Waiting in line is so old school & a bit foolish

Businesses need to innovate by continuously looking for ways to improve the customer experience and survive in a competitive landscape.

Businesses need to innovate by continuously looking for ways to improve the customer experience and survive in a competitive landscape.

Editor personal note: “Last week I spent 20min on the line so I could buy a book for my sister-in-law. When I was in #Nike oxford street, I had to wait 35 minutes to buy my new air force. Sometimes I feel that waiting in line is more dreadful than washing dishes or cleaning the house after a party because then I’m at least moving.”

Thankfully some brilliant minds decided to do something about it. They presented the future of fashion retail by offering not one but two alternatives to waiting in line.

Zliide self-checkout 

Zliide self-checkout is possible through its smart tag. Moreover, there is no need to get into a line since our app can unlock the security tag.  We like to believe that we revolutionize intelligent security tags. Our tag is intelligence in the sense that:

  • It knows exactly the product it is attached so customers can see the product information,
  • It’s insightful, has data such as time and place the product  was scanned and knows by whom 
  • Enables frictionless self-checkout anywhere in the store 
  • Negates the need to spend time in long queues while giving the in-store experience and allowing the sales staff to focus elsewhere.

Zliide Delivery+

Another way to skip the line is online shopping, with no lines just sliding from a product to another and waiting for the parcel to arrive. However, Zliide Delivery+ does something out of the ordinary. We believe that physicals stores aren’t dead. They just need to adapt. How? By having two main roles. 

​​The physical store presence acts as an enabler for the digital part of the business, with stores turning into hyper-localized micro fulfillment centers. By pushing more orders through the e-commerce platforms, retailers can use their stores to distribute their products faster and more conveniently while creating more sustainable delivery options for customers.

For consumers, online shopping provides a level of access that may not be available to them in retail stores, as they can make purchases quickly, easily, and with Zliide,  have the goods delivered on the same day. Another plus is that local delivery allows for more sustainable vehicles. For example, Zliide is powered by bikes  #enviromentlyfriendly. 

It’s a Wrap! 

Businesses need to innovate by continuously looking for ways to improve the customer experience and survive in a competitive landscape. The next revolution in fashion is coming, and the ones who adapt it will be the winners of tomorrow. 

Nowadays, there are plenty of delivery choices for retailers, but few enable your store to have frictional self-checkouts of offering same-day delivery, so as a piece of advice, don’t wait; start Zliiding.

I know the omnichannel is a little bit worn out, but that doesn’t take too true out of it - let’s just say that the world is increasingly integrated and digital. Zliide just makes it easier for any fashion retailer to follow this demand.
