For many large retailers, there is a significant gap between the actual inventory in stores and warehouses and the digital records used to represent that inventory. Diminished inventory accuracy, which is often as low as 65%, makes it particularly difficult for retailers with a brick-and-mortar presence to pursue omnichannel strategies designed to improve the customer experience by enabling, for example, shoppers to order a product online and pick it up in the store. With its ViZixⓇ item chain management platform, Mojix is helping major retailers store, analyze and act on inventory data collected from IoT sensor streams in real time. Built using Confluent Cloud and Apache Kafka®, the ViZix platform supports real-time operational intelligence with complex event processing for a hybrid cloud across the edge – at retail stores and distribution centers – and the cloud.
