 / AI-enabled Cloud + Edge Smart Merchandiser Solution


Dedicated to boosting management efficiency and driving sales through innovative technologies, leading brands of merchandisers are seeking to connect their devices and access real-time shelf information. Before partnering with us, they primarily utilized traditional beverage or coil vending machines that are deployed factories, schools, and so on.

Customer Requirements​


The customer looks for an intelligent temperature controller that is adaptable to various merchandiser models and features a user-friendly interface, as well as a camera capable of capturing shelf display information.

Application Front

An intelligent merchandiser management platform must be developed to facilitate functions such as asset management, fault prediction, remote management, and shelf arrangement.


As the “brain” of the merchandiser, the Al controller controls the operation of the core components such as the compressor, fan, and signals. It can be expanded to collect data, including interior/exterior temperature, exterior humidity, the foot traffic, open/closed door monitoring, and SKU layouts of the merchandiser, making it as intelligent as possible and being everything in control.


Intelligence Equipment Management, Asset Status Viewed Clearly

With the intelligent IoT controllers, users can access real-time device information on the platform, including location data, LED status, door openings, foot traffic, etc. Notifications promptly alert operators to location deviations, abnormal temperatures, or operational irregularities, enabling swift responses.

Remote Control and Management, Work Pressure Reduced

Users can remotely manage and upgrade merchandisers, while location managers can utilize mobile applications to control temperature, effectively managing the machines anytime, anywhere with ease.

SKU Shelf Analysis, Enhanced Inspection Efficiency

Leveraging computer vision recognition technology, images are transformed in the form of SKU shelf counts, shelf occupancy rates, stockout rates, etc., which makes inspection more efficient.

Customized KPIs, Improved Efficiency for Sales Execution

Users can tailor the KPIs of display shelves. In cases of non-compliance, users can promptly access the non-compliant items, follow up timely with sales guidance and improvements to elevate efficiency.
