RETAIL AUTOMATION SOLUTIONS free webcast series A U T O M A T I N G THE O P E R A T I O N AUTOMATING THE OPERATION Register Today for This On-Demand Webcast Independent grocers have access to incredibly powerful technology and well-established interconnection standards, all of which are very affordable. What is missing for many independent grocers is not access to powerful technology, but the mindset that technology is only as good as the task that it replaces. An important question every independent grocer should ask is: What tasks within the operation can be automated and better handled by store and/or supplier systems? During this free webcast, our expert panel discusses how automation can be applied to retail operations to drive eff ciencies and prof ts. Topics will include: • In-store automation trends, including cloud-based technology and how it is driving increasingly sophisticated solutions • The redirection of labor to more value-added services • Leveraging data interchange for greater collaboration between retailers and suppliers • Enhancing digital marketing communications, including promotions, loyalty programs, social media, and hassle-free digital coupons • Applying automation to the reduction of stock outs, reducing lost sales, increasing customer satisfaction and driving customer demand • Computer-assisted ordering and inventory management • The front end: automating the checkout experience by utilizing new point of sale technology to transform the customer experience.
