Retalix Mobile Shopper to Offer a Compelling Shopper Experience on the go(January 16, 2012)
DALLAS, Jan. 16, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Retalix® Ltd. (Nasdaq:RTLX), a leading global provider of innovative software and services for retailers, has released Retalix 10 Mobile Shopper, a new set of mobile applications that connect consumers to the retailer ecosystems and to their favorite local store. Mobile Shopper includes the ability for consumers to manage their shopping inside and outside the store at any time, to find store locations, to access product information and pricing, view special offers, scan items, perform payments, and more. This new mobile offering builds on Retalix's unparalleled expertise in retail to provide retailers with advanced technological and business capabilities in a world transformed by the digital lifestyle.
Today, when social consumers are constantly connected to the people, organizations and information they value most-and mobile applications have quickly become the popular means to manage these relationships-Retalix 10 Mobile Shopper is designed to help retailers meet customer expectations and enhance their engagement.
Mobile Shopper is designed to provide value throughout the entire shopping cycle, enabling the shopper to: prepare shopping lists before entering stores, easily perform real-time price and item availability checks, scan items by themselves, and pay for them directly from the mobile device via a variety of payment methods, including at fuel forecourts, thus reducing checkout time, and finally, receive a digital receipt. Retailers can tie Mobile Shopper to any loyalty and customer management program, enabling them to offer targeted promotions and coupons, and allowing shoppers to access and manage their loyalty account information online.
A unique benefit of the Mobile Shopper is its ability to serve as a store touch-point, completely integrated with the specific store platform and database, as opposed to being a separate siloed channel. This innovative feature enables a range of additional benefits, such as a unified shopper experience at the store, and access to store-specific promotions.
Powered by Retalix 10 Store Suite and Retalix's patent-pending Shopper Gateway software, Retalix 10 Mobile Shopper applications run on the popular mobile platforms, including iPhone, Android and Windows Phone devices, and can be integrated to any retailer store environment.
"Retalix 10 Mobile Shopper is yet another exciting step in Retalix's offerings, helping retailers to provide a superior shopping experience that is unified across all shopper touch points and sales channels," says Shuky Sheffer, Retalix chief executive officer. "With the new Retalix 10 Mobile Shopper apps, we believe that retailers can now better serve digital-minded shoppers, stay well ahead of the competition and strongly differentiate their brand in the mobile ecosystem."
