Whether designing your own mobile retail tablets or porting applications to an off-the-shelf solution, your guide to mobile retail solutions starts with the following:
Point of sale (POS)
Today’s POS systems are much more than sales transaction devices. They engage with shoppers and retail associates for everything from marketing and customer service to inventory management and pricing.
Walk into any store, hotel, airport, school, movie theatre, health club—you name it—and it’s likely you will encounter a digital display that is advertising a product, promoting a brand, providing you with directions, or even inviting you to step up and interact. That’s digital signage. Intel is making it easy for you to bring the most amazing digital signage solutions to your customers, starting with the following:
- Everything digital signage
- Turnkey retail digital signage solution
- Intelligent Pluggable System Specification (IPSS)
- Intel® Reference Design for Digital Signage (EL-10)
The Internet is accelerating the beat rate of innovation and transforming markets, not the least of which is the vending industry. One example of this is the emerging Internet of Things (IoT), which is taking today’s isolated systems and connecting them to the Internet, a trend that is already underway for vending machines.
