El Grupo Unicomer implementará las soluciones móviles Starmount Engage en tiendas de 19 países: toda Centroamérica, el Caribe, Ecuador y Estados Unidos

Starmount anunció hoy que el Grupo Unicomer, una de las principales cadenas de tiendas retail en Centroamérica, el Caribe, Ecuador y Estados Unidos está implementando aplicaciones para pedidos de ventas y gestión de pedidos a través de dispositivos móviles para mejorar el servicio al cliente. El Grupo Unicomer opera más de 700 tiendas de electrodomésticos, productos electrónicos de consumo y muebles, bajo diferentes marcas en Centroamérica, el Caribe, Ecuador y Estados Unidos.

Como parte de la implementación de la solución de Oracle® para Puntos de Venta (POS) en Unicomer por parte de Starmount, se están adaptando las aplicaciones móviles de Starmount al modelo de negocios de ventas de productos de precio alto a crédito del Grupo Unicomer. Al utilizar la aplicación de POS/Sistemas de Tiendas para dispositivos móviles basada en Starmount Engage, los representantes de ventas pueden iniciar y completar las transacciones directamente desde la sala de exhibición –es decir, tomar pedidos, aceptar solicitudes de crédito, revisar las condiciones de crédito y planes de pago, y coordinar las entregas de electrodomésticos y muebles sin tener que alejarse del cliente en ningún momento.

Asimismo, el Grupo Unicomer planea implementar Starmount Connect, una plataforma de captación de compradores omnicanal que ayuda a las tiendas a ofrecer una experiencia más rica a sus clientes, así como a salvar la venta en la tienda. Al utilizar la plataforma Connect, los representantes de ventas del Grupo Unicomer tendrán acceso a comparaciones de productos, recomendaciones y comentarios acerca de los mismos, información sobre la disponibilidad de productos e información adicional. Esto los ayudará a completar las ventas y brindar una experiencia de compra mejor informada a los clientes.

Las aplicaciones de Starmount manejarán con facilidad las complejidades de usar varias monedas, idiomas y países. Asimismo, Starmount suministrará al Grupo Unicomer una sola plataforma para procesar los pedidos de ventas de todas las marcas reconocidas de la cadena, tales como La Curacao, Courts, Lucky Dollar, Almacenes Tropigas, Artefacta y Gollo, perfectamente integrada con los sistemas de punto de venta actuales y futuros.

Guillermo Simán, vicepresidente de la junta de directores y vicepresidente ejecutivo del Grupo Unicomer puntualizó: “Las nuevas aplicaciones nos ayudarán a mejorar la experiencia del cliente y el rendimiento de todas nuestras tiendas, y nos permitirán responder a nuevas oportunidades del mercado con mayor rapidez”.

Mario Fermán, vicepresidente de tecnología del Grupo Unicomer, comentó: “El Grupo Unicomer atiende a más de dos millones de clientes que realizan sus compras a crédito en toda la región, y la tecnología de Starmount es clave para que podamos brindarle al cliente los mayores niveles de satisfacción, al tiempo que modernizamos nuestras plataformas de aplicaciones generales".

Joe Pisano, presidente y vicepresidente ejecutivo de operaciones de Starmount, declaró: “El trabajo que ha realizado Starmount con el Grupo Unicomer demuestra la flexibilidad de nuestras soluciones para ventas a través de dispositivos móviles y nuestra capacidad de ayudar a las cadenas retail realizar su visión de tecnología móvil en todas sus marcas”, y agregó: “El Grupo Unicomer representa una marca muy respetada en América Latina, y Starmount ve con mucho entusiasmo el poder trabajar con ellos para adaptar nuestras soluciones móviles a su modelo único de captación de clientes”.
