Smart stores unite online and offline for omni-channel success - XON Retail Solutions
Smart stores unite online and offline for omni-channel success

The growing prominence of smart stores in support of omni-channel retail is due to changing behaviours of shoppers. Technology has progressed in the past 25 years and has changed the way consumers interact with brands and products. In the past 25 years traditional scenarios included limited consumer exposure to brands and products, typically localised to in-store experiences with a higher likelihood of a consumer purchase. Consumers were influenced by TV advertising and in-store marketing that resulted in fierce brand loyalty or lengthy - and expensive - campaigns to change consumer preferences.

Innovative technology is a key trend in the manufacturing industry

Over the past decade, packaging has evolved from a purely functional device intended to convey vital information and protect the product, to a key role-player in the purchasing and decision-making process. However, the equipment used to label, code and print on packaging has to be on trend and remain innovative and cost-effective in order to stay relevant and ahead of the competition.

Kim Gentle
Is our online shopping on the ball?

In South Africa, first world and third world often blend into each other without anyone noticing, especially in the form of technology. One catches a first-world Gautrain or communicates with the rest of the globe via the very latest smartphone or iPad, yet we have potholes on our roads that could engulf a small car and power cuts that occur almost on a weekly basis. So technology is certainly our flag-bearer, but how has this benefited the consumer?
