Retail Technology Solutions
Managed IT services for Retail that enable a fully immersive customer experience through innovative, diverse, and dynamic solutions, with customer care at the core
Customer experience across the Retail sector is continually evolving to meet consumer expectations
and adapt to behavioural changes, both on and offline. Exponential-e provides the technological foundation for tomorrow’s smart shops, delivering an end-to-end solution architecture for your organisation and service excellence for your customers.
Bringing together people,
processes, and technology in a rapidly evolving sector
With convenience dominating customers’ buying habits, the expectation on retail experiences are higher than ever before. Seamless, timely and personalised, one-to-one experiences are enhanced by innovative client-facing technologies and underpinned by robust infrastructure, which provides customers with a desired store environment whilst allowing staff to deliver excellent customer service.
A strong brand depends on unforgettable experiences across every channel, whether the customer prefers to shop in-store, shop online, or click-and-collect. Fulfilling these customer needs in an effective and convenient manner is dependent on integrated solutions across the retail technology ecosystem to enable maximum customer engagement and satisfaction across every channel, as well as providing efficient workflows for staff.
More customer data is generated hour-by-hour than ever before, which offers retailers rich opportunities to better understand customer behaviour. This can then be used to ensure knowledgeable staff are equipped with everything they need to provide a seamless experience and welcoming ambience through personalised touchpoints.
As customers expect an increasingly high level of social responsibility from retailers, the ability to offer them complete peace of mind in this area is essential. By implementing zero-touch solutions and significantly reducing energy usage through Cloud transformation and green data centre technology, you can ensure consumer confidence and help achieve your CSR goals.
With shoppers embracing mobile payments, and a higher amount of sensitive data shared on a daily basis than ever before, it’s crucial for your customers’ and organisation’s data to remain secure as you grow and diversify your offering, in order to strengthen your brand and build customer loyalty.
