SUPERMARKETS OF THE FUTURE: WITH KIRETI MMR STORES ARE UPGRADED TO “INDUSTRY 4.0”
One of the most dynamic MMR companies in Northern Italy which operates in the food trade has chosen to adopt the SITE S.p.A. Kireti platform for transforming 62 of its stores into “Smart Factories”.
Striving to continuously satisfy its customers’ shopping needs by providing prompt service at moderate prices, the company has always distinguished itself throughout its 40 years of activity for being a pioneering supermarket chain committed to energy efficiency and sustainability.
In order to render its end users’ shopping experience safe and comfortable, each store has a wide range of machinery and systems that are essential for storing, cooking and keeping food products fresh. This product diversity entails a highly complex management of maintenance operations, high energy consumption and use of machines of less than optimised performance. For these reasons, this MMR client decided to invest, with the support of SITE, in a project of innovation that would comply with the Industry 4.0 principles and logic.
Using the KIRETI platform, the client could apply the “Internet of Things” paradigm and enjoy tax incentive benefits provided by the 2017 National Budget Bill and offered to companies investing in innovative goods.
Thanks to KIRETI, machines and systems could now be interconnected and integrated into a single platform that measures energy consumption, automate the detection of malfunctions and subsequent calls for maintenance operations, detects flaws based on data analysis, and reports all information required for decision-making in a simple and direct way.
