Client
Overview

Our client is one of the most popular household brands in UAE & Kerala who have pioneered innovative and elite experiences for their customers in the white goods segment. Their major businesses include appliances, hypermarket chains, electronic devices and packed foods.

Problem
Statement

The client needed a complete end-to-end RTLS solution to manage their hypermart warehouse item movement from one store to another and keep track of items stock availability. They required data and movement information of stock in real-time in the form of alerts and messages to be delivered on smartphones/mobile devices.
Solution Requirements


  • An accurate and efficient mechanism to identify the misplacement of goods by incorporating Bluetooth Smart Devices

  • System to monitor dairy products for ambient temperature and to maintain their premium shelf quality

  • A custom mobile application for smart inventory management and real-time location analytics

Our
Solution

We deployed assistplus – our IoT based location and live analytics solution to meet the client requirements. Since there was significant movement of goods from warehouses to stores, there were chances of products getting delivered to the wrong store. Hence, goods moving out from warehouses were attached with Bluetooth low energy (BLE) Smart Tags and vehicles were installed with Smart Sensors (called CloudSense). In addition, custom BLE enabled Temperature Sensors were also installed to monitor the quality of dairy products with real-time temperature monitoring. BLE signals transmitted from these Smart Tags and Temperature Sensors were captured by CloudSense devices and sent to the assistplus cloud in real-time. Detailed analytics and report dashboards, and custom alerts and notifications via a custom mobile application was provided using the assistplus solution.

With assistplus, our client was able to achieve a significant increase in efficiency and also observed a steady decrease in errors during transportation of goods upto 40%.
