RedstoneConnect has secured a consulting and software mandate worth €0.75m with TH Real Estate, one of the world's largest real estate investment managers, to develop and install a smart software solution for its PEP shopping centre in Munich, Germany.

The initial phase of the contract would see RedstoneConnect provide consultancy services in order to design the framework for a smart solution in the retail space. 

The project would culminate in RedstoneConnect's software platform 'Connect' being deployed as part of a major multi million euro refit of the shopping centre, due to go live in 2018.

The 'Connect' platform would enable shoppers to find shops, services or locate their car using in-centre wayfinding kiosks and a location aware smartphone app. All data generated through digital channels, including online and interactive directories, as well as the smartphone app will be managed by the Company's Wayfinding, CMS, CRM and MIS modules available through the 'Connect' platform.  

Key services including smart parking, location based services, Wi-Fi usage and audience measurement analytics would not only deliver greater operational insight but also improve the shopper experience.
