like-minded technology innovators determined to bring the full benefits of the new digital era across the entire supply chain, all the way to the physical locations where customers do business.

The Acuitas Digital Alliance demonstrated its first solution, BT In-Store Visibility, at Retail's BIG Show, the National Retail Federation's annual conference, with technology provider Intel and fellow alliance founders NexGen Packaging, RetailNext, and SATO Global Solutions.

The Acuitas Digital Alliance is a first of its kind endeavour focused on providing a secure, cloud-based and future proof solution for businesses that want to take real-time advantage of big data and the Internet of Things to optimise operations throughout their entire supply chain while better engaging with their end customers.

The digital alliance brings together leaders specialising in networking, hardware, software, analytics, content management, security and cloud services to integrate a wide range of technologies, such as IoT sensors, software and analytics, into a single comprehensive solution.

This will allow organizations to optimise supply chain efficiencies, improve employee performance, cut waste and better manage compliance requirements. This will also help predict customer behaviour and create a great experience for consumers, including in physical locations such as stores, according to a press release.

BT in-store visibility will be the first solution developed by the Acuitas Digital Alliance and addresses the needs of retailers who want to bring their physical stores up to the same level of ease and quality of experience for customers and staff as their online outlets. This also allows them to ensure consistency across all their sales channels. Existing IT solutions simply do not deliver the comprehensive real-time functionality, data and insights needed for that type of 'digital' in-store experience. It's one of the fundamental problems that the Acuitas Digital Alliance is focused on resolving. (GK)
