In the fast-paced, agile retail environment, cloud computing is a real
attempt for retailers to move at the speed of consumers’ evolving wants
and needs. Cloud-based technologies are rapidly shifting the retail
industry, with cloud deployment ranking as the key driver for e-commerce
Sensormatic Solutions’ TrueVUE Inventory Intelligence solution suite
provides a secure global infrastructure capable of supporting massive
scale and high performance standards. It’s designed to optimize customer
engagement by capturing real-time inventory information across all
touchpoints and events along the customer purchase journey. TrueVUE
Cloud is available in several packages that are easy to step up or add
on as business needs evolve.
Built as an extensible API-first design, TrueVUE helps simplify
integration with an easy to use interface and intuitive user experience.
Retailers gain improved visibility into real-time inventory information,
which is the foundation of today’s world of unified commerce.
RFID-enabled cycle counting, interactive restocking and inventory
analytics help retailers know exactly what merchandise is available on
the sales floor, stock room and other zones for efficient unified
commerce execution and a frictionless shopper experience.
One of the key TrueVUE packages include out-of-box support for buy
online, pickup in store (BOPIS) tasks through automatic order
notification, picking and fulfillment features that allow customers to
shop anywhere, anytime. Results from these features provide both an
online and in-store shopping experience to drive sales conversion
through reliable and accessible merchandise inventory visibility.
Retailers can specify precise inventory outcomes through TrueVUE’s
unique Item Label and Recipe configuration options. These features not
only allow retailers to identify items for restocking, but also to
reserve certain items from their available inventory. TrueVUE can notify
and guide associates to comply with retailers’ inventory standards
depending on their unique merchandising and display requirements.
“Today’s retailers no longer rely on separate channels and processes to
facilitate customer shopping journeys. Unified commerce requires a
single set of data that can be shared in real-time and is accessible to
retailers anytime, anywhere,” said Brent Brown, vice president and
general manager, Global Inventory Intelligence, Sensormatic Solutions.
“Real-time merchandise visibility and availability is the key to both a
successful shopper journey and operational efficiency—and an ultimate
sales driver. The TrueVUE SaaS offering is already helping retailers
maintain inventory accuracy up to 99 percent via agile and easily
scalable processes. The value of accuracy allows our customers to
deliver on their brand promise by enabling key initiatives such as
BOPIS, with precision.”
