Reimagine the store with AWS
Powered by AWS services and AWS Partners, AWS Smart Store capabilities help you transform customer experience, reduce costs through automation, and offer unprecedented opportunities to stand out from the competition.

Benefits

Transform customer experiences
AWS helps retailers leverage next-gen technologies to harness customer insights, drive self-service convenience, optimize equipment and inventory, and keep stores safe and healthy.
Innovate faster
AWS Smart Store’s large and growing set of capabilities help you innovate and experiment quickly, so you find winning ideas faster and drive the outcomes your business needs.
Increase business agility
Retailers deal with vast amounts of data across many locations, so scalability is key. Bring the computing power of the cloud directly to the store to better manage network connectivity, bandwidth costs, and data privacy while improving insights across stores.
Digitize stores
Create digital twins of stores to improve visibility, enable cross-store analytics, and optimize operations across all your stores.

Reinvent the store experience

With AWS, retailers gain key shopper insights, improve the in-store experience, and streamline operations to lower costs.

In-store visibility

Optimize operations by tracking and analyzing customer traffic and shopping behavior. Machine learning (ML) platforms can track store traffic flow, queue depth, heat maps, loss prevention, and more. Cameras can also detect defective products on the shelves, increasing quality and reducing operational costs.

Shopper tracking

Add computer vision to existing IP cameras in stores to record the “path-to-purchase” for customers to improve store layouts, assist in loss prevention, and assess checkout efficiency.

Modern checkout

Fast checkout leads to happier customers. AWS helps retailers create frictionless in-store transactions using cashier-less and voice-enabled checkout, scan-and-go apps, and mobile-enabled technologies for fast payments. Stores can use a combination of store cameras, smart carts, and AI/ML to detect when consumers choose items, accelerating checkout.
