San Diego, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/10/2019 --Through the use of smart retail solutions, brick-and-mortar stores are learning how to compete with e-commerce giants such as Amazon. Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology monitors customer activity in real-time, giving managers the ability to nurture leads more effectively.
Even though retail stores haven't physically changed much over the years, radical changes have occurred internally because of digital technology. Today's technology identifies buyers through their smartphone, making it easier for the retailer to provide personalized customer service.
Using smart store analytics, retail stores can improve customer engagement and customer experience by sending the right sales associate to the correct location at the right time. This the cornerstone of the smart store business model. Using smart technology to improve customer experience is a winning strategy to enhance customer loyalty and increase sales.
Making a Store Smarter
Accommodating consumer demands for new shopping experiences that give deeper insights into products, also known as engagement marketing, has become a retail trend. The key to making retail smarter is to connect all store and consumer touchpoints so that real-time monitoring is possible. The more the store engages with the customer, the more data is generated.
One way to win a consumers' heart is by offering a coupon via their smartphone. Retailers can deliver dynamic, customized content – a targeted relevant promotion – and encourage customers to interact immediately. Having access to real-time actionable data gives a store a competitive edge over others who aren't using smart technology.
Shopping Experience Matters
Memorable shopping experiences make for better conversions in a physical store. Retailers using real-time data can analyze the shopper's journey and study this data to determine how to increase sales.
One of the reasons shoppers still go to brick-and-mortar stores is because of the high-touch shopping experiences; the ability to see and touch products, the interaction between associate and shopper, an inspirational interactive shopping environment. Those shopping experiences make stores the best conversion tools. Smart retail solutions are part of or support the customer engagement – add to the high-touch shopping arsenal - and help retailers improve the customer shopping experience.
