Germany-based Software AG will partner with Detego to provide retailers granular insights into their inventory through a suite of software programmes.

Through the Detego suite, retailers can get real-time item-level location in the store, backroom or the warehouse, a hands-free RFID system, and detailed analytics and reporting.

Software AG will integrate this suite through its ERP and CRM systems, as well as provide IT infrastructure.

Software AG retail industry director Oliver Guy said: "Digital transformation is a disruptive force that helps retailers become significantly more competitive and remain healthier for the long-term as rapid change obliterates traditional business methods.

“By connecting to, and orchestrating across, a retailer's IT ecosystem, the combined solution of Software AG’s digital business platform and the Detego suite introduces an entirely fresh way to interact with customers, to promote unique value propositions, and to go to market in diverse and exciting ways.”

Detego claims that in partnership with Software AG, it can provide fast and cost-efficient in-store software deployment for retailers.

"The Detego suite introduces an entirely fresh way to interact with customers."

Detego chief executive officer Uwe Hennig said: "Retailers around the globe are striving to create an omnichannel shopping experience.

"We are delighted to be working with Software AG by providing powerful new capabilities that evolve existing business models and design innovative omni-channel experiences, optimise legacy retail systems, and will generate new revenue streams.

“Time, cost and investment protection are key factors for fashion retailers when implementing digital store and omni-channel strategies.”

Based in London, UK, Detego develops software products that offer real-time analysis and article transparency for fashion retailers. Its partner Software AG helps retailers with their omnichannel strategies through its digital business platform.
