Using mobile to differentiate the customer experience in retail stores
20 September 2017
Huw Thomas, Managing Director, PMC
Many retailers have been considering deploying mobile solutions in-store for several years. Though in reality introducing another technology stack in to an already loaded IT infrastructure can be complex and costly to implement.
Using your website as the platform to drive your mobile POS solution and to enable a true omni-channel experience. Firstly, your existing website is likely to include much richer detail on your products and high-quality imagery, which will help to drive a personalised sale experience. Secondly, in many cases, the website contains most, if not all, of a retailer’s products with accurate access to central stock details which will assist with extended range sales in smaller stores.
However, going mobile requires more than just presenting your website on a tablet and starting to sell. eCommerce systems know nothing about managing scanning, card holder present payments or printing. Dealing with cash payments and the rapidly changing device market is a whole other ball game. Also, how will you manage the tracking of cashier sales?
