RetailNext Announces General Availability of Aurora All-In-One Sensor

Combination Sensor Combines Stereo Video, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth into Single Device to Integrate Seamlessly with Cloud-Based Analytics Solution

SAN JOSE, Calif. – May 17, 2016 – RetailNext Inc., the worldwide expert and market leader in retail analytics for optimizing shopper experiences at brick-and-mortar retail stores, today at Shoptalk announced the general availability of its Aurora all-in-one combination sensor. Announced in January at the National Retail Federation’s The BIG Show, the Aurora sensor is the world’s first sensor to integrate stereo video in HD, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth into a single sensor, designed specifically for the complex needs of retailers around the world. 

“RetailNext is excited to have delivered and installed its first Aurora sensors this week,” said Bridget Johns, RetailNext’s head of marketing and customer experience. “Retailers globally can now deploy a single integrated device with the functionality of three or more previous devices, including key Traffic 2.0 data like the capture rate of passby traffic and shoppers’ paths and dwell engagements through the store, all for the same price of a standard stereo traffic sensor.“

“The Aurora sensor was designed and built to close a gap RetailNext and its retailer customers identified in the sensor hardware market,” said Arun Nair, chief technology officer and co-founder at RetailNext. “Replacing a ceiling full of sensors, Aurora allows retailers to install a single device, designed and built for retail’s specialized needs, and one that is both aesthetically pleasing and seamlessly integrated with RetailNext’s market standard in-store retail analytics platform. While RetailNext continues to remain committed to a hardware-agnostic SaaS platform, it is every bit as committed to helping retailers solve their most pressing problems, and the Aurora sensor immediately delivers upon unmet needs in the industry.”
