Role: UI/UX Designer
RQmobile is an iOS app that unites the functionality of a Point of Sale system and Inventory management software in one compact mobile terminal. Here the sales team is not bound to a checkout counter or desktop computer. Products can be tendered, ordered, or shipped to customer on the spot.
Most retail shops have a POS system that is tied to a desk, a computer, or at the back of the store. Once the customer has found their products, the sales flow ends at the counter. How can you make the sales flow more flexibility, convenient, and mobile?
We visited some of our Verizon stores that just started to use RQmobile to observe and see how we could improve design/UX. This was also a good opportunity to talk to store managers, employees, and get some immediate user interaction. We observed that RQmobile created more meaningful interactions between customer and employee. The transaction became more conversational and personalized because they weren’t separated by a counter and computer screen. The sale was more comfortable sitting across from each other, like they were at the dinner table together.
By empowering employees to take the POS on the floor, customers know that they're supported by staff with a convenient and personalized service. The employee can suggest cases, accessories, and mobile protection specifically for that customer’s needs. The customer leaves satisfied with a suped up smart phone, while the employee makes a bigger sale. Win - Win.
