  • How we got here – the evolution of retail and POS over the last few years and what this means
  • The customer is truly the center of the universe and has the power in her hands to directly influence her shopping experience
  • BRP surveys top retailers every year to understand the trends and initiatives driving retailers
  • Customers are going mobile - By the end of 2014 the mix of POS hardware will change tremendously – 55% of retailers expect customer-owned mobile devices to be one of their POS offerings
  • Customers are going mobile and here is why retailers are going mobile
  • Customers use their mobile devices to interact with friends, get advice on outfits, etc. – retailers need to also look at how they can offer tools for the customers to use to interact with associates or with their friends
  • As mobile becomes more important retailers are starting to see the importance of a centralized technology platform to truly offer an omni-channel experienceThe internet really started cross-channel shopping and now mobile is pushing it to new heights
  • Omni-channel services to optimize the customer’s shopping experience
  • There are still ways to enhance the experience – many retailers still cannot identify customers at the POS so how can they truly offer an omni-channel experience?
  • Again, retailers have opportunities to enhance the shopping experience for customers by providing information to associates to be able to tailor the shopping experience (like you find on Amazon!)
  • Next steps involve getting the customer information to the associates before the customer reaches the POS, thus helping to drive a more profitable transaction
