From Holiday Grinch to Holiday Magic
With the holiday season fast approaching, retailers across the nation are gearing up for their busiest season of the year. For newer businesses, the physical logistics of a sudden influx of customers often presents one of the greatest challenges in defining their brands. Come the first week of December, while you’ll want to see customers coming through your doors, will you really want to see a long line of impatient people rapidly becoming unsatisfied with their shopping experience?
How you handle your holiday logistics can make or break the future of your business, so you need a solid plan to ensure that you and your staff are up to the challenge.
As you may know, AVPS is a big proponent of mobile credit card processing because of its easy adaptability.
For example, you can have an instant “express” line, or simply process sales at every corner of your location, including your parking lot. Rather than long lines, a few employees armed with mobile phones or tablets can become instant cashiers wherever they are. Even better, you have the ability to change your whole process in real-time. If you experience a sudden rush, you can deploy employees with the ability to accept payments even as they assist customers. The beauty of mobile processing comes from its ability to turn any space into a payment station with practically zero physical footprint.
As you plan for your holiday season, visualize just how mobile phone credit card readers can revolutionize your operations. At a time when customers would rather expedite shopping experiences than linger, you can show them that you value their business by valuing their time. This will also allow you to keep the traffic-flow manageable, which creates a positive image for your business.
