Industry experts agree that now is the time for retailers to invest in mobile. “Gartner research shows that retailers are extremely interested in mobile POS as a way to transform the check-out experience,” said Jeff Roster, Research Vice President, Gartner, in an Oracle press release. “As one of the four transformational forces that Gartner has defined as part of its Nexus of Forces research, mobility, including mobile POS, will be a key area for experimentation and investment for retailers going forward.”
For retailers already using Oracle Retail Stores Solutions, Oracle Retail Mobile POS leverages these applications to enable store personnel to check in-store inventory, look up product information, activate gift cards, print or email receipts and suspend transactions for completion at the register.
Additionally, Oracle Retail Mobile POS has a scalable and flexible architecture that allows any combination of fixed and mobile checkout points.
“Oracle Retail Mobile POS provides the flexibility to serve customers on their terms,” noted Mike Webster, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Oracle Retail. “By providing store associates with a consistent transaction interface and delivering actionable insights at any point of service, we help retailers level the playing field between store associates and digitally enabled customers. Oracle Retail Mobile POS provides an integrated and scalable architecture for retailers to create differentiated customer interactions.”
