Indianapolis, IN – October 3, 2016 – Appirio, a global cloud services company that creates next generation worker and customer experiences, today announced the release of its Retail Worker Experience Solution, a Salesforce Fullforce Solution for Retail. The Retail Worker Experience Solution combines Appirio's retail industry expertise with its strong Salesforce deployment experience to help retailers increase employee engagement and improve the customer experience.
The new offering aims to tackle the business growth challenges faced by retailers struggling with outdated technologies ? a barrier that denies employees the benefits of consumer-grade experiences. To help retailers gain a competitive edge, the Appirio Retail Worker Experience Solution enables customers to leverage the availability of smart devices and the rise of mobile point of sales (POS) systems to roll out innovative solutions that supply workers with the right information at the right time. Store, distributor, and franchisee workers can now use new digital tools such as cloud-based communities and service portals combined with mobile survey apps to create more efficient and effective communication between retail workers and shoppers.
