Retail Solution Configuration: Retail Systems Remote Manageability of Devices

Support many devices across multiple stores from a centralized location.

Background
For those brick-and-mortar retailers looking to create a multichannel shopping experience, the major challenge is supporting a wide range of devices, including POS terminals, self-service stations, digital signage, smart phones, tablets, etc. One way to ensure that level of consistency is to deploy an end-to-end retail solution designed with manageability and networking interoperability in mind, making it easier to present uniform brand messaging that builds sales.

Solution
Reduce the cost and complexity of supporting these devices with Intel’s device management solution that enables retailers to manage devices across multiple stores, countries, and geographies from a centralized location (e.g., headquarters). This is possible using readily-available, off-the-shelf components and systems that are integrated into Intel’s intelligent device management solution. The savings can be significant, as demonstrated by a major bank that achieved an ROI of 524 percent in just six years, after deploying ATM machines with Intel® vPro™ Technology with support for improved patching, OS reimaging, and remote problem resolution.


Benefits

  • Implement centralized device management to reduce support costs
  • Consolidate all retail back-end solutions onto one server
  • Implement end-to-end wired and wireless connectivity
