Back-end efficiencies help drive rich, engaging experiences for customers throughout the retail experience. The question is, how do we get there? The answer lies in disruptive technologies. When armed with solutions that streamline operations and increase productivity, retailers can focus their efforts on deepening customer engagement with innovation at every touch point.

Warehouse efficiencies that change the game

Warehouse operations have been slow to embrace the digital revolution. In today’s fast-moving world, however, digital transformation is key to increasing supply-chain transparency and meeting increased customer expectations. Panasonic solutions help retailers reinvent their operations with handheld technology that enhances employee productivity, speeds inventory turns, reduces errors and fulfills orders faster.

By transitioning to advanced rugged handhelds, deploying next-generation software and training workers to leverage new efficiencies, companies can set themselves up for success. We’re helping them at each step along the way to transform warehouse operations into a valuable bottom-line booster.

Custom-built showroom experiences

It’s true: more engaging in-person experiences attract more customers. Purpose-built digital signage, for example, has been proven to be 400% more effective than static signage at gaining attention. That’s why we’re reimagining shopping experiences by overlaying digital technology in physical environments.

As part of a redesign of Ford’s premier auto showrooms, we created an innovative, digitally connected experience to make a great first impression. Inside, a massive halo-shaped display attracts customers, while an interactive video wall surrounds them in immersive product content, including video, games and trending social media. Best of all, our content distribution platform enables Ford to instantly provide the same content to locations all over the world.

Retail security

Store cameras with integrated deep learning

Panasonic’s deep learning facial recognition camera technology outperforms all other competing technology. It’s even providing additional levels of security at Tokyo’s Narita Airport ahead of the 2020 Summer Olympics, where it will enable passengers to check in, pass through immigration, receive directions from a robot assistant, check personalized flight details using digital signage and self-board at the gate – all without manual ID verification.

This “One ID” solution from Panasonic can be particularly valuable to retailers, not only for security and theft prevention but ultimately for enabling personalized customer experiences.

Migrate applications to Android OS

Operating system migration can create tremendous inefficiencies for retailers. When Microsoft announced the end-of-life of Windows CE, many were stuck using the existing outdated hardware. Fortunately, Panasonic offers a low-pain migration solution, allowing retailers to retain the existing look and feel of their current applications while modernizing to a new Android-based rugged handheld. This helps minimize retraining efforts for warehouse, back room and restocking employees.
