From low profits and customer attraction to inadequate customer experience and online competitors, optical retailers face a lot of challenges nowadays. These big challenges should be faced head-on if you want your eyewear store to stand out.
Smart store management can help you improve the performance of your eyewear store. Operations can be digitized and streamlined, which gives you a chance to focus more on sales. Solutions like the Newton X and Advanced Information Management System (AIMS) can help you integrate smart store management and increase your sales.
Here’s how you can increase eyewear store sales with smart store management
Switch to Newton X for shelf labels
One of the first steps into digitization and incorporating smart store management is switching to ESL or electronic shelf labels. Electronic shelf labels can enhance the overall shopping experience and lead to better profits. SOLUM ESL can be integrated into the AIMS software, which makes price updates and label management easier.
SOLUM’s Newton X is perfect for small and delicate retail items like eyewear. This is because Newton X is lightweight and discreet, and was developed for small and fragile products. Whether it be glasses, sunglasses, bifocals, trifocals, computer glasses, tinted lenses, aviators, or other types of eyewear, the Newton X can be attached to the product.
Apart from its ultra-compact design, Newton X also has interactive features and a high-resolution display that will attract shoppers. These will make it easier for people to take a look at the product, and check the price or other details of the eyewear.
Design ESL layout for better advertising
Better graphic design and layout make for better advertising. It’s been reported that 90% of the information that gets transmitted to the brain is visual in nature. This means you need to ensure that your digital label displays are accurate and appealing.
Fortunately, AIMS comes with an easy and user-friendly layout designer tool. This allows you to design ESLs and how they will fit the eyewear products you sell, show accurate prices, or match your store’s branding.
