The Internet of Things (IoT) has revolutionized the retail industry, providing retailers with a competitive edge over their rivals. With IoT technology, it's easier than ever to leverage data analytics and improve your operations, from payment processing to delivery and security.
KEEP YOUR RETAIL BUSINESS CONNECTED
What exactly does IoT for retail look like? It involves gathering real-time data through sensors (connected via the Internet) and using these to make informed business decisions. Adopting IoT solutions in a retail space will allow you to streamline customer experiences and create a more efficient supply chain for your business.
POND IoT offers next-level connectivity solutions to increase safety and add an additional layer of redundancy and flexibility at an affordable price.
CONNECTED PAYMENT SYSTEMS
One of the most essential parts of any retail industry is simple, and continuous payment processing. Using IoT-enables payment terminals and Point of Sale (PoS) systems makes it simple for customers to pay with their credit and debit cards for a quick, painless checkout process. With access to the three largest networks in the US, you'll have no problem keeping your devices online without interruption.
Mobile or portable ATM machines are another solution you can take advantage of with an IoT connectivity solution. You can offer mobile ATM services, enabling customers to withdraw cash on the go. Having this solution provides additional flexibility and convenience to customers while increasing revenue.
BACKUP INTERNET FOR YOUR DEVICES
Having a reliable backup Internet connection is critical to your retail locations. With a Failover solution, you can ensure all your devices, including PoS systems, remain online even in the event of an Internet outage. A backup Internet connection kicks in when your primary network goes down. This helps reduce downtime, minimize disruptions to business operations, and improve overall customer satisfaction.
TRACK ITEMS TO DELIVERY
IoT technology also allows item tracking from deployment to delivery, ensuring timely and efficient delivery to customers. With IoT-enabled tracking, you may monitor delivery conditions, locations, and specific delivery times, and even test out various vendors and routes to determine the most effective framework for the business. Having connectivity on the road also allows your drivers to collect payment using mobile payment terminals along their routes, making it convenient for customers and optimizing your operations by saving time on transactions.
IoT technology guarantees increased security for your stores. By incorporating cellular connectivity, you can ensure that all devices remain connected even in locations where there is no support for fiber. This ensures security systems remain operational, reducing the risk of theft and break-ins, and helping customers and employees feel safe and secure.
