As part of the coronavirus pandemic regulations, retailers must limit the number of customers in their stores. A smart access control management with digital lightings at the entrance indicates whether the maximum number of people in the store has been reached and sounds an alarm in case of unauthorized access.
The retail sector is struggling to cope with digitalization. But the Internet of Things offers huge potential – for example, via digital price tags and IoT devices that start processes at the touch of a button.
While online retail is booming, bricks-and-mortar retail is stagnating. Karstadt is therefore attaching digital price tags to garments in its department store in Düsseldorf – thus linking online and offline shopping.
Digital price tags, in-store video displays managed centrally and eye-tracking glasses: Globus is one of the most digitalized retailers in Germany. The reason for its success is a highly professional technical infrastructure.
Nowadays, orders are often supposed to reach their destination on the same day. With In-Car-Delivery, the detour via a central pick-up warehouse can be avoided and delivery can be accelerated.
