    Internet of Things for Retail

    Jessica Knight, CEO of UCS Solutions, believes that IoT can provide real solutions to operational challenges such as inventory accuracy, insight into customers’ physical shopping behaviours and speed of fulfilment in meeting customer needs, particularly those of omnichannel consumers. Knight comments:

    “The Internet of Things (IoT) is an increasingly talked about topic in all sectors –particularly in retail. It’s a concept that not only has the potential to impact how the retail sector sells products, but how consumers buy them”.
