Retailers strive hard to keep their consumers engaged for long. Today, this is the biggest challenge for them. The key factor that gives retailer’s an edge over others is differentiation and value in goods/services. It is not always practical to have the most competitive prices with round the year sales and discounts. What retailers need to have a look at is the operational dependencies and try to simplify them with latest technologies that will help them gear up for the near future and next generation consumers.
Cloud is simple, easy and straightforward to use. A lot has been said about it in the last couple of years. We have also seen the recent trend of many big and small retail businesses moving their entire operations to the cloud. So, then the question arises why so many stores are switching to Cloud computing?
1. Fixed and Predictable Costs
The retailer has the choice of ‘Pay as you go’ rather than investing large capital that can cripple the cash flow. You can get the exact re-sources needed and manage the demands of business by scaling up or down as required.
2. Flawless Order processing
Automated processing of orders and at the same time updating the accounts and inventory control system spreadsheet is a great plus point for accurate records. Retailers will know when to re-order and customer support will have all the information in-store for serving customer queries.
3. Multi-store & Multi-device
A retailer can manage and track the day-to-day business from multiple stores or multiple locations. The concept of anytime and anywhere operations becomes a reality with cloud computing.
4. Faster roll-out of applications
Today, technology upgrades and changes are faster than changes in fashion trends. Retailers can be moving and running quickly with a switch to the cloud. Compared to traditional on-premise applications, they would not be dependent on new hardware, servers or operating system software.
Security and compliance are top priorities of any cloud vendor. Every business counts on higher levels of security and with the cloud, even a small retailer can enjoy the benefits of security without paying high costs.
With all said and done, SaaS software solutions for retailers need to be affordable. They should have integrated online Point-of-sale(POS) and many more features such as Mobile applications. It will become a necessity soon as people are keen to start functioning or switching their operations on to cloud computing. For organizations, client retention and engagement would be much easier as everything could be efficiently managed on the web. This would also differentiate their operations and add more value to their goods/services.
