Shelf management is where supply meets demand on the warehouse floor. If supply is sitting in the warehouse but the shelf or pallet is empty, there is a good chance revenue loss and possibly product loss is occurring daily. For example, if a pallet with Clovity IoT sensor detects that a pallet of strawberry's is empty and there is a pallet with another IoT sensor in the storage fridge, then a notification can be sent to Operations letting them know that the fresh fruit should be put out on the floor vs sitting in storage where it can possibly rot. Produce inventory monitoring is a key use case with positive ROI. Effective asset tracking is key to any warehouse retail operation that values many of the machines and tools that are critical to everyday operations. With Clovity software our sensors and integrated mobile and tablet applications, an operations manager can quickly identify which assets are in use, it’s location and health of the asset with one touch of a screen.
