Customer Engagement Begins with an Associate-Friendly POS
David Crist, President of Brother Mobile Solutions, notes: “Today’s retailing environment is all about customer engagement and making the store shopping experience as satisfying as possible. In the store, it starts with the retail associate. We are excited to work closely with Retail Pro at NRF 16 as together, our companies offer a first-hand look at associate-friendly POS software and mobile printers designed specifically to empower retail associates to deliver a seamless transaction from virtually anywhere in the store.”
He continued, “It’s critical that retailers don’t underestimate the value of the right mobile POS and label printer in supporting an optimum shopping experience. While printing may be a final detail in the POS scenario and receipt options are expanding, a printed receipt is still a core requirement. When evaluating a mobile POS solution retailers must keep the associate in mind. That requires a next-gen mobile printing solution that is simple to use, intuitive and feature rich with advanced connectivity and interoperability. Associate-friendly is the next big thing in mobile retail, and we’re delivering it right now.”
Kerry Lemos, CEO of Retail Pro International adds, “In today’s competitive market, it’s critical for retailers to gain a holistic understanding of their customers so they can help them transform chaos into the retail reality they want to achieve. With the right tools for an improved customer experience, nothing is impossible. That is why we are pleased to work with Brother Mobile Solutions at NRF to demonstrate innovations in POS software and mobile printing.”
