Initial installation of three pilot systems features integration of the retailer's point-of-sale cash register data with INEO's loss prevention, customer demographic and store traffic data.
SURREY, BC, June 22, 2021 /CNW/ - INEO Tech Corp. (TSXV: INEO) (the "Company" or "INEO"), an innovative provider of location-based digital advertising, analytics and loss prevention solutions for retailers, today announced it has successfully installed three pilot Welcoming Systems at stores operated by FHC Enterprises (or "FHC") in British Columbia. FHC is the owner-operator of both FIELDS and McFrugal's Discount Outlet Stores. FIELDS has over 60 store locations across Western Canada. Meanwhile, McFrugal's Discount Outlet has 3 store locations across Western Canada.
As part of the pilot installations, INEO is also proud to announce the beta launch of its new point-of-sale integration module called INEO Uplink. Currently undergoing extensive acceptance testing, INEO Uplink integrates the retailer's cash register data with INEO's Mission Control analytics dashboard, which houses INEO's unique store traffic data to provide analytics which were previously unattainable.
"We are very excited to begin working with FHC," said Kyle Hall, CEO of INEO. "FHC is a solid operator and respected retailer with a large network of FIELDS and McFrugal's stores in Canada. Thus far, FHC has been the perfect partner to showcase how our INEO Welcoming Systems' artificial intelligence-driven traffic data can enhance the information retailers' have within their point-of-sale systems. From reporting simple conversion metrics to delivering more robust, actionable operational elements, integrating INEO's analytics capabilities with the retailer's POS data generates pivotal insights. This demonstrates how the INEO Welcoming Systems are uniquely multi-dimensional in delivering loss prevention, digital display advertising, customer demographic data and store traffic data all in one system."
Jason McDougall, CEO of FHC commented, "INEO has developed a very interesting solution and we are looking forward to implementing it in our stores. Serving our customers better is always our number one priority and INEO's technology will help us do that. The relationship with INEO is a good fit given we are both Western Canadian companies who are leaders in our respective markets."
Acceptance testing of the initial three INEO Welcoming Systems is expected to be completed by the end of the summer, while INEO Uplink integration testing and acceptance will continue into the fall. INEO and FHC are actively collaborating on a roll-out plan to expand INEO's Welcoming Systems to additional FIELDS and McFrugal's locations.
