The ALDO Group is a private Canadian corporation that owns and operates a worldwide chain of shoe and accessory stores.

Overview

The ALDO Group needed to create a proof of concept system for sending electronic receipts to customers through their existing Point of Sale systems using Amazon Web Services. The system needed to use a data processing flow that could incorporate automated anomaly detection.

Challenge

With advancing technologies Aldo needed to setup a system that could electronically send receipts to customers. Their current process was all within their point of sale system and only included physical receipts printed at registers.
