Digitization in our time – and in the future
"The innovation of a time is always only the innovation of that current time. But technology never sleeps." Along this guideline, "The Leading Trade Fair for Retail Technology" connects the here-and-now and the future.
At EuroCIS, around 500 exhibitors from almost 30 countries present a broad spectrum of innovative technologies to 12,000 visitors. Thanks to its growing importance as the leading international trade fair for retail companies, EuroCIS once again promises to be a magnet for top decision-makers.
Fresh Retail Now!
When the digital voice assistant provides advice about your products, customer movements at your store can be controlled, and your system knows exactly what your customer really wants.
The future of digitization is difficult to predict. At the booth of Deutsche Telekom and its partners Wirecard and RealCore Group, it will be given a face. It will become tangible and feasible. Under the motto "FRESH RETAIL LIVE! DIGITIZED. SMARTLY INTEGRATED.", retail companies can receive assistance with the digitization of their business. And guidance is urgently needed, because the fundamental realization that competitiveness will dwindle without digitization and that something must be done now, and quickly, is not enough. What is important, is a partner who involves managing directors, technical managers, sales managers and marketing managers equally when it comes to finding solutions. Deutsche Telekom provides retail companies with comprehensive support combined with many years of industry expertise during their individual journeys towards digitization.
The triad of planning, logistics and sales
At EuroCIS 2019, detailed insight into the closely interlinked processes of planning, logistics and sales will be available. Each measure has an impact on the other processes. The boundaries are fluid. Once everything is in place, the entire system can be optimized. Proper planning avoids delays in the supply chain. Intelligent sales solutions, which interact digitally with planning and logistics, improve processes and can even lead to a better customer experience across all channels. In Düsseldorf, Germany, Deutsche Telekom will demonstrate an interplay of coordinated solutions to achieve a successful omnichannel strategy.
From blockchain to stores networked via IoT
Those retail companies which document their supply and value chains automatically via blockchain will enter a new era when it comes to end-to-end safety. Another novelty here is the mobile intelligent store merchandise management by RealCore, which supports sales staff during movement of goods and thus frees up time for customer interactions once more. Additionally in stores connected via IoT, in which sensors on devices of all kinds report critical conditions early on, can ensure that no reverse vending machines are full anymore, or that paper bags are always available on baked goods shelves, which in turn will reduce stress. Payment via smartphone with the Seamless Shopping Experience solution by Wirecardalso reduces strain on staff while improving the customer experience, because there is no longer any need to queue at the checkout. The app can also be used in combination with electronic labels, so-called smart tags, on products or shelves and with a digital shopping cart. A small revolution in the area of POS systems is entering the retail landscape with the MagentaBusiness POS system. This innovative solution from the secure cloud makes the switch to a modern, user-friendly system more than easy and affordable.
Retail 4.0: Digitization powered by T-Systems
Digitization is changing the business world. But what used to play a big role in large companies only, is now set to arrive in retail as well. Supermarket owners want to optimize the organization of their processes and offer more convenience to customers.
