Internet of Things becomes more and more of a necessity for retailers, as it helps them embed the physical devices with electronics, software, and sensors, enabling a seamless data flow.
Digital Transformation is the trend to follow nowadays. If it’s done smart, it is a sure path to success and customer enablement that allows companies to understand data, compare results, and make accurate predictions.
It’s hard to remember that over 20 years ago cell phones were mainly used for emergency purposes and looked like walkie-talkies; think the Nokia 9000 which was one of the first mobile “great communication enablers.” In 1996, Hotmail’s free email service was introduced, growing from zero to 30 million active users in 2.5 years, which of course was used to exchange “important” and countless cat pictures. In 1999, one of the first free SaaS collaboration tools was launched, MSN Messenger, which grew to 300 million global users by 2011 while Hotmail grew to 350 million global users by that same year. As a cloud c-store technology provider who started to develop its first SaaS solutions during the late 1990s, Petrosoft is well aware of the limitations of mobile and SaaS during this period as well as the advancements in technology over the next decade.
