Autogrill had a clear understanding of their needs and use cases for cost, working capital, margins, and more, yet were looking for a partner to best support them in achieving their goals. Autogrill's suppliers requested access to their core data for better visibility, analytics, and effectiveness of their orders. Autogrill also required clearer anticipation into stock levels, localized costs in each market, as well as additional information around their supply chain. They needed to access data from their IBM i (AS/400) and SAP systems in a quick, easy, and secure way.
About The Customer
Autogrill is an Italian-based, multinational catering company selling food and non-food products. They operate in 30 different countries, primarily in Europe, and run restaurants along all Italian highways. Autogrill also represents other important brands in Italy and Europe. Many suppliers want to sell their goods in Autogrill shops.
Autogrill partnered with OpenLegacy, a company that could create and develop APIs. OpenLegacy's platform enabled Autogrill to easily access the required data locked in multiple systems. Autogrill created 20 microservices in only 6 months using automation and standardization without any Java expertise from the integration team. They recommend all their suppliers to use the OpenLegacy platform as well, simplifying their access to data and making collaboration faster and easier.

Remote Temperature Monitoring of Perishable Goods Saves Money
RMONI was facing temperature monitoring challenges in a cold chain business. A cold chain must be established and maintained to ensure goods have been properly refrigerated during every step of the process, making temperature monitoring a critical business function. Manual registration practice can be very costly, labor intensive and prone to mistakes.
Retail Uses RFID to Enable Cold Chain Monitoring
Like most grocery retailers, Hy-Vee is faced with the challenge of providing the highest quality products to its shoppers. Shoppers want the longest possible shelf life from perishable products and expect a consistent product experience each time they shop. Controlling the quality of products sold leads to shopper loyalty, which is of paramount importance to the success of Hy-Vee. Before products arrive in stores, Hy-Vee's distribution centers (DCs) handle items including dairy products, fresh meats, seafood, deli items, produce and frozen goods, all of which have different temperature needs and sensitivities. During transit from suppliers to DCs, Hy-Vee has limited visibility and temperature management abilities due to large amount of supplier managed transportation. For instance, during a week-long transit, a supplier's carrier equipment may malfunction, causing an item to thaw and then refreeze once repairs are made. Hy-Vee sought help from TempTRIP, an RFID solution provider that focuses on shipping, storage, receiving, and temperature control. TempTRIP's EPC RFID tags use Impinj chips to monitor and report temperature readings throughout the shipping and receiving process. The tags can also be re-configured and re-used, a unique feature within the current market of temperature monitoring devices.
