IoT Technology for the Retail Industry

Manage Your Retail Network With Canopy

Modern retail operators need an IoT platform capable of managing a large network of connected devices. Canopy, the IoT platform from Banyan Hills Technologies, provides real-time insights, remote monitoring and automated dispatch so there’s less downtime and more revenue.

Keep Sales Ringing With IoT Technology That Helps Minimize Downtime

Real-time Notifications

Our IoT platform, Canopy, can be configured to send email and text notification alerts. The alerts can be used, for instance, to notify operators about problems requiring field service support.

Remote Management

Canopy software allows an operator to securely and safely execute defined commands on the device endpoints. This allows the operator to recover devices in error states or otherwise quickly trigger behaviors across their fleet.

Customizable Dashboards

Configure dashboards to provide at-a-glance updates on the health of a device through real-time view Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Add, remove, configure and arrange KPIs to fit your business.
