Christmas is coming

It’s September already and for most people this signifies that autumn is just around the corner and that the weather is turning a little colder, but if you’re a retailer, you know this means that it’s time to prepare and plan for Christmas.

The Christmas season is the biggest shopping event of the year, and for some retailers, sales during the festive season can account for up to 30 percent of their annual revenue. Of course, all retailers will be working hard to attract customers and generate sales during the biggest holiday shopping period of the year, so you need to work extra hard to compete.

The real key to success is planning ahead and implementing steps to prepare for the upcoming seasonal rush and be ready to maximise the potential. And to help you achieve this, there are several key tasks you should complete long before the Christmas season is upon us.

Mobile Computing Devices – The Retailer Benefits

 RMS - Retail Solutions that Work for You

 

In today’s era of immense choice for consumers and increased digitalisation, retail customers are not only discerning about what they want, but are putting new demands on retail customer service, and when they have made a decision, they want it now.

Brick-and-mortar retailers are not just competing with each other, they are also competing against successful on-line retailers. Compared with a simple and quick purchase from the couch at home, it is especially important for retailers to create faster and simpler ways to make brick-and-mortar purchases.

With the use of mobile devices at the POS, retailers are able to step up to the challenge and satisfy the customer’s need for pre-purchase information whilst in-store, through the integration of all relevant distribution channels.

Today’s retailers need to meet these consumer requirements to ensure a competitive advantage. One of the most important ways an advantage can be acquired is by sales assistants utilising mobile devices in-store. By using them, the sales assistant can get informed more quickly and efficiently, and therefore improve customer service and increase sales turnover.
