As tablets and smartphones become the new data consumption devices, the onus is on Technology Solution providers to make data ‘consumption-ready’ for these devices.
The challenge here is to provide a seamless data-viewing experience across these multiple devices. For example, in a Point of Sale, a Re-order module requires heavier analytical capability than a Reporting module working on secondary data. Thus a rendering of Re-ordering module should be markedly different from that of Reporting module; more so across different consumption devices.
Why is this important to Me?
Because as a Retailer, you might view Reports from your smartphone, but the re-order would generally happen from your store’s server.
It’s time you move from a ‘save-data-and-view’ model to ‘open-data-and-view’ model. Don’t burden your smartphones and tablets (reducing their speed) with storing or downloading data. Just open data online, do the necessary Retail calculations and move hassle free.

That’s what data with a lighter footprint provides you with Ã¢â‚¬â€œ solutions to access data without storing it.
This is real retail freedom.
