COVID-19 has significantly accelerated retailers’ need for digital transformation and highlighted a shift in both consumers and employees’ preferences. In this new world where health and safety are paramount, employees and consumers are looking for contactless shopping experiences on their own devices.
New retail trends are emerging out of the coronavirus pandemic that leverage mobile scanning technology. For retailers it means reconsidering the use of shared, dedicated scanners instead putting smartphones in the hands of each employee. For consumers smartphones unlock new experiences, such as augmented reality overlays while looking at items in your store and mobile checkout scanning for contactless forms of payment.
AI and Computer Vision are now, more than ever, a great ally to support retailers’ efforts to meet these new needs, enabling an extra level of flexibility that is a must in uncertain environments, and thus shaping the future of Retail.
