Benefits of Rugged Tablets in Retail
Using a rugged tablet in retail can speed up your entire operation, making it more efficient and saving you time and money.
Sales personnel don’t need to be stuck behind a till or when asked about stock have to go back and check, leaving the customer standing around waiting, instead with a rugged tablet they can check there and then and if the item isn’t in stock they can order it for the customer, providing them with an overall better experience, your sales team will have more chance to interact with customers which can increase retention and prevent them from leaving frustrated because they couldn’t get the item they wanted.
Rugged tablets are much tougher than your everyday consumer level tablets, making them more durable and cost effective. If they get dropped in the warehouse or on the sales floor the chances of any damage are reduced significantly meaning you won’t need to worry about replacing them or have staff walking around with cracked screens.
If you are a Retail POS supplier and are looking for some new hardware to partner with your software or if you work in retail and want to purchase some tablets to work with your existing POS then contact us today and we will provide you with a full quote.
