How Secured Wireless Connectivity Protects Business
The retail environment is rapidly changing with sudden advancements in technology and data. Consumer habits have evolved into a search and click shopping style, shifting away from more traditional buying experiences within brick-and-mortar stores to digitized online transactions. In fact, e-commerce sales are expected to increase by 22% in 2023 as traditional stores join the mass transformation in offering buy-online-pickup-in-store (BOPIS) and click-and-collect options. Moreover, there will be 2.14 billion global digital buyers in 2021, most between the ages of 18 and 25 who are more used to fast digitized shopping experiences. As this number continues to rise, supply chains have turned to seamless modernization to prevent bottlenecks and delays from impacting the customer experience.
Ensure consistent retail functions with secured connectivity
As we get ready to enter another end-of-year peak season, retailers and e-tailers alike must make the decision between integrating newer technologies or ushering in seasonal employees. Both initiatives can help keep operations running smoothly, yet for true adaptability, modernization solutions must leverage team communication as this prevents disruptions from halting productivity.

- Preparation for the mobile revolution of technology devices and software applications - Automation has been recurrently cited as the next edge of modernization reshaping storefronts and warehouses alike since it minimizes labor costs while empowering workers to do more than repetitive tasks. While devices may be uniquely tailored for specific industries, enterprise-ready operating systems like Android OS prepare businesses for effective automation with speedy data capture that efficiently scans 1D and 2D barcodes and rugged durability to withstand the toughest environments.
- Streamline multiple workflows with modern devices - Handheld computers can scan, compute, and serve as little phones, cutting the need for 2-way radios, scanners, and pen-and-paper notepads. Handheld computers are also more durable and perform better than radios and notepads, so your workers will gain more uptime and workforce productivity will increase.
