what impact will it have on convenience stores?

Article | March 16, 2020

The Internet of Things (IoT) is not an elegant phrase, but for independent retailers, it is an important one. It refers the way in which computing devices embedded in everyday objects can communicate with each other. In shops, this could mean anything from shelf-edge labels to fridges, to vending machines to security cameras. For cameras, the IoT provides the connections necessary to record, analyse and identify known thieves who might enter your shop. Nick Fisher, chief executive of Facewatch, has high hopes the system could help his company become a major benefit to retailers of all sizes. He says: “Convenience stores are a significant market for us. They have high footfall, a problem with theft and there are not enough police to help stop it.”

How Retail Security Can Welcome IoT Innovations Without Putting Customers at Risk

Article | March 11, 2020

Retail businesses, from mom-and-pop shops to major department stores, are investing heavily in technology to enhance the in-store experience. With the imminent arrival of mainstream 5G, smarter systems are expected to dominate the retail space as the internet of things (IoT) expands. But as we know from connected device deployments in other sectors, such as financial services and healthcare, the IoT is fraught with security vulnerabilities. For retail security, the risks of deploying IoT devices are no less dire. As organizations rely more on the IoT to enable internet connection at every stage of the retail process, protecting IoT infrastructure is critical. Getting on board with the right mindset can go a long way toward achieving a win-win for retail security.

How is coronavirus impacting the retail industry?

Article | March 19, 2020

Primark is one of the latest retailers to announce the temporary closure of some of its stores, in a bid to help stop the spread of coronavirus. It has closed outlets in Italy, France, Spain, and Austria (where 30% of its revenue is generated), while its UK and Northern Ireland stores at the time of publication at least remain (perhaps controversially) open. Primark is certainly not the only one to take this kind of action. Global retailers including Glossier, Nike, Urban Outfitters, and Patagonia have all indefinitely shut their stores, purely to help prevent further outbreak. In the majority of cases, employees are being paid for lost shifts. At the same time, retailers have also updated working policies to help ease the strain on staff. Starbucks, for example, has announced that it is implementing ‘catastrophe pay’ to US employees, meaning that it will now pay staff for up to 14 days if they have been diagnosed or in close contact with someone who has coronavirus.

How A Toy Retailer Is Adding Quality Play Time To Quarantine

Article | March 25, 2020

There are 32 million kids under the age of 14 in the U.S. This week, and for who knows how much longer, they will be home from school due to the COVID-19 crisis. It may sound like a situation that will try the patience of any parent. But Bill Onderdonk, COO of high-end toy and game company KiwiCo, tells PYMNTS CEO Karen Webster that he thinks he has a solution. “If you want to spend quality time with your kids, they’re great projects for two or three people to do together,” he said. “So that’s sort of the other flip side of this crisis. On a broader scale, parents are concerned about how much time kids are spending in front of screens, whether that’s video games, phones or social media. Our products are a great alternative, because they are engaging and fun for kids.”
