Is There Room For Technology In Home Decor Retailing?
Home Decor retailers are faced with aspects of technology that other retail markets don’t always have to deal with. As the technological tools and toys we are surrounded by change, our furniture and accessories have to keep up.
Fitting In The New Technology
Think of the ways that television and music have changed home decor. As the equipment for entertainment has developed new technology, the space needed for these items has shrunk. Once it took a lot of space for that massive console tv, for instance, but the times have changed. While the television may have grown thinner and lighter, the number of tech-related things most people want in their home has grown bigger and better.
This growth of tech-related stuff means it has to fit into the room where we use it, and that’s where savvy home decor retailers can make a difference and make a profit, too.
Space For Consultations
It’s helpful when Home Decor Retailers offer consultations. There doesn’t need to be a home visitation but a space on the sales floor to sit down with an expert and discuss what can be done about living room tech-clutter can be a game-changer. A laptop with the right software can show customers multiple ways to store all the remotes, or how to design an entertainment wall. Sales staff equipped with ChainDrive’s integrated retail management software can access inventory to show the possible colorways in a furniture line and search for items with a particular feature, like cable grommets.
This consultation space provides a comfortable way to showcase more than your sales floor can hold because the entire line is available for special order with enough samples to give a feel for what that line is like in real life.
Expanding Into New Channels
Technology has opened up the world for retail and home decor is no different. With internet potentials like e-stores, third party marketplaces, and social media, home decor retail can expand into new channels. ChainDrive for Home Decor is designed to make technology work for retailers. With the optimization of this management software, it is possible to move into the new channels available without losing efficiency. The professional support team and flexible software components ensure that you will have room for this technology and grow.
