Case Summary

The client, a US-based manufacturer of display equipment and refrigeration systems, wanted to make its operations across retail stores more energy-efficient, especially for refrigerated goods. SLK co-innovated with the customer to build a self-service SaaS-based solution to drive energy and cost savings. This helped the customer with higher efficiency through self-service multi-site control and remote troubleshooting capability, saving 200+ person-hours per store.

The Challenge

The client wanted to efficiently monitor the temperature of frozen and refrigerated cases to reduce equipment downtime. They also wanted to control this business-critical operation remotely to save cost and person-hours. To achieve these goals, the client needed greater visibility of operations across their dispersed network of retail stores. For this, the client sought a partner who could build a tailored technology solution to create a centralized enterprise-wide operational framework.

This provided client with multi-site control, quick and accurate problem diagnosis, secure user access, and detailed data capture on user activity, alarm history, and temperature logs. Key components of our SaaS-based solution are:

  • Automated recording of critical data in a consistent manner across stores
  • Centralized visibility and multi-site access for early problem identification
  • Secure access to authorized users for remote troubleshooting to minimize equipment downtime
