With consumers increasingly turning to ecommerce and web-to-store shopping, brick-and-mortar stores utilizing cloud technology to ensure their associates have the right information at the right moment will have an edge on their competition. When in-store associates can match competitor’s prices, show the latest catalogue at a touch or create a unique shopping experience for top shoppers, they’re keeping mobile-savvy customers happy. But collaboration benefits don’t stop there. With cloud applications, a retailer can keep inventory more visible and reliable, work with its advertising agency to build a campaign, and share up-to-the-minute information with all of its stakeholders – that includes everything from a new store design to images of the latest pair of Jimmy Choo shoes. Understanding these strategies and how to put them in place is critical for engaging customers and keeping them “in the aisles.”
