E-commerce: The Salvation for Retail Businesses.

While in my early twenties, I was a programmer on the team that wrote the inventory control programs for The Home Depot when they were expanding from 2 to 4 stores! Prior to buying my first home, there was no reason to visit a hardware store. Little did I realize that this was the early stages of a whole new generation of buyers. Having grown up with Home Depot, that is the only place considered when something was needed for a home repair. That mentality helped HD become the behemoth they are; people of MY generation think of the big orange box first and only shop elsewhere out of necessity.

The latest generation of shoppers is deeply attached to their smart phones and tablets. This NEW generation thinks first of Amazon, Ebay, or other mass merchants, when they go “shopping”. The phenomenon is just starting. When they are at their desk thinking of their projects at home to do over the weekend, or while finishing lunch or sipping a latte at Starbucks, they are surfing the web on their smart phones. With Wave by BMS, we have created an easy and inexpensive interface to e-commerce. By tapping into this market, making your store the top of their search history, you can win this battle. You have the distinct advantage of being not only easy, but far more accessible. They can enter an order on your e-commerce site and pick it up later that same day, not several days later. They can also gain the benefit of your helpfulness and product knowledge the big boxes can’t, but if you never get them in the door that opportunity is lost.
