Industry Veteran Shares Lessons Learned from Deploying iOS for Mobile Point of Sale

Austin, TX – October 18, 2013 – Motion Computing, a leading global provider of rugged mobile technology solutions, announced today a new whitepaper for retailers considering a mobile point of sale (Mobile POS) solution. 13 Unlucky Lessons Learned: Deploying Mobile Point of Sale with iOS highlights lessons technology veteran David Sipp and other retailers have learned from their Mobile Point of Sale deployments. In addition to stating the challenges of iOS and other consumer devices in enterprise retail environments, the whitepaper outlines several things to consider before searching for a Mobile POS solution. A few tips from the whitepaper are outlined below:

  1. Workflows Should Drive the Technology Implementation vs. the Implementation Driving the Workflows
    Mobility should improve customer experiences. Attention should be focused on avoiding implementing mobility in places where it is not needed or doesn’t fit. Consider specific workflows that will enhance sales and customer loyalty, then architect solutions to fit these.
  2. Introduce Change at a Pace the Matches Your Workforce
    One of the most common tenants of organizational behavior is that people resist change. When considering a Mobile POS solution, gauge the willingness of store managers and associates to embrace new practices. A staff that feels that too much is changing will be resistant to the change.
  3. Choose Technology that Works within the Current Environment
    Retailers each have a unique architecture, developed specifically for their business needs. Adding Mobile POS should not force most of the existing methods to change. Demand solutions that fit your needs and you will realize the full benefits of a mobile retail environment.
