How it works?

Our retail asset management and security solutions use wireless, sim-free sensors and tags connected to the Orion Data Network to give you real-time visibility on the status of your assets and stores at all times. Wireless and battery-powered, our Orion sensors will last for over three years per battery. They can be mounted in seconds, requiring no wires or mains power source.

We install smart sensors to monitor location, environmental conditions (temperature, tilt, etc.). Orion tags also automatically collect data from various assets as they move around your supply chain, providing a real-time overview on your bespoke management dashboard. Real-time monitoring and tracking data give you a single source of information on all your retail assets and activities. This data can also be used for compliance and reporting purposes.

Example Use Cases

Food temperature monitoring

Accurately monitoring the temperature of food storage and transit facilities is crucial for any business in the food and beverage industry. Our IoT solutions ensure that food safety procedures are observed. Simple devices link to an online dashboard that can be configured to send alerts in the event of abnormal temperature levels.

After a quick installation, you are able to access real-time tracking and total site visibility. If a breach occurs, you’ll be alerted immediately via your chosen channel.

In addition, the Orion Data Network’s anti-jamming technology ensures mitigates weaknesses in alarm systems, providing peace of mind that your alarm system will not fail.

High value retail

High value retail supply chain monitoring

Monitor high value goods along the entire supply chain with the Orion Data Network’s smart tags and sensors. These devices are small with a long battery life, which means that they are easily concealed. Smarter Technologies’ tracking systems report on valuable data such as:

  • Location
  • Temperature
  • Humidity
  • Shock
  • Tilt

This data provides valuable insights into quality control, traceability and responsibility boundaries, helping transport and supply chain suppliers to check if sensitive materials are safe, delivered on-time and transported in ideal conditions.

E-Comm asset tracking

E-Commerce asset tracking

Further accelerated by the coronavirus pandemic, e-commerce continues to grow exponentially both for low-value high-volume goods and high-end retail items. To compete with online giants such as Amazon, retailers need to optimise their supply chain efficiency by tracking deliveries and returns and ensuring that their high value and luxury goods are protected at all times.

Combat counterfeiting

Combat counterfeiting

In the wake of counterfeit products flooding the market, one of the biggest challenges for retailers is to maintain brand integrity. When tracking high value retail assets with the Orion Data Network tags, every item receives a unique identifier that enables you to establish the item’s proof of origin. As a result, both the customer and the business can ensure that the item that finally reaches the customer is a genuine product.

Prove point of origin

Prove point of origin

In supermarkets, tagging produce along the food chain can provide proof of origin to food customers to assure them that labelling such as “Organic” or “Gluten-Free” is genuine.
