3. Choosing the right mobile device for the job.
Learn how to tackle these challenges and make technology decisions that improve worker productivity and help manage costs.

In today's competitive retail environment, customers want to interact with your business through different channels. On the front end online, mobile and in-store experiences are all important, and all have to tell the same story about what’s new, in-stock and what’s on sale if you want to build satisfaction and loyalty to your brand.
Several years into the app economy, business has changed. Accelerating product cycles and competitive threats now demand continuous planning. Change is constant and managing it is more important than ever.

We’ll show you how to get your data house in order, scale beyond the proof of concept stage, and develop an agile approach to data management. By continually repeating the steps in this guide, you’ll sharpen your data and shape it into a truly transformational business asset. You’ll be able to overcome some of the most common business problems, and work toward making positive changes:
• Improve customer satisfaction
• Reduce equipment outages
• Increase marketing campaign ROI
• Minimize fraud loss
