Both consumers and retailers prefer mobile POS solutions
Smartphones and tablets are infiltrating consumers' daily lives, allowing them to complete a variety of tasks from anywhere and at anytime. Now, retail brands are joining in on the trend by adopting these devices to keep their operations running. One way in which merchants are using the gadgets is to provide customers with a reliable and fast point of sale solution.
Mobile Payments Today reported that, according to the Local Commerce Monitor from BIA/Kelsey, 40 percent of companies said they currently accept mobile payments. In addition, 16 percent of respondents stated they have plans to adopt mobile POS technology throughout the next year.
Retail Digital wrote that new POS systems could pave the way for a new retail experience. Giving shoppers the ability to pay with their mobile devices or allow them to purchase items from anywhere on the sales floor not only brings in more revenue for merchants, but also contributes to higher customer satisfaction and retention.
For retailers that want to improve patron loyalty and boost sales, implementing POS solutions that offer quick and streamlined transactions is one of the best strategies for accomplishing these goals.
