Retail Transformed, Service Unmatched.
Redefining the customer experience with voice and data communications
RETAIL CONNECTED. CUSTOMER SECURED.
RUNNING A THRIVING, PROFITABLE RETAIL ESTABLISHMENT IN TODAY’S INTENSELY COMPETITIVE WORLD IS NO EASY TASK.
With so many ways to buy, shops have to offer so much more in order not to become showrooms for in-store browsers. Staff need to be aware that anyone who walks through the door is valuable and should be courted with an experience that is simply too good to refuse. They need to provide a personal touch that makes the customer feel special, balancing ever evolving technology with face-to-face interaction. The challenge is to turn browsers into buyers and get them to make a purchase while they are in store. The question is, how do you do that? It’s more than just a welcoming smile and a complimentary cup of coffee. Shop floor advisors need to be empowered with better product knowledge, access to latest stock information and clarity on pricing and promotional deals. They need to be part of a streamlined retail operation where everyone is connected, no matter where they work, what they do or which device they use. So that when the customer needs advice or a query answered, the response is immediate.
The secret is to provide your staff with unified voice and data communications. One seamless and reliable solution that instantly connects the people you want, when you want them. With real-time information and communication, your entire operation works together as one team to give customers the service they expect. Requests quickly satisfied. Recommendations swiftly made. Your customer hooked.
REDEFINING RETAIL WITH TEAM COMMUNICATIONS
FROM STOCK ROOM TO SHOP FLOOR, FROM SECURITY GUARD TO MANAGEMENT, MOTOROLA SOLUTIONS CONNECTS ALL YOUR STAFF AND GETS THEM COMMUNICATING INSTANTLY AS ONE TEAM.
A versatile range from basic radios to high productivity devices ready to take advantage of the added capabilities of applications, unlocks the power of communication. No boundaries. No confusion.

Decades of expertise in radio design combined with unrivalled experience in productivity applications allows us to develop a solution that precisely meets your needs. Whether you have a single store or a national chain, we’ll get your teams talking as one. If your teams are connected with unified voice and data communications, danger is quickly averted. Shop assistants raise an alert with maintenance while ushering shoppers away from the spill and cordoning off the area. A cleaning team is identified using a location app and directed to the aisle, their job priorities rescheduled using Work Ticket Management. Shopping continues in all other areas of your store as the clean up team gets to work. Customers are not inconvenienced in any way and as the rapid response has prevented accidents, you don’t have to worry about compensation claims or health and safety investigations.
SHOPPER BROWSES IN YOUR STORE, BUYS ELSEWHERE
WHEN A SHOPPER ENTERS YOUR STORE WITH NO INTENTION TO BUY, HOW LIKELY ARE YOU TO CONVERT THEM INTO A CUSTOMER?
With unified voice and data communications, your chances are multiplied. The shopper informs a sales assistant that the product they are interested in isn’t on show. The assistant utilises the simple one button convenience of push-to-talk to check stock with the warehouse and have the product brought to them. The shopper asks technical questions which the assistant quickly resolves by locating a product specialist using their radio. And when price is raised as an issue, the assistant has the knowledge to communicate latest offers. The shopper realises the overall product and service package is strong – and becomes a customer.

RADIOS FOR EVERY WORKER
PEOPLE WORK IN DIFFERENT WAYS AND NEED DIFFERENT DEVICES.
Sales assistants require a customer-facing radio that looks attractive and provides simple but effective voice communications. Stock room staff and security personnel, on the other hand, will need a more rugged radio with enhanced coverage that allows them to work in remote locations or signal blackspots. Motorola Solutions offers devices suitable for every worker and budget – from MOTOTRBO™ productivity tools equipped with full voice and data functionality to ready-to use unlicensed devices. MOTOTRBO radios deliver enhanced coverage to keep everyone connected, wherever they work, Intelligent Audio with advanced noise cancelling so staff can communicate effectively even in busy areas, long battery life for extended shifts plus the latest wireless connectivity utilising Bluetooth 4.0.
SUSPECT PACKAGE, SHOPS EVACUATED

Ready and prepared with unified voice and data applications. Automated Alarm Management alerts the store security supervisors who contacts the centre’s security team to gain an understanding of the problem. The nearest guards are identified with a location app and Transmit Interrupt is used to communicate an emergency order over existing conversations. Store staff are also contacted utilising any-network, any-device Team Communications and with everyone working together as one unified team, a coordinated evacuation of the store is put into action. Customers and employees are led to safety quickly and efficiently with minimal panic and risk.
