Product availability: one of the biggest stakes for retailers.

Nearly 90% of global retail sales take place in physical stores and, as a result, most of them invest in computing power closer to the buyer.

The management of shelves is one of the major challenges for distributors. These must ensure a regular supply of shelves to ensure maximum sales and optimal customer satisfaction. In the face of competition from e-commerce, customer satisfaction has become extremely volatile.

Stores face many problems: internal process failure, resource constraints and data failure. These daily issues are managed manually by the sales representatives of the sectors responsible for the brands and by the staff responsible for the departments.
