StealthNetwork Communications® Introduces the StealthMatrix ARC™, Retail Inventory Tech Marking a New Beginning in Inventory Management
Bringing Gaming Tech to Retailers for Customer-Friendly Inventory Management Solutions
Precise Item Store Locator Uses Augmented Reality, Helping to Find Items Quickly
StealthNetwork Communications® has announced the launch of StealthMatrix, a next generation sensory-based, item-level tracking system that locates merchandise in a department store or warehouse within three feet, using IoT sensor technology and 2D mapping. Already destined for a major national retailer, it bridges the gap between retail stores and omni-channel e-commerce operations. StealthMatrix ARC™ is compatible with Android and Apple (iOS) smartphones for use by customers, sales associates and store operations. The product suite includes an all-encompassing IoT sensor device with indoor location application software and way-finding capabilities, to pinpoint the exact location of each individual piece of merchandise.
Using augmented reality to guide sales, store operations and customers, StealthMatrix is unique in that it does not require additional IoT sensors, or specially installed hardware, creating low entry and operating costs. It will enhance the customer experience while eliminating lost sales precipitated by a customer’s inability to find that “special pair of jeans” that may be somewhere in a store, but not in its proper place. StealthMatrix provides retailers the opportunity to reorient and maximize their retail space into local fulfillment centers.
“Now you can truly leverage your omni-channel from supply chain through e-commerce to utilize brick-and-mortar stores as distribution and fulfillment centers,” said Margaret Nyswonger, President and CEO of StealthNetwork Communications®.
“Additionally, with this technology, customers will no longer arrive at a store only to discover that an item shown online to be in stock, is nowhere to be found! Our technology locates that single item even if it’s tucked away under a counter, saving a great deal of aggravation and potentially driving people back to stores, as they are now confident in the store’s inventory.”
“What we’re introducing is truly game-changing for the retail industry, something that will drive the next generation of retail inventory locating,” said Nyswonger. “The time, effort and cost saved by retailers will be substantial. It is ready for the market and can be deployed in minutes at a store already using RFID tech.”
“From the sales management side, all team members (Senior Executives to associate) will have a virtual single pane view of each inventory item from anywhere in the world,” she said.
