Eagle Eye, a leading UK provider of digital consumer engagement solutions to the retail and hospitality industries, is delighted to announce that the company, as a sub-contractor of Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions, will undertake certain services in relation to a minimum two year contract for the deployment of the Eagle Eye AIR platform within Asda stores in the UK. The innovative platform integrates with existing ASDA-Walmart POS solutions in Asda stores.

This contract, for the digital counting and reconciliation of own brand and supplier brand coupons at point of sale across the Asda estate, will eliminate the existing requirement for the manual reconciliation of paper vouchers and improve fraud prevention and operational efficiency. The contract will enable the real-time issuance and redemption of coupons and vouchers for Asda-specific campaigns.

The deployment of the Eagle Eye platform comes after a one year development period. The production contract will contribute material revenue to Eagle Eye over the term of the minimum contract period.

Phill Blundell, chief executive officer of Eagle Eye, said: “We are thrilled to have been selected by a company of Asda’s quality to implement our platform. This is a major endorsement of our partnership with Toshiba and Eagle Eye’s innovative technology offering. We look forward to furthering our relationship and working closely with Asda and its suppliers.”

Andrew Carr, UKI country manager, Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions, said: “Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions is proactively acting on Asda’s requirements to help them deliver innovation and achieve their vision of the future. Our collaboration with Eagle Eye and integration of their platform with Toshiba POS systems allows Asda real time reporting and analysis capabilities for digital campaigns.”
