Empowering Your Store Associates to Fulfill Your Brand Promise

Do Your Store Associates Pass or Fail?

This month we’ve got some happy news (another year as an LS Retail Platinum Partner!), two LS Retail promotions, and last but not least, ArcherPoint Retail’s newly redesigned Website.

But first, we were inspired to write about the value of Store Associates according to consumer research; and what you can do about it.

We recently read a report from Tulip Retail that said 83% of consumers believe they’re more knowledgeable than the retail associates in the stores where they shop.

Reminds us of a situation that happened to a friend of ours named Mark, that he says he won’t soon forget…

Shopper Frustrated with Customer Service
During a very important business trip, right before an event he was to cover, Mark discovered that a special memory card was missing from his camera bag.

He rushed into the first big box brand store that he saw, expecting to quickly find a replacement card. There were three store associates who were chatting amiably in the checkout area. When Mark asked for the device, two didn’t know what the device was; the third surprised him when he said he was sure they didn’t sell that particular item.

Mark asked the store associate to show him the aisle where the item would be if the store did sell it. The associate showed him where he thought it might be; it wasn’t there. He then took Mark to another aisle, and stood shaking his head while Mark frantically moved product aside to see what lay behind–several replacement cards.

Mark won’t go back to that store or buy from that brand again, and his networks will know about his experience.

It’s likely he would agree with 90% of the survey respondents that said they also shop at Amazon because really, overall, store associates are not meeting expectations.

The Good News: Mobile Tech Makes the Difference

Almost 80% of those same shoppers said that Store Associates are valuable–when they have mobile technology to aid in inventory discovery, credit card checkout, and product information–which encourages them to shop in-store.

What to do, and how:

A mountain of research, as well as common sense, says that it really comes down to meeting customer expectations at each touchpoint in an end-to-end omnichannel retail ecosystem.

You Gain When You Deliver Omnichannel Brand Intel to Your Store Associates.

With business analytics and intelligence gained from POS to corporate to loyalty programs, retailers can plan strategies on the go, predict customer demand, prevent customer churn, create memorable shopping experiences, and fulfill the brand’s promise to the customer.
