IMS Evolve Transforms the Cold Chain Industry through Energy Management


The IMS Evolve Cold Chain solution enables food retailers to leverage actionable data and insights from existing infrastructure and systems, and has been benchmarked as a leading provider of machine integration and event management. Offering a service delivery mechanism that features configurable business process rules and logic, which enables automation and workflow improvements resulting in substantial efficiencies, cost savings, increased availability and ensured quality of performance.

The IMS Evolve IoT solution; an approved Intel® IoT Market Ready Solution, utilizes Intel® processors and Dell Edge Gateways to deliver clarity and consistency through a single consolidated integration layer, with a pragmatic approach to reducing waste and ensuring improved quality and experience for customers.

With the IMS Evolve IoT solution integrated within the cold chain, not only can energy consumption be reduced, but a higher quality product can be achieved, improving the customer experience and enabling retailers to enhance their brand, realize value quickly, and save money. For a leading British supermarket this has led to a 49% reduction in stock loss and 40% reduction in reactive maintenance calls driven by condition-based maintenance, resulting in 15-20% overall cost savings. The IMS Evolve solution has also enabled customers to achieve 99.98% availability of critical assets and a 30% reduction in customer complaints.
