Galleria's New Mobile Cloud-Based Retail Portal Provides Anytime, Anywhere Access
CHICAGO --(Business Wire)--
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 MikeHumphreys, 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
"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,"
