DESIGN THE Intuitive Store

HOW CAN TECHNOLOGY HELP RETAILERS PUT SHOPPERS FIRST?

Today, people expect the convenience, speed and flexibility of shopping online. How can brick-and-mortar stores deliver on the same digital promise? Current builds the digital energy and data infrastructure to give retailers a 360° view of the shopping experience—and revolutionizes the way they serve their customers.

Lighting the way

From shopping malls to supermarkets, retailers have major energy needs. We can equip LEDs to respond to environmental data, so store locations use lighting only when they’re open for business. Or install energy storage and solar solutions at distribution centers to ensure they can keep running 24/7. Because we know that savings and sustainability are driving the future of commerce.

Real-time service

How do you keep employees, shoppers and merchandise moving seamlessly through a store? Our intelligent systems let retailers respond to real-time data in their stores. Like when shoppers are coming through the doors. Where sales staff are needed most on the floor. Or which items should be restocked. That means customers can find and buy just what they want, when they want it—and will keep coming back.

Connected commerce

Big data analytics, powered by our cloud-based Predix platform, can drive big revenue by helping retailers anticipate what customers need next. When stores across the map share one data infrastructure, everybody wins; your organization can boost efficiency and innovation globally, while tailoring each location to serve customers locally.
