How to improve your store performance in the run-up to the holiday season

As we enter the busiest shopping period of the year, retailers must be prepared, as this period can make or break the overall success of the retail year. This holiday season underscores the importance for retailers to embrace modern in-store technology to meet today’s omnichannel demands.

Are you geared to embrace modern in-store technology and meet today’s omnichannel demands? Stores that continue to rely on legacy systems will quickly get overtaken by retailers who have adopted next-generation tech to offer an elevated customer experience and streamline business processes.

Wondering why?

In the holiday season, the retail landscape sees both highs and lows. Increased revenue is certain, but so is the crowded competition. The pivotal question becomes, ‘How do I differentiate and deliver a seamless customer experience amid heightened competition?’

Robust, adaptable retail store systems are essential in managing transactions, delivering loyalty offers, and tailoring the shopping experience to boost overall store revenue.

The benefits of a modern retail store system

Elevate in-store customer experience with Enactor Mpos

1. Elevate the in-store customer experience


Customer experience is vital! It’s a key factor in increasing your in-store sales. Your customers don’t want to wait a long time for an associate to assist them or stand in a long queue to checkout. Modern shoppers want speed and convenience. Therefore, stores need to operate on a modern store system that can support multiple in-store POS devices including fixed POS and mobile POS to make checking out a seamless process.

2. Next-level Self-Checkout experience


With modern SCO services, customers can complete their transactions independently to speed up the shopping process. The challenge here for retailers is to offer the same in-store personalised promotions at the fixed POS to customers using Self-Checkout. This is where a Unified Commerce platform like Enactor can enable a retailer to deliver a seamless customer experience across multiple locations, devices and channels.

3. Personalised promotions


Customers love promotions and offers, especially when they are personalised. So how can retailers personalise offers? Retailers need to follow a customer’s digital footprint using the clienteling feature of a modern POS, the retailer can gain a 360° view of the customer and be able to store data about the customer preferences, behaviour and purchases to establish a long-term relationship.

4. Inventory Management


Customers need fast delivery. They are even willing to pay extra to receive their orders on the same day. To optimise delivery, retailers require a single pool of inventory where customers can view real-time inventory and place orders, return or exchange items from anywhere. It’s also important to be able to transfer stock from one store to another. In addition, by offering a next-level endless-aisle solution for customers, you’d not just impress customers but save your lost sales too.

2. Headless commerce architecture to enable rapid change
