Before we answer the question posed by the title of today’s blog, allow us to ask and answer another. How have wireless phones made your life easier? Well, they allow you to take and make phone calls anywhere in the world. Long gone are the days of having to have your phone plugged into a wall. We think you know where we’re going here. When you take a device and make it wireless, you open yourself up to a whole new world of possibilities!
What new possibilities come with using wireless terminals in your store? Much like you’re able to travel with your cell phone, you can travel with your wireless terminal. That means that you can generate business by adding a delivery service to your brand’s repertoire. If you already deliver, you’re likely familiar with the concept of invoicing your clients or having them provide you with credit card information that you can input when you return to your place of business.
Naturally, this significantly slows down the payment process and hurts your company’s cash flow. With a wireless terminal, you can accept a payment right on the spot. By the time your delivery personnel departs from the front doors of your customer’s home, he/she has already secured payment for your business. A wireless terminal ensures that you get paid quicker and that you can do more to secure those payments.
How can wireless terminals expand your business? Implementing the use of a wireless terminal for your business can also allow you to open up a kiosk. That way, you don’t necessarily have to worry about renting a large space for a new store location. Making yourself more visible in malls or at outdoor events during the summer will work wonders for your bottom line. With little investment, you can make sales in locations where you wouldn’t normally be seen.
Clearly, this is the time of year when there will be a lot going outside. With the wonderful weather brought to us by the summertime, there are bound to be a variety of festivals and other outdoor events where your brand should be present. Walking with a wireless terminal enables you to turn any outdoor location into your own place of business. If you’re thinking of sponsoring an event and setting up a booth this summer, you’ll need a wireless terminal!
