New, connected shopping environments combine the mobile and social experience while leveraging changes in payment methods. With advances in wireless, power, optics, and miniaturization technologies, retailers make it easier to buy with smarter incentives, informed decision making, and more convenient fulfillment through an omnichannel strategy.
Omnichannel means servicing a customer in their preferred mode — in store, online with home delivery, and online with in-store pick-up or at an automated retail location. For example, near-field communications can trigger a display of targeted discounts or be used to process a payment. Robotic systems can monitor inventory, store compliance, and pricing as well as retrieve and deliver stock to a shelf, a counter, or a residence. The consumer can instantly share their shopping experience with friends. The connected product itself can communicate, perhaps enabling remote operation or reporting a need for refills. Data and related analytics are key to identify and track customer behavior and preferences, and ensure accurate pricing and inventory availability at the point of fulfillment.
