Energy is the fourth largest in-store operating cost for retailers and as such impacts the top and bottom line of a retail establishment. Owners and operators are always striving to lower energy costs while also walking the fine line of safety and aesthetics. Managing this, however, has been a constant struggle with disjointed control and analytics solutions offering typically little more than complexity in operation and no long-term analytics to benchmark performance.
On top of energy concerns, retail throughout the world has embraced other technologies within the store that increase customer engagement, loyalty, and the overall shopping experience. These additional technological systems come with further overhead and analytics that are further abstracted from the store in other systems.
DGLux5 aids retail by bringing all of these data sources together for a single-pane-of-glass control and dashboarding allowing store managers to corporate headquarters to visually manage the operations. Additionally, whole portfolios of stores can be benchmarked by chains to activity find outliers or remotely troubleshoot before service calls are necessary.
