Today’s fast-paced retail requires stores to keep up with consumer demand for popular brands and specific fast-moving SKUs. While many Internet of Things (IoT) platforms promote dashboards and inventory insights, Checkpoint Systems’HALO® platform is uniquely differentiated by its intelligent, action-centric functions. It’s all about action.
“HALO auto-generates associate alerts throughout the supply chain and in-store, driving improved productivity in receiving, back stocking, and restocking high-demand products to capture maximum sales conversions and highest profit margins,” said Phil Fisher, product manager, HALO. Checkpoint’s global retail customers are profiting from fifty years of retail experience. HALO reportedly facilitates maximum efficiency in minimum time by expediting shipping and receiving processes at every step in the supply chain.
How does it work?
The HALO platform captures data events from every connected sensor across a retailer’s supply chain. This data is then stored, processed, and analyzed in near real-time to deliver targeted, actionable insights viewed via the HALO portal and intelligent actions delivered directly to associates’ mobile devices. This enables users to view relevant key events, make well-informed decisions, and drive tasks that will improve processes and increase performance. Organizational tasks and mobile task alerts can be generated automatically, using machine learning and artificial intelligence, or by manual input.
