Retail solutions from Microsoft
The Internet of Things – in which billions of “things” can be connected and communicate with each other – could be a game changer for the retail industry, giving retail enterprises the tools and insights to transform their business.
While billions of things can be connected, where should you start? The Internet of Things starts with your things. What matters to your business matters the most. It starts by building on the infrastructure you already have in place, using familiar devices and services in new ways, and combining the data you are already collecting to ultimately help you make better-informed business decisions.
An intelligent system built on trusted Microsoft technologies enables you to take advantage of the Internet of Your Things. With an intelligent system, you can take customer service to the next level by enabling a more personal, seamless and differentiated shopping experience. Whether offering faster service with mobile point-of-service (POS) systems, or providing targeted promotions and information on kiosks and digital signage, your customers benefit from deep integration between these industry devices and your IT infrastructure. In the back office, you’ll streamline inventory and purchasing, reduce costs, and manage devices and data collection with a secure, connected Microsoft intelligent system. Create an industry-compliant solution based on Windows Embedded, and you’ll realize the untapped potential of your business data, and the competitive edge that comes from providing the best in customer service.
