Robling announced today the availability of a free analytics application providing key insights for retailers in planning their store reopening strategies.
As American consumers grasp for a sense of normalcy—albeit in the new reality of social distancing—retail chains seek to responsibly reopen store locations while ensuring the safety and well-being of employees and customers.
Retailers need to predictively plan for reopenings in order to safely and efficiently serve customer needs. Reopening previously closed stores requires rehiring, scheduling and re-training staff, sourcing, allocating and shipping in-season merchandise, implementing social distancing and hygiene protocols along with signage, fixtures, packaging and more.
