Mobile Solutions for Retail
Retailers can use iFactr for Retail in a wide variety of applications. Employees on the sales floor can use the device to interact with customers and to look up product information, availability, and configuration. Credit applications can be captured right on the device. Applications for scheduling can help with appointment management. The platform can also be used for kiosks, providing customers with access to product information, interactive functionality, videos, and other features.
Certain types of retailers where mobile point-of-sale applications are appropriate, iFactr for Retail can be used to process transactions right from the sales floor or in overflow scenarios where checkout lanes are full and there aren’t enough fixed point-of-sale terminals in the store. Barcode scanners can also be used for a wide variety of retail processes, workflows, and use cases.
For systems that aren’t necessarily customer-facing, apps providing dashboards, reports, alerting, and other critical business information can provide significant value. Applications can be used to aid with planogramming. Inspection processes, survey capture, data collection, and similar workflows can easily be moved from paper to the iPad, and barcode scanners can also provide significant value in many of these types of applications.
Customer-facing apps are becoming a norm in the industry, and iFactr for Retail can power those applications as well. Giving customers access to product information, availability, promotions, store locations, shopping carts, and even checkout capability can provide both a good marketing channel as well as a strong return on investment for customer self-service.
With iFactr, your mobile retail applications can be delivered as native apps running on the device for iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone, Windows Mobile, Windows XP/Vista/7 Classic-style, Windows 8 Metro-style, or running on the server as HTML5 delivered in a browser or part of a hybrid PhoneGap application.
