By moving freely around a store, staff can give a more personalised service - checking virtual real-time inventory and pricing, accelerating checkout and eliminating queues. Mobile POS should bring increased revenue, through additional units per transaction and the elimination of line abandonment. The patented technology, powered by Global Bay Mobile Technologies, is available on smart mobile devices running on Apple, Windows and Windows CE. It scans numerous barcodes, takes debit and credit card payments and updates Futura's merchandising information, in virtual real time.
Also being demonstrated is Futura's business intelligence tool Analyser, which greatly simplifies analysis and reporting, making managers more productive. It gives reports on customer analysis, supplier, branch and new product performance enabling managers to respond faster to sales trends, profit maximisation and stock optimisation.
Ian Royall, Managing Director of Futura Retail Solutions, said: "Software providers need to help retailers provide better, more personalised service to their customers. Whether it's through Mobile POS, analysis of customer trends or a tailored email offering, customer satisfaction is what's important. We always aim to develop and expand our offering, while keeping it affordable allowing retailers to improve customer services, optimise stock and cut costs."
