    Location-based messaging that goes beyond in-store couponing

    Location-based mobile technologies like beacons and other in-store tools have been growing in popularity among retailers—and for good reason. However, shoppers spend most of their time outside of stores.

    Consulting firm Deloitte predicts that digital interactions will influence 50% of in-store sales by the end of 2014, up from 36% in 2013. Thus, a retailer whose mobile app isn’t engaging shoppers outside the store is missing opportunities to build loyalty and drive sales.

    The Final Steps
    New technology and services help retailers fulfill orders faster and at lower costs

    Online shoppers expect their orders to reach them on time, every time and without any errors, regardless of whether orders are shipped across town, across the country or internationally. A mistake made during any stage of the fulfillment or delivery process can risk a retailer a customer's loyalty, or worse, a lost sale and expensive return.

    Raising the bar on fulfillment requires investing in technology that adds agility, speed and dependability to warehouse operations, while keeping down operating and delivery costs. It's a juggling act that involves keeping several balls in the air at once, such as warehouse management tools and carrier relationships. Drop one ball, even momentarily, and retailers are at risk of failing to accurately pick, pack and ship orders to meet consumers' expectations for speedy delivery.
