The Retail Perch Podcast
The Retail Perch podcast is hosted by the powerful duo Shekar Raman, CEO of Birdzi and Gary Hawkins, CEO of Center for Advancing Retail & Technology (CART). They have made the "Top 15 Grocery Industry Podcasts to Follow in 2021" by Feedspot.
The podcast aims to provide a fresh perspective and framework for how you view your everyday grocery trips. Whether you're a retailer, entrepreneur, or a curious mind tuning in, there is something in store for everyone. Each Monday, they will share supermarket analysis, personal stories about the industry, along with their views to provide you with further insight into everything retail grocery and AI.
This week Gary and Shekar get the opportunity to geek out with Stephen Statler, SVP at Wiliot, an Amazon-backed company that has designed IoT Pixels to track the location and temperature of produce from farms to stores. Stephen explains how their postage stamp-sized technology is allowing retailers to minimize waste and maximize freshness for customers. The three also delve into how these tiny computers are powered, the costs associated with them, their uses in grocery retail, and much more.
