A new year brings new opportunities. It’s a great time to plan new sales goals and consider ways in which your business can become more efficient in retail operations.
10 years ago, Apple used this time of year to introduce the first iPhone on January 9, 2007— a device that revolutionized the way consumers interacted with their mobile phones. The iPhone also created a future for smartphones and the technology path for retailers.
Most point of sale and inventory control software offers both a mobile POS and mobile inventory feature. These features allow you to operate your business from the sales floor. While you can improve sales conversion by bringing the POS to the customer instead of the customer needing to bring their items to the POS, you can also reduce the time it takes to receive new inventory by receiving inventory right out of the box.
Your customers are shopping more and more using their mobile devices. Many retailers are utilizing Mobile POS systems to increase operational efficiency and drive more sales.
Your retail customers have continued to shop more and more with their mobile devices and retailers are using mobile devices to help convert more sales. How much mobile technology are you using to help capture more sales and increase your operational efficiency?
If you haven’t considered going “mobile” in your retail store, it’s time to start.
If you have not started using mobile devices to help with your retail business, it’s time to start.
Mobile POS systems can assist you in converting sales, managing inventory and complete normal operational tasks with greater flexibility and efficiency.
Would performing inventory stock and cycle counts from an iPhone or iPad speed up your count times? Stock counts and cycle counts can be done quickly with mobile apps.
Would receiving new inventory from where the inventory was located, speed up how quickly your new products got out to the sales floor? Receiving and transfers can also easily be done with mobile apps.
Would you like the convenience of being able to sell your products at an event, sidewalk sale or any gathering away from your store?
These features benefit any retailer and if you are already using mobile devices in your business, you should be taking advantage of these features.
The iPhone is 10 years old this year and if you are not using mobile devices at your business, then it’s a great time to start.
