Increasing operational efficiency in retail with M2M solutions

Increasing operational efficiency in retail with M2M solutionsMarketing Release – According to Vodafone, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions can increase the operational efficiency of a business in the retail industry by putting focus on the daily monitoring of the supply chain.

The rising energy costs and shifts in shopping habits are placing retail supply chains under greater pressure than ever. Increasing the operational efficiency of a business can be the key to staying one step ahead of the competition.

The condition and location of goods during shipping, from manufacturers to distributors, can be easily monitored using M2M solutions through wireless, battery-powered M2M tracking devices.

M2M tracking devices can also monitor where shipments and assets are, from entire containers to individual products and pieces of equipment, in order to minimise any delays.

Furthermore, you can also keep track of your on-site assets that play a vital role in your operations. By tracking your assets with M2M, you will always know where they are, and with remote wireless security cameras you can get visual verification of all your sites and assets as well as receive notifications in the event of a break-in.
