ANNAPOLIS, Md. (PRWEB) May 09, 2018
Powershelf is pleased to announce Bumble Bee Foods will join the Powershelf IoT Network which tracks consumer goods at select grocery locations. Alongside products from leading consumer brands, including Johnson & Johnson, GlaxoSmithKline and King’s Hawaiian, Bumble Bee tuna and other seafood products will be monitored in real time for out-of-stocks by Powershelf’s proprietary Internet of Things (IoT) network of software and sensors. The hardware runs along eRails, which provide network connectivity and power to the shelf’s edge. Detailed always-on devices provide data and analytics that will be shared with the Bumble Bee management team and other key stakeholders anywhere in the world in real time.
“The Powershelf Network is a tremendous opportunity for Bumble Bee Foods,” said Allan Jackson, Vice President, Sales at Bumble Bee Foods. “This technology will not only ensure that our consumers encounter fewer out-of-stocks, but will also grant us unprecedented insights into how our products perform in stores in real time.”
“We look forward to Bumble Bee Foods joining our network,” said John White, CEO of Powershelf. “Their products are a key part of so many consumers’ lives, and we are excited to show them how Powershelf can improve sales and operational efficiency.”
The Powershelf IoT Network is deployed in select grocery stores in the US, reporting inventory, pricing, sales, losses, and other data in real time. The network plans to expand its membership with more iconic brands in 2018.
