3 Ways High-Performing Mobility Optimizes the Discount Store Experience

Posted August 17, 2021

Customer expectations have shifted drastically, reshaping today’s storefronts to deliver faster service, consistent product availability, and bolstered customer satisfaction. As a result, retail-ready technologies must now work harder and faster to keep storefronts ahead of demands. Complex workflows can no longer be tolerated, which is why high-demand storefronts such as discount stores are equipping their teams with enterprise-ready mobile devices. As part of an end-to-end mobility solution, next-generation mobility can increase worker performance and meet high demand without overwhelming store associates.

Turning mobility into profitability

Designed to sustain productivity in fast-paced environments, newer enterprise-grade devices such as Zebra’s line of mobile computers and printers streamline workflows to enable…

  1. Quicker shelf replenishment – Out-of-stocks are one of the top drivers of lost sales. To prevent empty shelves from driving customers away, mobile devices can function as both scanners, computers, and communicators, allowing employees to quickly locate dwindling stock in real-time and replace products. 
  2. Enhanced cybersecurity – If a device is connected to a network, it is vulnerable to cyberattacks. Consequently, modernized mobile devices running on Android are equipped with higher security measures to ward off unauthorized users from accessing sensitive data such as payment information.  
  3. Faster frictionless checkout – The checkout lane is one of the most critical foundations of the customer experience. Intelligent scan engines can help reduce wait times by ensuring more successful first-time scans in less time both at the checkout lane and for curbside pickup.

Is Zebra’s CS60 Companion Scanner Part of Your Next Store Modernization Strategy?

Posted February 16, 2021


With so many modernization options available today, it may be tempting to just jump into the latest and greatest device. However, the key to a successful modernization strategy lies in careful planning. That’s where versatile technologies such as Zebra’s CS60 barcode scanner can be quite useful as it provides an adaptable and scalable modernization option to overcome present and future retail challenges.

Who Can Benefit from the No-Compromise Companion Scanner?

While Zebra’s new CS60 companion scanner is set to enhance storefront workflows, there are a few questions you can ask yourself to assess implementation possibilities before integrating the next generation of mobile retail data capture:

1. Are you currently using multiple scanners for varying scanning needs?

Different tasks may require different scanning capabilities such as hands-free for contactless transactions. Instead of managing multiple corded and cordless scanners throughout the store, convertible scanners like the CS60 can reduce the number of deployed devices, ultimately reducing TCO in the long run.

2. Are associates utilizing scanners in non-traditional settings consistently?

While handheld scanners are traditionally used in the checkout lanes, they have also made their way into inventory management and cycle counting as automated data capture is proven to reduce data entry errors. Mobile scanning enables automated data capture in space-constrained counters, self-service kiosks, and shopping aisles, allowing your associates to stay efficient anywhere they go.

3. Do you need to simplify your device management plan?

Multiple devices mean multiple service and repair plans. Not only does the CS60 preform in various scanning scenarios but its inductive charging feature also eliminates the need for constant recharging. Zebra’s WiFi Friendly mode also secures scanner efficiency without WiFi interruptions. Lastly, pre-installed Virtual Tether prevents device loss by keeping scanners within range and locating misplacements within seconds.   

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, your operations may benefit from new data capture devices like the Zebra CS60. To learn more about how you start modernizing your storefront, contact us for a free consultation.
