Storis showcases new technology at High Point Market
September 29, 2017,
MT ARLINGTON, N.J., – Storis will showcase their all new Kiosk solution, which brings a key component of in-store technology to home furnishings retailers, at the upcoming High Point Market.
Consumers are actively seeking out kiosks as a digital experience in brick and mortar retail. Industry.org states that “studies show an average of 7% increase in incremental sales when kiosks are added. Compelling investment returns also include improved customer experience and reduced inventory costs.”
The Storis Kiosk’s core functionality will be to catalog a retailer’s inventory, access customer history and most importantly, unify the Storis shopping cart. The solution integrates seamlessly to the company's ERP and eSTORIS eCommerce platform.
Technology has always been important to retail stores, but the Kiosk provides a shift from traditional and mobile POS solutions. Storis has designed their Kiosk to be the bridge between the at-home and traditional in-store technology experiences. As research proves, customers first start engaging with retailers through their website in their homes. When they do decide to shop that product in-store, the Kiosk allows them to pick up right where they left off.
To start the in-store buying experience, the sales person can view a customer’s cart selection with them in an engaging manner. This helps the sales person focus in on the customer’s desired price points and styles. From there they can guide the shopping experience to a seamless close. The sales person can also access the customer’s cart on a mobile POS tablet when moving around the showroom, with data updating from the Kiosk, in real-time.
Additionally, the concept of the endless aisle is an inventory strategy being driven by consumer demand. Using a kiosk within a showroom vignette highlights additional options available to the consumer. This allows retailers to sell more with less inventory on hand, digitizing the traditional catalog experience.
“We brought Kiosks into our booth several markets ago because they allow our retail visitors to do exactly what customers in-store want to do; interact with the technology themselves. We’ve demonstrated our retail and e-commerce solutions before, but this October those Kiosks will be showcasing our new Kiosk solution now available to our retailers,” says Donnie Surdoval, product manager.
