Galleria Retail Technology Solutions, a global leader in retail and vendor category optimization solutions, today announced the Galleria Mobile Retail Portal as a new addition to its well-established, consumer-focused range of solutions.
The solution, which is part of Galleria’s evolving Cloud Platform, enables instant access to real-time information via a mobile device for increased collaboration between vendor, retailer and field personnel for enhanced space management capabilities at the shelf.
Ensuring that its retail technology remains in keeping with an increasingly mobile population, the Galleria Mobile Retail Portal enables accurate and current planogram information to be immediately accessed and viewed on a variety of devices including tablets and mobile phones. Planogram implementation becomes efficient and as a result, strategy execution is enhanced by ensuring that consumers see the products they wish to purchase, at the right time, in the right place and in the right quantity to suit their needs. This also helps to improve the retailer’s bottom-line through maximized compliance, minimized waste/mark-downs, improved product availability, increased sales, and maximized workforce efficiency.
According to Mike Humphreys, Galleria’s Chief Technology Officer, retailers and vendor field representatives see immediate benefits through instant access of dimensional shelf level data to enable the correct information to become available to those physically in front of the shelf. By capturing planograms and fixtures, along with layout scanning and reporting, the portal enables issues to be quickly identified and addressed at shelf level, ultimately enabling increased focus on improving compliance in those stores with identified recurring issues.
“Mobile has become a pervasive influence for consumers in every channel and we’re helping retailers and vendors collaborate more effectively at the shelf to enable them to react to their customers increasing demands,” Humphreys said.
A key element within Galleria’s new Cloud Platform is also the portal’s ability to allow immediate transfer of product level information, including assortments, planograms and images for on-demand, permission-based viewing in-store.
“Retailers will also realize cost benefits through limited infrastructure cost and cloud hosting at times when data is not required, which removes the need for costly storage,” Humphreys said. “Overall, the portal provides a robust amount of retail technology with only a light footprint into their IT organization,”
