Retail Mobility: A Key Necessity
The pace of technology for mobility has been growing exponentially in recent years. Hundreds of millions of devices are being used across the world and are in the hands of nearly every business professional and consumer. These converged devices not only send and receive calls, email and instant messages but also run applications that access remote servers. Riding the phenomenal popularity of the Apple iPhone, Google’s Android platform and other smartphones, they are in every pocket and purse of the workforce. As a result, these mobile devices and their supporting technologies are changing how retail works, in some cases so rapidly that retailers are in danger of being left in the dust.
