How it works

Inventory Optimization solution infographic

The Inventory Optimization solution helps your retail company adapt to market trends and demands by taking an intelligent, granular look at inventory.

With Internet of Things (IoT) integration, racks, shelves, and coolers send data immediately to the cloud. This improves your inventory management system with up-to-the-minute accuracy on stocking, so you can make quick decisions while viewing sales performance at a macro level.

Drawing on your own enterprise resource planning (ERP) data and Microsoft Cloud Technology, the solution enables you to more accurately predict the optimal SKU assortment for each store, streamlining product selection.
