apphardware, the first online store to source hardware and associated applications, specifically targeted at small to medium sized businesses, covering all industries, has launched today.
Online at apphardware.com, organisations including those from the retail, hospitality, healthcare and events industries, will be able to source all the technology and services they need to run their businesses from the point of sale or point of interaction with consumers. Businesses will be able to find devices, applications, peripherals, consumables, payment and secure network services in one easy to navigate and informative place while taking advantage of economies of scale. apphardware has partnered with TeleHook, SpacePole, ModulR and Kensington and other leading brands so customers know they are dealing with trusted suppliers.
Speaking on behalf of apphardware, analyst, Chris Field said, "apphardware reflects the way we do business today and is the champion for all those companies who currently have to go to lots of different places, talk to lots of different people, sign lots of different contracts, warranties and lease agreements, just to get started. Not only can they can get it all from apphardware, but they can also get free advice from a community of users who share their business management experiences."
The apphardware community provides advice on how businesses can get the maximum value from their investment in smart devices and applications, such as setting premises up to take sales, how mobile vouchers make stores more attractive and how to take the sting out of Christmas. The community will reach out to its membership not only via the web shop but via product videos and twitter - @apphardware. Members will also be able to promote a “product of the month" and ‘share’ any advice or product technology with community members.
The apphardware community will continue to grow and evolve as it adds hardware suppliers and app developers to a unique marketplace.
Businesses are increasingly rejecting the traditional PC-based hardware and software combination which often proves expensive, bulky, and inflexible in favour of mobile solutions that can take advantage of literally thousands of business applications to run all core activities.
Mobile points of sale and interaction are also favoured by consumers who are able to use their own smart devices to interact with the retailer or hospitality company, not only to make payments, but browse products, order online, process click and collect orders, and redeem digital vouchers.
apphardware.com, a trading name of Kioskstyling Ltd, is the one stop shop for small to medium businesses looking to source the most effective and cost-efficient hardware and associated applications to enhance the customer experience.
