Apple and CDW in Retail

Retail professionals need technology to help make a customer’s experience in-store as safe and seamless as possible. Apple devices are built with this environment in mind, iOS and iPadOS apps are designed to be powerful, engaging and simple to use from anywhere, offering employees the ability to perform a full host of retail tasks that are just a tap away.

  • Inventory Managers - Oversee merchandise operations in-store or remotely, including receiving deliveries, checking stock levels, and executing price and promotional information all on the iPad; helping to fulfil customer demand and supporting omnichannel.
  • Store Managers - View local sales results as well as product and service deliveries, as-well-as managing schedules, data, and stock levels, while using Apple devices to train their workforce.
  • Visual Merchandisers - Use Apple devices to video call other stores, helping to keep branding consistent throughout each location.
  • Sales Associates - Identify customer needs while offering a seamless sales process, allowing customers to pay for items anywhere in the store via a mobile-connected point-of-sale; eliminating queues, and enabling a richer customer experience.
  • Customers - Apple offers a range of customer-friendly services, including ApplePay, Apple Music for Business and Business Chat, customers can expect to move seamlessly between online and in-store.

With iPad and iPhone, you can onboard employees with ease and benefit from a faster training experience compared to traditional hardware, enabling them to consider how they can optimise processes helping to develop informed and engaged employees.

Retailers can benefit from greater in-store efficiencies by managing the complete estate from one single platform, and together with Apple Financial Services, you can move your costing to an Opex model.
