WESTMINSTER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Brother Mobile Solutions, Inc. (BMS), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Brother International Corporation, will showcase its full range of mobile printing solutions and technical expertise at RetailNOW 2017, Booth #739, August 6-9 at the Paris-Las Vegas Hotel in Nevada. This well-attended trade show focuses on products and solutions for retail industry technology providers, including resellers, software solution vendors, POS and payment professionals, manufacturers and distributors.
Market Changes Driving Innovation
The theme of this year’s RetailNOW is “reAlign, reUnite, and reEngage” ‒ a timely directive given the challenges facing retail organizations today. Major moves by eCommerce players ‒ Amazon’s intent to acquire Whole Foods, for example ‒ as well as the recent closing of many brand-name retail stores and the exponential growth of on-line consumer shopping, and all signal a sea change across the entire retail industry.
Ravi Panjwani, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management for Brother Mobile Solutions, explains: “We believe new challenges also bring new opportunities. With the retail market in a flux, and trends such as ‘buy online, pick-up in store’ skyrocketing, we have doubled down on bringing smart, versatile mobile solutions to market - and we’re partnering closely with retail technology VARs and ISVs to bring a new level of technical expertise and consultative insight to retail IT decision-makers.
“We’ll be talking with vendors at the show about our new Partner Program “THE NEXT” which is designed to encourage technology innovation and fruitful relationships.”
Mike Lowey, Director of Retail Sales at Brother Mobile Solutions, adds: “To remain competitive and meet increased shopper expectations, traditional retailers must embrace innovative concepts, such as eGrocery, Click-and-Collect, and others. Brother’s goal is to help retail solution providers across every category capitalize on new opportunities by providing the smart mobile printing solutions that are essential to the performance of their applications.”
Lowey also notes that; “Representatives from our technology partner, ProxToMe will be on hand at the booth to unveil Virtual Hub – the IoT platform for cloud-based device management that connects to any POS peripheral.”
