Combination of store IoT and cloud-based visual merchandising will provide new real-time visibility and analytic power.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) JANUARY 14, 2019 – Mobile Technologies Inc. (MTI), a global leader in consumer electronics retail security and One Door™ Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based visual merchandising software, today announced a partnership to integrate their offerings. By combining MTI’s real-time store sensing with One Door’s visual merchandising and space planning capabilities, the partnership will give consumer electronics retailers new, real-time, visibility into the state of merchandising in their stores.
As part of this agreement, MTI and One Door will combine data from MTI Connect, an open IoT retail platform that provides real-time store visibility, with data from One Door’s Merchandising Cloud, a cloud-based application that delivers space planning and visual merchandising capabilities including in-store execution and compliance management.
For retailers looking to make more frequent changes to their stores and localize their product promotions, communicating and confirming merchandising initiatives is becoming more time-consuming and costlier. “The combination of our real-time store data and Merchandising Cloud’s tailored and guided store plan will provide associates with up-to-the-second information on how they can take action to improve their merchandising results, and maximize sales,” says Matt Haroldson, VP of Global Marketing at MTI.
“Space planners and visual merchandisers using traditional planograms have limited confidence in the quality of merchandising in stores,” said Dan Wittner, COO of One Door. “We look forward to partnering with MTI to incorporate real-time store data into Merchandising Cloud’s existing compliance measurement capabilities, further improving corporate visibility into the quality of merchandising.”
