Deeper integration of the mobile POS into the retail supply chain will transform the in-store shopping experience
BURLINGTON, Mass. and NEW YORK, Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- attune Consulting, a premier global solutions provider to the fashion and lifestyle industries, today shared the top four technology advances to expect from retail mobile point of sale (POS) solutions over the next 12-18 months.
According to research from IHL Group, mobile in retail is now a $5.7 billion business worldwide and one that continues to grow rapidly. Retailers have embraced mobile POS solutions as a way to extend the reach of their in-store POS and engage with shoppers. However, these solutions remain in the "show and tell" phase, offering only limited information about products available in the store and the ability to scan and purchase those items.
Over the next 12-18 months, retailers can expect to offer a richer, more personalized omnichannel shopping experience through their mobile POS deployments. The emergence of new platform-agnostic solutions, along with deeper integration of the mobile POS to backend enterprise systems tied into the supply chain, will enable retailers to transform the physical store shopping experience and deliver:
"The true power of the mobile POS will come when it becomes an extension of the global retail supply chain, rather than being deployed as an extension of the store cash register," said Verlin Youd, regional director, Americas at attune. "By leveraging the mobile POS to connect what happens on the store floor to developments downstream at the factory or farm level – where products are sourced and manufactured – retailers with physical storefronts will have an opportunity to differentiate their services in a highly competitive market."
These viewpoints are based on attune's years of experience working with many of the world's most recognized fashion and lifestyle brands to deploy technology and service offerings that address all areas of their operations – from product design through manufacturing to the retail store.
