Mobile is redefining the retail experience. With EMV deadlines rapidly approaching, retailers understand that the time to begin preparing and making serious decisions is now. As retailers prepare for EMV migration they are forced to consider what functionalities they want to build into these new systems. And these decisions affect all divisions including payments, marketing and technology.
While upgrades will be costly, they will also enable retailers to build in functionality for mobile payments and a full array of mobile retail services that will drive traffic to their location, increase basket size, improve the customer experience and increase profitability.
Adding to the mix is the excitement, and confusion, about merchant coalitions and the seemingly endless proliferation of mobile wallet platforms and how they stand to impact the retail community.
The RAMP educational platform delivers comprehensive, end-to-end content that touches the entire retail ecosystem. RAMP looks at emerging payment models and platforms including merchant coalitions and the exploding number of wallets now in the market. And at how retailers are leveraging mobile and digital to enhance the customer experience. How retailers are moving towards true omnichannel platforms. How to mobilize in-store staff as well as manage mobility in the enterprise. How to tie back-end applications into back end operations. And how to manage the 'Big Data' that all of these new touch points are creating.
In addition to the very real dialogue that occurs on stage, RAMP offers retail executives an unparalleled networking platform enabling them to interact with all RAMP attendees. "The highlights are the amount of networking that's built in. The way the conference room is set and how the exhibit hall is done with seating areas make you feel comfortable to sit down with small groups and just visit… Mobile is blowing up in our face right now…. This helps us to make informed, qualified decisions." Bill Deichler, Operations Manager, Payment Methods, Murphy Oil USA.
