Overcoming the challenges for retail professionals

Retail-specific suitability is a must, and this means addressing the following common challenges:

Managing new retail infrastructure

From social media to third-party selling arrangements, retailers find themselves with a growing list of platforms to manage. Physical outlets exist alongside these new digital channels, which means a complex mix of scattered branches and business departments, point-of-sale endpoints, visual display units, billing systems, servers, and other infrastructure to manage and maintain. 

Remote access technology needs to streamline device management, making it possible to access, control, update, and configure all endpoints, without the need for physical intervention.

Delivering rapid customer support

Customer expectations have shifted. If they have a problem, customers increasingly expect an instant response, delivered through whichever device or channel they prefer to use. 

Your remote access technology should facilitate a seamless, omnichannel approach to customer service. This includes the ability of customer service reps and technical support staff to access customer devices on-demand, see problems for themselves, and deliver solutions.

Expanding your reach

If you have to provide in-person support and aftersales care, it potentially limits your retail market to a narrow geographic area. 

Effective remote support means that geography is no longer a barrier to brand expansion. New markets, more profitable product lines, and new revenue streams suddenly become much more feasible.

Enabling remote work

For managers, sales and support staff, finance professionals, and a host of other roles, remote or hybrid working models can provide a boost to employee morale and make it easier to recruit and retain staff. 

Care must be taken to ensure remote working isn’t second best to traditional working models. Workers should be able to connect to and work with all key business assets when working from home as if they were still in the office.

Reducing costs and protecting margins

Squeezed customers are now much more likely to switch retailers in search of the best value. The pressure on margins and pricing strategies is intense, and there is an expectation on the entire business to keep costs as low as possible. 

Your remote access technology has a valuable role to play in helping you achieve more with less. It can mean reducing your expensive property footprint by facilitating greater use of remote working, faster, more cost-efficient staff training, fewer expensive support call-outs, and more time to devote to revenue-generating activities.

Prioritizing security

To trust you with their payment details, customers need constant reassurance that their data is in safe hands. Likewise, when employees are collaborating over distance, you need to be sure that sensitive commercial information does not fall into the wrong hands. 

When it comes to the remote access technologies you have in play, comprehensive access controls, data protection, and cyber security safeguards are all essential.

At TeamViewer, our mission is to help you help others.

Enhanced convenience for retail professionals, improved operational efficiency, and effortless access for and to customers — these are just a few of the advantages offered by TeamViewer's solutions for the retail industry.
