Stay connected to the store and process transactions anywhere on the shop floor, anytime
Nowadays, retail on mobile devices has two broad connotations. On one hand, it has transformed how consumers shop; on the other, it has enabled retailers to offer better customer service. In addition to this, mobile technology is a tool that retailers use today for faster business expansion.
iVend Retail Management Suite meets these two broad ends of the spectrum with as many features to end-consumers as to the retailers.
The iVend Mobile POS enables retailers to turn any iPad/iPhone or Android phone/tablet into a fully-functional Point-of-Service. Retailers can use iVend Mobile POS as a mainstream alternative to traditional POS terminals to optimise investments made in expensive retail real- estate. The application is also used by retailers to quickly add additional check-out terminals during festive seasons and rush hours.
iVend Mobile POS has been designed so that it can either connect to the in-store server over a WiFi network, OR directly to the Head Office server over a 3G/4G/LTE connection. This ability allows a retailer to expand the business much faster. It offers a retailer agility to switch to Cloud and avoid investing in expensive IT Infrastructure while opening store at a new location. Opening additional stores has never been this easy.
In unforeseen events, where the network connectivity between the POS and the in-store server/Head Office server breaks, iVend Mobile POS with its native database ensures business continuity. The application allows the retailer to continue business as usual and ensures data integrity when the connection is restored.
Retailers who deployed Mobility in the form of iVend Mobile have already registered positive results. The experience of a major sports goods retailer with their iVend Mobile POS deployment is typical of this trend, where their results included reduced labour units, increased basket size and raised customer satisfaction levels.
