For overworked small to medium-sized retailers, juggling a bricks and mortar outlet with an online shop can feel like an uphill battle.
Dividing time between both aspects of in-store and online sales can deliver a constant sense of robbing Peter to pay Paul and some retailers could be forgiven for focusing on just one sales channel.
And with the Internet being a fast moving and scary prospect, too often it’s their online presence that is neglected. After all, footfall on the shop floor and cash in the till can seem more "real" than ecommerce website traffic and SEO statistics, along with juggling stock levels across each sales channel.
However modern retail businesses can't afford to do adopt this attitude, because:
- 54% shopped multi-channel in the recent Black Friday weekend.
- 77% of adults have bought a product online.
- in a recent PwC study 70% researched online and then bought in-store.
By using a combined point of sale system (ePOS system) and ecommerce system, you can get on top of both in-store and online sales. You can manage and replenish your stock easily, get your products to market quickly and become an efficient multi-channel retailer enabling your retail business to thrive.
