How to protect customer data in retail

More retailers are using chatbots and iPads to connect quickly with customers and make sales. This enables them to handle basic service needs faster and more efficiently.

While many businesses and consumers have embraced chatbots and automated features in order to make service inquiries and to share personal information. But many consumers are left wondering where their data is stored.

Research has shown that consumers still want human-to-human interactions when engaging with brands for a variety of needs, from purchases to service requests. This doesn’t mean face to face all the time but rather creating a more human experience online through website chatbots, or when they are using devices such as iPads in store to search or purchase an item.

Recent research has shown that 45 percent of consumers don’t want brands storing their information due to concern over data breaches or hacks. This shows that there needs to be a balance between technology and a human interaction. Retailers need to focus on an approach which encompasses technology into their service offerings but also shows consumers how their data how is protected.

Retail brands also need to be more transparent about how they’re using, storing and sharing customer data. Using devices such as iPads in stores to help a customer find what they’re looking for and is a tool to improve excellent customer service. You can create a great customer experience for them, by using iPads can help you to secure a point of sale more efficiently and perhaps easily. You can use this technology to show them how their data will be used and protected to build a loyal customer base.
