Businesses helped with retail sector changes using Machine-to-Machine solutionsMarketing Release – With the utilisation of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) solutions, businesses are being helped to respond to challenges in real-time as the retail sector changes.

The daily efficiency of a business’ operations can be improved by using M2M technology. M2M solutions offer businesses with real-time data, which can offer visibility throughout the supply chain, in turn, reducing costs across the business.

There are three ways a business can adapt to changes in the retail sector:

  1. Deliver a more personal service
  2. Create a better shopping experience
  3. Increase operational efficiency

By being able to understand the shopping habits of the customer, businesses can get the upper hand against the competition, and reach out to their customers better.

It’s vital for a business to meet the needs of the customer. The customer needs to be able to find the goods they want quickly and efficiently for a high-quality shopping experience.

To increase the operational efficiency of a business, it’s essential that businesses keep track of their energy and fuel costs, as well as other expenses. This can be done through a supply chain, and what is also known as the Internet of Things (IOT).

A M2M Retail Insight guide has been published by Vodafone, which explores the solutions that M2M can deliver to the retail sector. This can be downloaded here.
