SATO Global Solutions (SGS), an innovation integrator that develops comprehensive Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, has collaborated with Intel to develop a data-driven, end-to-end IoT platform that enables retailers to accelerate the commercial benefit of data and IoT with a new level of actionable insight.

The solution allows retailers to realise near 100 per cent inventory accuracy while boosting workforce efficiency. Additionally, it enables digital engagement applications to bring cutting edge and innovative retail experiences to consumers.

The platform seamlessly integrates a range of retail technologies including RFID readers that track individual items in the store, the ability to leverage additional sensors with the Intel retail sensor platform, a store-based gateway that gathers and filters data, a robust cloud platform and big data analytics. The SGS IoT platform integrates these components into a comprehensive retail solution that standardises the collection, storage, and analytics for store-based events involving inventory and customer interactions, according to a press release.

Designed to be future-proof and expandable, the solution leverages Intel's industry-standard, open-software platform. It will allow retailers to host a full-suite of retail applications by integrating other sensor technologies as well as third party data or applications to meet their unique demands.

Michael Beedles, president of SATO Global Solutions said, “Integrating near-real-time inventory data and customer data opens up new possibilities—allowing retailers to provide highly personalised and effective services to customers. This may include everything from offering extra discounts to loyal customers on overstocked items to using digital signage to push sales based on trending data from social media. We are excited to pioneer new products and services with Intel. As an 'Innovation Integrator,' SGS develops future-proof expandable platforms to leverage optimal technologies to address clients' needs.”

Joe Jensen, VP, Intel Internet of Things Group general manager, retail solutions division said, “By using the new Intel Retail Sensor Platform, SATO Global Solutions can help deliver simple, affordable, effective inventory tracking and insight for retailers to improve consumer experiences and reduce operating costs solutions.” (GK)
