10 November 2020

Moves to the Cloud are powering innovation in the retail industry. By accelerating a shift to Cloud, retailers can be more agile and scale quickly. Moreover, by shifting to the Cloud retailers are able to unlock the power of their commerce solutions, especially for those striving to bring store, web, mobile and social together, while ensuring their customers can enjoy an always-available, consistent, and easy shopping experience.

Flooid has extended its cloud offering to provide retailers with the high-availability cloud infrastructure they need to drive powerful unified commerce platform capabilities, create seamless shopping experiences and gain a competitive market edge.

Global retailers need a wide range of technology options. For example, the Cloud enables some of Flooid’s largest clients to take full advantage of all the capabilities that our platform offers and to increase and decrease capacity as needed.

Retailers want access to a robust retail platform that scales dynamically with demand. With complementary technology from Flooid and providers like Google, Microsoft and IBM working in tandem, retailers can design, control and revolutionise customer experiences across different verticals, geography or channels. Other benefits to the retailer include swifter implementation and heightened security. And, the cloud brings everything together in a virtual space that enables them to test the possibilities of new technologies without huge costly hardware investments. This opens up new opportunities to innovate and transform the retail experience.

Cloud benefits include:

  • Ability to pay for what you use
  • Fail fast environment
  • Ability to keep data where you need it
  • Security

As the Cloud continues to act as a spark of innovation in the retail industry, both retailers and shoppers will benefit from more seamless and personal shopping experiences.
