Tyco Retail Solutions Collaborates With Google Cloud to Power Store Solutions for Digital Transformation

Tyco Retail Solutions has announced that it is collaborating with Google Cloud to strengthen its market leadership in real-time analytics, store execution and performance solutions. Tyco Retail and Google Cloud will collaborate to deliver use cases marrying real-time edge intelligence and decision-making with core cloud computing.

The initial phase of the partnership will integrate Tyco's real-time data-intelligence and application capabilities across store inventory, loss prevention and traffic on the Google Cloud Platform for fast, consistent, scalable performance and measurable retailer value. This integration will provide retailers with a real-time view into accurate inventory availability for unified commerce fulfillment, the company reports, as well as in-store traffic data and insights for improved customer engagement.

The new Google Cloud-based service for store shrink management enables retailers to enhance productivity, as well as increase reliability and performance of electronic article surveillance (EAS) systems for the purpose of loss prevention. Retailers will be able to incorporate external market, customer and retail data from Google Analytics and Tyco into the new extensible analytics platform.

The Google Cloud platform provides a flexible infrastructure with security and data protection. Tyco Retail will tap into Google Cloud's big-data and machine-learning solutions to build better products and fuel new solutions.

"We are excited to partner with Google Cloud and offer retailers our highly predictive analytics and innovative solutions through leading edge technology with the Google Cloud Platform," said Amin Shahidi, Tyco Retail Solutions' VP of strategy, in a prepared statement. "With best-in-class people, processes and technologies together we can deliver cutting edge insights for strategic retail outcomes."
