Jones Group Goes Mobile With Epicor

The Jones Group is using Epicor Software's mobile solutions to improve operations and better serve its customers during the in-store shopping experience.

The Jones Group Inc. represents more than 35 of fashion's most recognized brands, including Nine West, Jones New York, Anne Klein, Rachel Roy, Stuart Weitzman, Easy Spirit, Enzo Angiolini, and Givenchy. The company joins a growing list of other retailers leveraging the Epicor Retail Store solution. Fully mobile-enabled for easy deployment and use on Apple iPad, iPod and Windows mobile devices, Mobile Store brings information directly to sales associates' fingertips — to better serve customers from anywhere on the floor.

With Mobile Store, retailers can create and complete transactions from anywhere — the sales floor, dressing room, sidewalk, special event, pop-up store, kiosk, and more. Associates can access on-hand inventory and quickly find out-of-stock items to be delivered or picked up without ever having to leave the customer. Store personnel also can use Mobile Store to perform day-to-day inventory management functions such as receiving, shipping and physical inventory processing.

Now in pilot across numerous locations, The Jones Group has armed store associates with iPod devices to complement traditional registers. Using the iPod devices, store associates are free to assist customers on the floor, "untethered" from the register. Customers paying via credit card can be completely checked out by the associates using the iPod devices, and pick up their receipt via a centralized printer in the store.

"At The Jones Group, we're committed to doing all we can to make the in-store shopping experience interactive and efficient, and we view mobile as key to enhancing our store operations and customer service efforts," said Scott Bowman, group president of Global Retail and International Development of The Jones Group. "Armed with a simple mobile device such as an iPod, our store associates have all the same functionality as they have on a traditional register — right in the palms of their hands."

Online sales and marketing vehicles are one of the most important channels fashion has for engaging with customers, but optimizing the value of your electronic interactions can be a complex undertaking. Front-end websites must be user-friendly and smart, but just as critical is tight integration to the back office systems used to produce, manage, and control the products you sell. If you cannot create an online platform that delivers across all fronts, you’re missing critical opportunities to engage with customers, increase sales, and extend your market reach across global time zones. Read this White Paper – authored by Bob McKee, Infor Industry Strategy Director, where he will share insights into the eCommerce market and just how Fashion companies can deliver on a 24/7 sales economy.
