The Internet of Things (IoT) unleashes valuable business insights through data that’s gathered at every level of a retail organization. With IoT and data analytics, retailers now have the capability to gather insight into customer behavior, offer more personalized experiences, achieve better inventory accuracy, create greater supply chain efficiencies, and so much more. But with data comes great risk. A recent report by security firm Thales and 451 Research found that 43 percent of retailers have experienced a data breach in the past year, with a third reporting more than one breach.1
Intel® technology-based gateways and Asavie, a provider of next-gen enterprise mobility management and IoT connectivity solutions, offer a security connectivity solution that minimizes the effort and cost to businesses to ensure safety from cybersecurity attacks.

The restaurant industry is buzzing about automation. With labor costs expected to double and consumer demand for a seamless checkout experience, many restaurants are looking at technologies that can automate tasks in the front-of-house. But there are back-of-house processes that have yet to be fully automated. While auto-counting your inventory may be a thing someday, it’s not here yet.
So if you can’t automate the inventory management process, you can at least use tools that automate its more cumbersome aspects. Maximum labor output, higher levels of accuracy, and better accountability are possible with a system that automates certain tasks and enable manager productivity for on-the-job success.
After reading this eBook, you’ll know:
• The many inefficiencies generated by manual, spreadsheet-based counting methods.
• The innovations being made to inventory management technology.
• How modern, mobile inventory management tools will help your managers reduce costs and increase product
Newman Technology realized it needed a modern-day solution for production accuracy and accountability and turned to a fully integrated ERP solution from the Plex Manufacturing Cloud. Newman Technology cut inventory costs by 25% and achieves 98% inventory accuracy.

Near-perfect inventory visibility is critical to transforming the customer experience and competing in the retail revolution. Yet inventory accuracy across retail sectors hovers at around 60%. That shortfall causes retailers to lose out on potential sales and puts customer loyalty at risk.How do retailers address this issue? RFID—or radio frequency identification—is 10 times more efficient at cycle counting and can increase inventory accuracy across the supply chain by up to 99.5%, enabling retailers to truly compete in the highly competitive omnichannel world. Launch a successful RFID technology pilot program in your retail operation with our free How-to Guide: Five Steps to Piloting RFID for Unprecedented Inventory Visibility. This guide takes you from Step 1 (a KPI checklist) to Step 5 (execution and monitoring), so you can launch a pilot program and effectively measure its ROI before moving to full deployment.

Today’s brick and mortar retailers must tackle myriad challenges in an era of industry
transformation, increased customer expectations and a highly-competitive landscape.
The vast majority are facing these hurdles head-on, with particularly dogged
efforts toward reaching omnichannel excellence: For example, according to Zebra
Technologies’ 2017 Retail Vision Study, 90% of retailers plan to have an omnichannel
practice in place by 2021, through options such as Buy Online, Pick Up in Store (BOPIS)
or Click & Collect.
It has become clear, however, that for these omnichannel efforts to succeed, inventory
visibility and accuracy (ideally 90% or more, according to the Retail Vision Study) is
more important than ever — to provide consumers with the easiest path to purchase and
retailers with the most efficient way to fulfill. Accurate inventory is the foundation upon
which all the other pillars of retail can be built, so retailers can react quickly and make
smart decisions about their busines
