Integrated Retail Monitoring Solutions
Monitoring is a difficult business challenge for convenience store retailers. Retail stores have a combination of pre-prepared grab-and-go meals, medications and over-the-counter drugs, prescription medications, treatments, frozen foods, and refrigerated drinks. Likewise, fast food, coffee shops, and other food & beverage retail establishments have the same challenges. In all cases, there are many key stakeholders connected to the transportation and storage of these goods as they reach the end-retail sites, and there is a critical emphasis on environmental control and continuous environmental data logging for regulatory compliance. Retail stores must consider an investment in an integrated remote monitoring solution, one that combines data points from all respective temperature sensitive goods and consumer products, and aggregates them to extract valuable equipment, product, and potential spoilage insights to meet regulations.
One specific remote monitoring challenge within retail and convenience stores is the concept of severity, and how to properly triage environmental excursions at scale. Retails stores can take advantage of data-driven incident management systems to identify and quickly remedy high-severity events (total equipment failure - vaccines), while properly managing and patching up low-severity events (brief excursion - frozen food). The end result is better asset visibility, and an incident management system is the ideal digital paper trail system that meets CDC, VFC, BOP, and FDA regulations.
