Top 10 Merchandising Solution Providers 2016

In today’s fast-evolving digital landscape, convincing a customer to visit and purchase from a retail store requires more than just traditional ways of promotion. Every retail store should stay on top of merchandising concepts, trends and have its own style of merchandising to entice the customers.

Modern day retail merchandising is not just about advertisements, logos and displaying organization’s name on complementary products, but to establish a powerful, personal, and long-lasting experience between brand and the consumer. A merchandiser needs to maximize the sale of products by offering eye-catching packages, distinctive pricing, and promotional schemes. For this, the companies are venturing into omnichannel retailing and trying in-store marketing solutions such as beacons to enrich the shopping experience. In addition, retailers are leveraging social media and mobile platforms to engage users and influence their decisions. Also, the cloud-based point of sale systems in stores add to the performance, functionality, and looks.
