Retail – Merchandising

In today’s retail landscape, effective brick and mortar mobile device solutions are crucial to both operational efficiency and customer satisfaction. Given the disruptive reach of companies like Amazon, these solutions are key to your store associates creating both a better and more differentiated user experience for your customers via proper product placement, inventory lookups and efficient marketing installation.

Properly deploying and managing the mobile devices to enable these functions, however, poses a specific set of challenges.

  • Buying, provisioning and supporting single use-case hardware can be expensive.
  • Providing timely, specialized and responsive support to retail associates is difficult.
  • Understanding which solutions are ideal for your business requires dedicated strategic expertise.
  • Customer interactions with mobile devices and apps can provide invaluable data, but that requires the ability to analyze data in real-time and provide predictive insights to take advantage of it.
