Perfect Omnichannel Solutions for the Way You Do Business

Challenges on all fronts are making omnichannel solutions a necessity for your business. You’re facing skyrocketing prices, forcing you to cut operational costs to the bone. Additionally, like most merchants, you are probably struggling with the labor shortage, either having little success filling open positions or losing staff to businesses that are. Lastly, you must keep up with evolving consumer demands for consistent experiences wherever they engage – in the store, online, curbside, or at a kiosk – to earn and keep their business. An omnichannel solution will help you ease all of these pain points.

What Is an Omnichannel Solution?

You probably have heard the term “omnichannel” so much that it doesn’t significantly impact conversation. But a true omnichannel solution can make a massive impact on your business. It allows your customers to interact with your business in any way they choose.

However, successful omnichannel operations aren’t just doing business in different ways. Doing omnichannel right means centralized management that allows you to offer consistent experiences across all channels. With an effective omnichannel strategy, customers can check inventory availability, use and redeem loyalty points, access information on past orders, purchase and use gift cards, and use their preferred payment methods anytime – and anywhere – they shop.

For example, our Reef Suite allows you to accept payments anywhere and gives real-time visibility into operations across all revenue streams. It includes management capabilities and generates reports on sales trends and business performance wherever you do business, all from a single dashboard.

The Benefits of Omnichannel Solutions

You may move forward with an omnichannel solution to meet your customer’s expectations, but you’ll discover that it has far more benefits for your business. When you implement a solution strategically, you can achieve business goals such as the following:

A Wider Market Reach

Some consumers prefer to shop and order online. Some prefer self-service in a store. Others want assistance from a sales associate on the spot with a mobile device. Merchants that limit themselves to doing business in only one way may need the opportunity to capture sales from people who like to engage in different ways. Omnichannel solutions enable you to provide customer experiences that more consumers want and promote your business to a broader audience with a digital presence.

Increased Revenues and Profitability

Enabling new ways to shop and reaching more consumers can increase sales. However, it’s not just the number of sales. It’s sustainable growth. An Aberdeen Group study found that businesses with a strong omnichannel can increase annual revenue by 9.5%.

A comprehensive omnichannel solution will also help you maximize that increased business by increasing profits. For example, Reef includes compliant cash discounting and dual pricing that can offset some payment processing fees.

Operational Efficiency

Businesses traditionally managing transactions from behind a counter will find that omnichannel solutions will streamline processes. Your staff can assist customers on the spot. Rather than taking time to walk back to the cash wrap, you can easily manage store returns, even for online items. And if your business invoices for products or services, you can use electronic invoices and recurring payments to save your accounts receivable department time and improve cash flow.

Additionally, with all payments data available from one platform, you’ll save time with end-of-day reporting and minimize errors with a system that automatically shares transaction data with your accounting software.

Simpler Vendor Management

Using an integrated omnichannel solution platform from a single provider works seamlessly and simplifies vendor management by enabling you to work with just one company. When you have questions or require service, you know where to call for a quick resolution to any issues.
