MONTREAL, ONT.—BrainBox AI, which specializes in artificial intelligence for the commercial real estate sector, recently announced an agreement with SAIL Outdoors, a Canadian outdoor equipment retailer, to install BrainBox AI’s technology in 11 of its retail stores in Quebec and Ontario.
The pair will work together for the next three years as part of the deal, focusing on and studying the carbon footprint of SAIL’s operations. BrainBox AI’s energy optimization solution fits right in with this collaborative initiative as SAIL looks to optimize its existing systems through this project and reduce its carbon emissions throughout its retail sites, indicates a release.
For BrainBox AI, the sign-on of SAIL’s 11 stores adds an additional 700,000 square feet of commercial real estate to the company’s widening footprint in the multi-site retail space, adds the release.
“As we see more and more brick-and-mortar retailers looking for answers on how they can contribute to the fight against climate change, we see an opportunity for our technology to help them make that impact at scale,” said Sam Ramadori, CEO at BrainBox AI, in a statement. “We are extremely pleased that SAIL has chosen to work with BrainBox AI as a key part of their sustainability strategy and journey to reduce their carbon footprint.”
