Introduction

How can we help retailers?

We offer Edge cloud solutions which combine the benefits of cloud computing with the convenience of localized data storage and processing, making them ideal for retail environments.

Inventory

Real-Time Inventory Management

Edge cloud solutions allow retailers to track inventory levels in real-time. This data is crucial for managing stock levels, ensuring products are available when needed and preventing stockouts or overstocking. Automated inventory systems can use technologies like RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags or barcode scanners to update the inventory database instantly, providing accurate stock information.

POS

Point-of-Sale (POS) Systems

Retailers rely on POS systems to process customer transactions quickly and efficiently. Edge cloud solutions enable seamless integration of POS terminals with centralized databases, ensuring sales data and transaction information is instantly updated and synchronized across all terminals.

Loyalty

Customer Loyalty Programs

Many retailers offer customer loyalty programs to retain customers and gather valuable data. Edge cloud solutions can manage these programs, tracking customer purchases, analyzing buying patterns and providing personalized offers or discounts.

BI

Analytics and Business Intelligence

Edge cloud solutions enable retailers to analyze vast amounts of data generated by various store operations, including sales, customer behavior and inventory. By using analytics and business intelligence tools, supermarkets can gain valuable insights, make informed decisions and optimize their operations to enhance profitability.

The sheer amount of data generated can be highly expensive with hyperscalers.

Data

Local Data Processing

While the cloud offers many advantages, some applications may require low-latency data processing. With Edge cloud solutions, critical applications can process data locally, reducing dependency on internet connectivity and ensuring responsive systems.
