Mobile point-of-sale (POS) applications are becoming an all-in-one solution for retailers across the U.S. With it, consumers are better equipped to make intelligent buying decisions while leveraging time for your staff. If you haven’t yet incorporated mobile POS into your retail chain, here are five unique features you don’t want to miss out on.
- Ring Up Customers Anywhere, Anytime
No need to keep customers standing anxiously in a check-out line. Instead, your wandering staff can refer to a tablet for payment procedures, should a customer decide they’re ready to make a purchase. By checking out from anywhere within the store, you boost customer satisfaction and increase profits.
- Real-Time Updates on Inventory
Ever been told to “check the back” for an item no longer on your shelves? With a POS system, you can punch in a product SKU to determine how many you have available and in what types or sizes in your particular branch. Better yet, there’s no lag time.
- Instantly Repair Data Errors
Nothing brightens store management’s day like a return customer. With your mobile POS’ customer information system, you can keep track of their purchasing history and make appropriate recommendations according to their preferences. Should any information come up incorrect, you can review and correct them on the spot.
- Find Whatever You’re Looking For
Whether looking up a product, customer, or staff member, your mobile POS’ smart search features and filters will help you find what you’re looking for in a matter of seconds.
- Facilitate Store Transfers
If a customer is seeking a product you don’t currently have in-store, you can perform a real-time lookup of inventories from other branches, redirecting your customer elsewhere or requesting an immediate transfer.
How Mobile Shoppers Engage on Social Media
If your local business isn’t active on social media, you’re likely missing out on thousands of customers. Perhaps the most popular platform for social media shopping, Instagram is an image-forward network that 70% of customers consult for product discovery. With the newly-launched Instagram Checkout feature, you can link up your mobile POS app and double your sales.
Facebook is another platform most eCommerce businesses will leverage as a supplementary digital store. Here, you can update customers on new and re-stocked products, sell directly from your page, manage orders and shipping, and build your brand from the ground-up.
Instead of having to ring up your store, consumers can simply trigger a Messenger conversation to ask about stock, prices, and customer service-related queries.
On social media, you can provide enhanced services and deliver better results than you would using traditional funnels.
