Highlights from the 2016 FMI Energy & Store Development Conference
A recent Grocery Headquarters article shares a preview of the 2016 FMI Energy and Store Development Conference. A brief recap of the article is below.
With increasing competition for food retailers, store maintenance and merchandising of products is becoming more important. The 2016 FMI Energy & Store Development Conference features the latest trends in merchandising, refrigeration, store design, energy conservation and other key areas. Emerson Climate Technologies is a sponsor of this year’s event, where we are highlighting new products and services, as well as hosting the store and facility tours for attendees.
At our Emerson Climate Technologies table, we will discuss the wireless sensor system, which allows retailers to quickly and easily monitor individual case and simulated product temperatures. Compatible with the E2 facility management system and Site Supervisor, the wireless sensor system can help retailers reduce operating costs, easily accommodate store layout changes and provide secure facility data transmission.With 2015 EPA compliance standards and DOE regulations continuing to impact the commercial refrigeration industry, we will also engage conference attendees in discussion about energy-efficient and environmentally friendly alternatives, including recently approved low-GWP blends and increasing natural refrigerant options. These alternatives are now available in the expanded Copeland Scroll discus and CO2 compressors.
Conference attendees can also learn more about our new three-month trial program of the cellular-connectivity ProAct™ Services, the leading enterprise management service for supermarkets, convenience stores, retail, commercial buildings and foodservice. With ProAct Services, retailers gain around-the-clock visibility and valuable insights into their facility systems without the need for connectivity to a company network, no significant IT support required and no risk of access to critical POS data through the monitoring system.
