Worked with Kewuyou, SUNMI in May 26th released an Android-based digital solution, which was easy to deploy, easy to use and can provide real-time operational data, thus to help the digital transformation of the supermarket industry.
Easy to deploy: install 16 POS terminals in ONE hour.
Download and install software, and Android devices are ready to use — compared with traditional Windows POS terminals, which are usually bulky, costly and require professional support team for debugging and installation, Android-based solutions are more easy to deploy. Mr. Wang, the owner of Jietemu Supermarket, and also a 20-year practitioner of the supermarket industry, was quite satisfied about the solution. It only took one hour to install 16 POS terminals on site and one day to deploy the POS system of supermarket, O2O marketing system and upload key data for Jietemu.
Easy to use, no training required.
Traditional Windows-based solutions are complex and require extra time for staff to be trained. But when it comes to Android-based solutions, no training is needed as long as the staff know how to use an Android phone. Open software, log in, touch screen or press pinpad, and done.
Real-time operational data at your fingertips.
Mobile management makes store operations easy. Now Mr. Wang can check store reports, product sales and promo results with a cellphone at anywhere.
