BOISE, Idaho & Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) April 02, 2012
CradlePoint, a leader in enterprise connectivity, today announced its participation in the 2012 Advanced Commerce & Mobile Retail Services Summit (RAMP). During the conference held in Chicago, April 2-4, CradlePoint will help guide the discussion with both a corporate presence and its hosting of a panel discussion surrounding point of sale (POS) success stories: “How Retailers and Restaurants Are Changing Their Game At the Point of Sale.” Hosted by CradlePoint’s Vice President of Business Development Ken Hosac, the panel will discuss the impact, pervasiveness, and key trends of how retailers and restaurants are using mobile retail services to improve the customer experience and drive business at the point of sale.
CradlePoint will leverage its growing market presence as the industry’s preferred 3G/4G wireless solution provider for the distributed enterprise to help champion the use of wireless. Retailers with multiple locations must support operational and transactional data, as well as support customer-facing applications like kiosks, digital signage, and mobile devices which customers have come to expect as part of the shopping experience. In addition to serving as a wireless primary connection, CradlePoint solutions can also be used to provide a wireless backup connection to a retailer’s existing wired line. In this case, retailers avoid lost revenue and a negative customer experience with the assurance that their mission critical applications, including transactional, will stay online if the primary wired connection is disrupted.
Mr. Hosac and the panel of customers will touch on the following topics:
- Leveraging POS systems to create a more intimate bond with their consumers
- Integrating instant gratification rewards into the POS
- Implementing a highly customized POS and rolling out an advanced remote management system
- Leveraging tablets to create a more engaging customer experience
- Leveraging a scan-based customer identification system to better understand the voice of the customer
- Trials, pitfalls, and success stories of POS back-end integration
- Next steps to implementing a successful wireless strategy within retail
