Egburt, is a complete IoT application service platform comprising software, hardware, and communications built on a powerful edge computing architecture. The first implementation of Egburt was in a smart retail application. Egburt was installed in a number of discount retail stores in the fall of 2014, monitoring freezer health, store environment conditions, and customer foot traffic.
During the first two months of installation, one store was alerted to a cooler outage in real time which allowed them to salvage 3 coolers worth of inventory. This savings alone more than covered the cost of Egburt for one year, creating a clear ROI and value proposition to the store owners.
Wellington’s SCS Connect system is an asset location and datalogging system for bottle coolers.
The brands need to maximise their coolers’ functionality as a selling tool, by deploying them effectively and best engaging the customer. Visibility of traffic patterns, temperatures, and reloading behaviour can help them maximise throughput, close the loop on marketing activity, and guarantee availability of the right drink at the right temperature.
