Today’s tech savvy consumers are continually driving organizations to deliver a modernized shopping experience. To achieve this, retailers are pushing the edge on developing non-traditional ways in delivering sales messages. One of the best ways to engage shoppers with an in-store digital presence is through modern adaptive signages.
Modern signages enable two-way interaction between customers and businesses, tapping onto cutting-edge technologies such as sensors and analytics to respond to customer behavior—helping retailers customize content on the fly.

Cash may be popular with consumers, but it often presents challenges and extra costs for retailers. Manually handling, counting, reconciling and depositing cash every day, or multiple times a day, can be expensive. Smart safe technology and automated cash handling can help and benefit all areas of your business – from Finance to Operations to Loss Prevention – but, more importantly, your customers.
Read this eBook to learn the four key benefits of automated cash handling:
• Maximize your cash flow
• Gain more flexibility with open systems
• Reduce shrinkage and reconciliation
• Care for customers instead of counting cash
Even with the rise of digital payments, cash is still a popular form of payment. According to the Federal Reserve, consumers use cash to pay for nearly one-third of all retail transactions.
For many retailers, a completely "cashless society" is nowhere in sight. Cash management remains one of the most important aspects of managing a retail operation, particularly at quick service restaurants (QSRs) and convenience stores, where transactions are smaller and cash is a preferred method of payment. This white paper, Boost Profitability by Automating Cash, sponsored by Fiserv and Fast Casual, details the steps to manage cash properly and boost profit for your business.
Uncover the top reasons and flexible options to automate your cash management.
• Time savings
• Theft deterrence
• Higher accuracy
• Better customer service
• Real-time data
Does your current software give your business the visibility and flexibility you need to be responsive and competitive, or is outdated software negatively impacting business growth and excellent service?
The retail world is becoming more complex. eCommerce has grown in the U.S.—from $42 billion to $236 billion in the last decade*—and lifestyle shopping is raising customer expectations. Having the right retail management software solution—one that can keep up with your business needs and the increasing pace of technology—is critical.
Given the recent advancements in technology—and higher customer expectations—perhaps it’s time to ask if your retail management software is up to the task of nurturing and managing your growth over the coming decade.
Epicor has been a part of successful retail businesses for years. Here are some risks you may face from using outdated software:
1. Excessive labor costs and hiring gaps
2. Operational inefficiencies

Selecting the right software is an investment of time and money that can pay off with increased customer loyalty, more productive employees, and simpler business management.

1. Not involving the head of the organization in the decision-making process

3. Considering a technology partner that doesn’t truly understand your industry
4. Assuming you will do things exactly the same way you do things today
5. Selecting a vendor that lacks a long-term product vision

It is a sophisticated computer system that manages sensitive customer data in a public space, often accessible by a large number of employees, in addition to customers or anyone else in the area. Because of this, it’s a unique target for compromised data. Plus, it’s mission-critical nature means compromised systems can bring a business to a halt, resulting in lost business.

Small and midsize retailers around the world are seeing their businesses transform in a variety of ways. These firms, typically with fewer than 1,000 employees, have been transforming themselves as customers seek new types of engagement and as suppliers expect higher levels of efficiency and effectiveness. New business models and new competitors are changing the way retailers do business. Rather than simply react to new threats, successful retailers are leveraging technology in new ways to sharpen business practices, improve agility, and better serve customers while strengthening the role of retailers in the supply chain.
Through digital transformation including the effective engagement of the internet of things (IoT) to track inventory, the opportunity to maintain and gain competitive advantage can be significant.
The retail industry is changing slower than it ever will and faster than it ever has. And customer demands are evolving at speeds never seen before.

This challenge, perhaps best described as the perfect blend of art and science, is more than achievable, but only if you have the right partner. Which is why we want you to meet Leonardo, by SAP. SAP Leonardo is a digital innovation system that enables organizations of all sizes to transform at scale with minimal risk and disruption. SAP Leonardo brings new technologies and services together to help businesses power their digital transformation.
