Over the last few years, there’s no doubt that the need for an online store is critical to retailers being able to meet consumer demands, compete effectively, and grow their sales beyond their retail locations. A critical challenge for this industry is that the modern point-of-sale (POS) systems that retailers invested in were built for retail sales – not for e-commerce.
Simultaneously, innovative e-commerce platforms launched online enabled direct-to-consumer experiences that enabled anyone to sell online… but they lacked the necessary features to accommodate retail sales via a POS.
With growth comes these challenges:
- Poor inventory management – wasting time manually inputting data cross-platform.
- Lost revenue opportunities – incorrect inventory counts impact revenue.
- Reduced customer frustration – ability to enable accurate inventory for buying online or store pickup.
