Posted by Courtney Foster on Oct 14, 2015 10:00:00 AM

As the holiday season approaches, it is important for retailers to be prepared to keep up with the crowds and the tech savvy demands of consumers. Utilizing mobile point-of-sale (POS) is a great way to meet these needs and ultimately provide a seamless shopping experience from beginning to end. There are many benefits to using an integrated mobile POS solution in your retail store including fast checkout, customer engagement and much more.

Prior to the holiday shopping season, it is important for retailers to invest in secure, reliable point-of-sale software that provides exceptional mobile POS functionalities in order to fully enhance the shopping experience for your customers.  With mobile POS, you can:

  • Improve customer service
  • Track inventory
  • Sell from anywhere
  • Email receipts
  • Check-out customers quickly
  • Offer discounts and promotions
  • Promote customer engagement

Mobile commerce is a great opportunity for retailers to provide meaningful customer service beyond the check-out line. Long lines and large crowds can often cause chaos within retail stores. Mobile POS addresses both of these potential issues. More shoppers often lead to more inquires about products, sales, etc. Having your store associates pull product and inventory data in aisle right from the mobile POS will help engage these busy shoppers. Your associates can also check out customers in aisle to alleviate long lines at checkout.

Additionally, if you’re hosting a seasonal promotional event, mobile POS can be utilized without the need for retailers to set up full-sized cash registers. By utilizing exceptional mobile technology, you can sufficiently manage your retail store and serve your customers quickly. 

It is important to establish an efficient digital engagement strategy now in order to avoid potential drawbacks that may occur and to meet the ever-changing needs of your customers all season long.
