Empowering Retail in the Digital Age: Elevate Customer Experience with Screamer Telecoms SD-WAN
In our hyper-connected world, the retail landscape is transforming as customers demand a seamless blend of online and in-store shopping experiences. This trend reshapes the industry, compelling retailers to deploy innovative technologies for a world-class omnichannel presence. Leveraging IoT and cloud technologies is essential for retailers to meet evolving customer expectations.
70% of companies lack confidence in delivering a seamless hybrid customer experience due to network infrastructure limitations.
Assessing Your Network Infrastructure
To fulfill the dynamic expectations of customers, retailers must evaluate their network infrastructure. Both online and offline stores demand fast and stable internet connectivity to support bandwidth-intensive applications. Traditional WAN infrastructure often falls short, struggling with latency, downtime, performance issues, and security concerns.
Enterprises can overcome these challenges by adopting Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN). Unlike traditional WAN, SD-WAN provides a cost-effective, agile, and scalable solution, empowering retailers to enhance agility and elevate the overall customer shopping experience.
Revolutionizing Retail with SD-WAN
As retail expands online and offline, the number of locations and transport options diversifies. SD-WAN emerges as a transformative solution, with 45% of retailers considering its adoption. Here’s how SD-WAN can revolutionize the retail industry:
- Improved Connectivity: SD-WAN works with various connectivity options, prioritizing critical business applications and routing them to connections with the lowest latency. It also ensures network redundancy with built-in auto-failover mechanisms.
- Simplified Management: Retailers with distributed environments can benefit from the decoupling of networking hardware from management. SD-WAN streamlines network traffic management via a centralized console, optimizing online and offline store connectivity.
- Flexibility and Scalability: SD-WAN allows seamless integration of secondary and tertiary connections, enabling retailers to expand their WAN environment cost-effectively. This flexibility ensures easy scaling up or down based on traffic requirements.
- End-to-End Visibility: SD-WAN provides complete visibility into the network, enabling real-time tracking and monitoring of traffic. Proactive 24×7 monitoring reduces mean-time-to-resolution (MTTR), enhancing uptime and availability.
- Better Application Performance: By addressing challenges like packet loss and network congestion, SD-WAN intelligently steers customer-facing and business-critical applications to low-latency, stable connections, ensuring optimal performance.
- Enhanced Network Security: SD-WAN integrates advanced security protocols, including next-generation firewalls, encryption, DDoS prevention, and anti-malware features. This convergence of network and security minimizes risks and ensures compliance.
- Time and Cost Savings: SD-WAN reduces costs associated with traditional WAN infrastructure, including unplanned downtime and deployment expenses. It facilitates rapid provisioning, minimizing time-to-go live for new site deployment and service onboarding.
