Greek telecommunications company Intracom Telecom has introduced a system that uses smartphone data to offer a digital experience to retail owners, their customers and employees.

It responds to the needs and challenges of any retail business, from individual to chain stores.

The flexible system is said to allow physical stores to increase average revenue per customer, reduce costs, optimise inventory scheduling, automate processes, outperform physical and on-line competition, and increase employee and customer satisfaction.

Moreover, offering a digital experience to the consumers, it gives them the opportunity to interact with the store, through their smartphones.

The information generated by the shoppers is collected by the smart retail technology, enabling retailers to gather insights, further analyse customer behaviour, launch in-store marketing campaigns and reduce queues.

“This is a brilliant addition to Intracom Telecom’s wide portfolio of smart solutions,” said Nikolaos Velentzas, general manager of Intracom Telecom’s business services division. “Always listening to the market’s needs and seeing the immense penetration of smartphones into people’s lives, we have created a smart solution that paves the way for individual stores and chains to step rapidly into the digital world, offering the business and its customers a wide variety of features that redefine operational excellence and shopping experience.”
