Mixed Reality gains competitive advantages

Fierce competition affects the retail industry and therefore it is crucial to reconsider every single aspect of your business to differentiate yourself from others. Retailers need to utilize innovative technology to make their business processes more efficient. A way to transform brick-and-mortar stores is by utilizing Mixed Reality for warehouse management.

Mixed Reality is a scanning solution that adds elements of virtual icons and animations through the lens of a mobile camera. Retailers can display graphics, animations or other virtual content on the mobile screen, whenever a barcode is scanned.

Optimize warehouse management processes

The future of retail includes a supply chain with a strong infrastructure. By using Mixed Reality in the warehouse, retailers ensure that all items are registered with the correct price and location. Additionally, you get information on stock and the specific products by scanning several barcodes at once. This means that you can retire the manual scanner at inventory counts and product deliveries.

With the rising e-commerce sales, it is worth mentioning the many online orders and packages that are processed in today’s retail. Here Mixed Reality comes in handy, as you quickly get information on how the packages should be further processed. E.g. if they should be shipped or returned.

Shared inventory

In addition to fast and efficient counting and registration of Mixed Reality products, it is also crucial that omni-channel retailers have shared inventory.

With shared inventory, you can be certain that an item that has already been sold in your brick-and-mortar store isn’t sold again in the web store. This is solved in NaviPartner’s business solutions NP Retail and NP Ecommerce, as they share inventory data. All data regarding inventory level, sales, and statistics are registered and processed in the same ERP-system, Dynamics 365 Business Central – formerly known as Dynamics NAV.
