New Retail Technology Trends Drive More Nationwide Rollouts

Share Article

Successful nationwide rollouts require a stable and steadfast electrical and database infrastructure.

Businesses, both small and large, are gaining an edge over their competition by using new retail technology and digital signage advertising networks to help them meet the needs of customers, while increasing brand awareness. Retail stores, like Wal-Mart, and grocery chains, including Albertsons and Kroger, are setting technology trends by installing point of sale, digital signage and self service kiosks in their multiple locations throughout the nation.

A study titled The Opportunity for Networked Displays and In-Store TV, published by InfoTrends/CAP Ventures, reports that previous sales of retail hardware, software, installation and integration services and support for all commercial display applications totaled nearly $1.7 billion in 2004, and are expected to demonstrate a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) in excess of 25 percent over the next five years.

In-store technology and digital signage has taken hold of the United States retail and restaurant markets and has produced positive marketing and sales' results, yet rolling out such a campaign can be a daunting process. According to Tim Lawler of McBride M-Power Nationwide, the most common pitfall for companies deploying new technology platforms is failing to adequately define the project's scope and goals including electrical and data infrastructure support.
