The Future of Retail IT Evan Schuman

As cash registers continue to become obsolete and mobile payments are becoming the norm, retailers are anxious to implement mobile POS systems to capture customer data, streamline transactions, improve the shopping experience, and boost sales. But these deployments are far more complex than most realize, with a lot of moving parts to consider. And with EMV deadlines fast approaching, certain security measures must be implemented quickly. How can you ensure a successful roll-out across 100’s or 1,000’s of dispersed locations with minimal business disruptions?


Join 20-year retail IT veteran, Evan Schuman for a cutting-edge dinner discussion where you will gain expert advice on how business and IT leaders can:

• Leverage
POS and Wi-Fi technology to enable associates to serve customers better on the retail floor
• Integrate the tools you need quickly, whether they be chip and PIN system updates, RFID upgrades, secure wireless networks, smartphone devices, or monitoring tools
• Avoid downtime and minimize business disruptions across many dispersed retail locations
• Speed up payments, processing, ordering, shipping and inventory tracking
• Develop a loss prevention strategy to avoid shoplifting issues when there is no centralized checkpoint
• Gain deeper customer data for real-time insight into buying patterns and proactive product planning strategies
