Apple in retail Apple in retail

Retail employees are always mobile, and Apple devices are built for a mobile environment. Let’s take a look at how retail businesses are using iOS devices to transform their customer and employee experiences.

streamline comms

Streamline communications between the store and the stockroom

Employees can take a picture of the stock gaps on shelves and send them to the stockroom runners. The stockroom employees can find the products quickly and replenish the empty shelves.

Use the Deputy app for timecard management

Use the Deputy app for timecard management

Employees start their workday with Deputy, an iPad and iPhone app for time card management. Employees install the app on their personal iPhone devices. Now they can receive push notifications to let them know when shift schedules are published, and they can clock in and out of each shift too.

Store managers use Deputy to create and review schedules, approve schedules and manage shift changes.

Keep your teams informed and engaged

Keep your teams informed and engaged

According to a survey by Tulip Retail, 83% of shoppers believe that they are more knowledgeable than retail advisors. Using a custom app, store advisors can quickly attend to customers’ needs. They can use the camera to scan product barcodes and immediately see detailed information about the product, check stock levels, and order or reserve items.

Differentiate the customer experience
