SATO Global Solutions’ digital store platform is designed to improve operational efficiencies and increase sales by leveraging the power of data. Capitalizing on a robust foundation of scalable, secure Intel® technologies, the platform provides business intelligence targeted to the specific challenges of the retail industry. The platform seamlessly connects item RFID tags, sensors, gateways, and videos to deliver actionable insight on all aspects of inventory management and customer engagement completing the loop "from your back room to your showroom to their living room."
Historically, retail store technologies have been offered independently of one another and were designed to capture information, not share it with other store systems, generating unsatisfactory ROI. The SGS digital store platform links applications, data, and in-store communication. The data it connects can come from the consumer, any of a retailer’s operational departments, or from outside vendors, to deliver a comprehensive, omnichannel customer experience and the industry standard in retail solutions.
"Although consumers use digital devices to better prepare for their trips to the store, a whopping 82 percent of shoppers make the actual purchase decision in-aisle," according to a 2015 report from Forrester Research, Inc. This means retailers will have to provide the right information and service at the right moment to the right person.
Data can be shared with retail systems for inventory tracking, including merchandise inventory, point-of-sale (PoS) software and digital signage, providing actionable insight across key store systems. By achieving multiple tasks with a single infrastructure, the SGS Retail solution can dramatically boost a retailer’s ROI.
a gateway to the internet of things (iot)
SATO Global Solutions delivers the rugged dependability and reliable performance required in a retail environment. Our strategic partnerships with industry leaders allow us to leverage hang tags, sensors, and other identifying technology to capture data and convert it into accurate, meaningful, actionable insights through the IoT gateway.
We deliver complete solutions including all the hardware, software, consumables, and support to link this data to your IT systems, including existing merchandise inventory and point of sale software. By turning this data into meaningful, actionable information, we help you decrease costs, increase revenue, optimize processes, enhance security, protect your investments, and improve customer satisfaction.
Tighter regulations coupled with a strong focus on cost containment, patient safety, and patient and employee satisfaction have pushed the healthcare industry to increase its use of technology. SATO Global Solutions offers comprehensive and affordable automatic identification (Auto-ID) solutions that enable hospitals, medical centers, specimen labs, and other medical providers to reduce the cost of operations, improve the accuracy of identification systems, and enhance patient safety and satisfaction. By empowering your staff with tools to meet your data collection and labeling needs, we help you reduce workloads in inventory control, prevent medical errors, and achieve traceability. Our solutions can fulfill the enhanced product tracing pedigree requirements that rolled out for the pharmaceutical industry in January 2015, as well as the unique device identification (UDI) requirements for medical devices effective in September 2015.
phase jitter modulation (pjm)
Our patented Phase Jitter Modulation (PJM) RFID technology has revolutionized the orthopedic implant industry. Since it’s often impossible to determine the correct implant size until the surgery is in progress, manufacturers typically supply multiple sizes on a consignment basis; unused materials are returned to the manufacturer. Tracking loaned and returned supplies was traditionally a time- and labor-intensive process, requiring each item in the kit to be manually picked, scanned, received, and returned. Our PJM Orbit® and PJM Assure® vastly improve loan kit processing, enabling an entire kit to be scanned simultaneously with 100% reliability at speeds of up to 600 tags per second – even when items are stacked or contain metals! Unlike other RFID technologies, PJM RFID is completely unaffected by liquid, making our PJM Blood Safety ideal for tracking blood samples with 100% accuracy. Our PJM Cabinet provides real-time stock control for medication and supplies including inventory, expiration, and recall management.
FOOD AND BEVERAGE
To ensure the freshness and safety of our food supply, it’s critical for growers, processors, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers to be able to track and trace food and beverage products across the supply chain. SATO Global Solutions can help you meet new GS1 standards and boost regulatory compliance by customizing a food traceability solution that gives you complete visibility from farm-to-fork or sea-to-sushi.
Using Auto-ID technology, we link your physical goods with virtual data and then provide tracking systems to trace the foods and beverages on their journey from harvest and ingredient delivery, through processing and shipping, all the way to the point of sale. With barcodes or RFID tags on a carton, crate, pallet, or clamshell, you can easily and accurately use real-time data to identify, recall, or return any item. For perishable items, combining RFID tags with temperature sensors lets you monitor and ensure an unbroken cold chain.
At every step of the way, answers to key questions about product history and safety are at your fingertips, saving you time and money while avoiding potential health issues and associated litigation.
- Where was this grown?
- What pesticides were used?
- When was this harvested?
- How was this transported?
- Where was this processed?
- Were adequate precautions taken to prevent contamination?
- What is the expiration date?
- Were temperature controls maintained throughout the entire process?
SATO Global Solutions provides turn-key systems to help you move food and beverages through the supply chain more quickly and efficiently. Our barcode and RFID technologies speed up the data capture process and cut crucial cycle times from processing and delivery. Combined with our Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) software and our expertise in Materials Handling and Automation, we can optimize all aspects of your operations. Let us design a solution that helps you:
