Understanding What True Technology Integration Enables for Retailers


The excitement that comes with deploying new technology into your retail stores is typically not derived from the actual act of installing a device, but comes from the vision of what this new technology will enable. When retailers integrate foundational technology elements that bring to life their desired in-store experience it becomes vitally important to have a strategic deployment plan. Having the voice of an experienced deployment service consultant to guide you through the process is key.


Many believe that when adopting new technology, the task of selecting the technology-type is the biggest step to conquer and it is often done independent of a fully vetted deployment plan. Understanding your business objectives and the required in-store interactions is imperative to successfully deploying new technology.


Having a set of shiny new front-end devices for your stores without a complete integration plan executed by experienced retail service providers is similar to purchasing a high-end sports car without any consultation around how to use or integrate all its’ features into your everyday life. The car looks awesome in your drive way, but you have no idea how idea how to maximize your driving experience. When you are making a significant investment in something that could significantly impact your business, it is just as important to solicit the expertise you need to properly integrate that item into your environment.


Technology sets the foundation for valuable interactions and transactions within the store. A service provider that has deep retail technology expertise and who truly understands your unique environment can significantly impact the long-term success of your business.
