What it does

Trax is an image recognition tool and analytics platform. The in-store shelf monitoring tool is available on tablet and mobile devices and can be used by employees to monitor sales and stock levels, as well as optimise product visibility.

The technology is designed to help retailers monitor product layout and maximise customer engagement at all points of sale.

How does the technology help retailers?
