6 Ways To Use Tablet Tech in Retail
Digital systems are nothing new in the retail environment, but brands are still experimenting in order to find the most productive applications or their business. That being said, there isn’t any one solution that’s right for everybody—different brands and different locations can use tablet tech to address their own unique objectives. If you’re thinking about going beyond signage adding tablets to your retail environment and catching up to the competition, with an iPad stand, Android wall mount, or any other tablet solution, here’s a list of six different ways retailers can use an Armodilo-cased tablet to reinforce your consumer-brand relationship:
1. A Point-of-Sale Tablet Display Stand
Maybe the most obvious, a tablet POS stand is an effective way to capture a sale that may have been lost. An AURA tablet stand can easily be positioned at strategic points in your store, and the changeable graphic skin helps you showcase specific campaigns—and keep your displays looking fresh.
2. In-Store Navigation
A tablet display kiosk can be used to help your customers navigate your store if you have a large space. You can have a dynamic map created to direct customers to specific areas in your store, highlight promotions, and create a unique shopping experience. We recommend using a Tilt or a Floor tablet enclosure for this application.
3. Customer Data Capture
Data is a priceless commodity in business. If you’re looking to capture contact information like email addresses and phone numbers, or you have a more complicated system in place to capture data from your customers, an on-brand tablet case can help create the right impression and influence whether or not your customer is going to interact with your application. Our Sphere desktop enclosures can be customized to reflect your brand and help you capture that data you need.
4. Customer-Brand Engagement
Any opportunity to reinforce your brand and create an experience with your customer, your end-user, should be taken advantage of. Any one of our tablet display holders can work with your application to create a stronger brand impression, but the AURA display stand features a large graphic surface that can be used to reinforce your branding. Don’t neglect the opportunity that tablet tech gives you to engage with your consumers on your own terms.
5. Employee Management
A very practical application for tablet tech is in employee management. Keep track of schedules, clock employees in and out, and provide training are just some of the ways that tablets can work with your employees. To prevent damage or theft, tablet enclosures like the Surface or Tilt are an excellent choice for this application.
6. Product-Specific Applications
Teach customers about a specific product, present a fitting or a style guide, or get creative with an iPad kiosk stand. Showrooming used to be a dirty word in retail, but now it’s a reality. If customers are coming to your location to research a specific product, you should be taking advantage of the fact and selling them on your products and services. Our various tablet enclosures are perfect for in store product information and guides. Choose the one that’s best suited for your specific requirements.
Really, these are just a few of the ways tablet tech can be incorporated into your stores. Get creative. Develop a custom-built application or show off your mobile site—it’s up to you. But don’t leave your tablets open to theft or damage, and remember that whatever your objective, you’re going to be creating an experience when you inject tablet tech into your retail business strategy, and Armodilo can help make that experience efficient and on-brand.
And don’t forget about our exclusive Tablet Fit Kit system, which helps extend the lifespan of your tablet enclosure and boost your ROI.
