Companies need to incorporate advanced technologies such as data analytics and cloud to attract new-age retailers, finds Frost & Sullivan
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — The rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) has caused a sea change in the buying patterns of customers and, by extension, the market strategies of retailers. E-commerce and m-commerce have virtually transformed every store into a distribution center and retailers need to adopt technologies such as radio frequency identification (RFID), videos, cameras, and data analytics to keep track of inventory in each outlet and, eventually, enhance customer experience management.
“Retailers are looking to empower their mobile workforce to enrich customers’ purchase experience, and this will augment investments in technologies such as handheld readers and smart point-of-sale (PoS) solutions,” said Ram Ravi, Industry Analyst for Industrials at Frost & Sullivan. “RFID sales will get a further boost from the intensifying focus on loss prevention, inventory management, and customer behavior analysis.”
