The VeriFone GlobalBay Retailing solution is providing Deckers with the ability to bring the power of omni-channel to the aisle, enabling sales associates to better engage consumers, fulfill their requirements and complete transactions with full end to end credit card security. The solution’s seamless integration with the Demandware ecommerce platform enables store associates to also sell out of stock products in the aisle that are available on the store’s website.
“We are not a technology company, but we need to utilize technology to enhance the customer’s engagement with the UGG brand. Our implementation of GlobalBay, which we call Infinite UGG, enables our associates to have a deeper, more meaningful interaction with customers while fulfilling their demands for products—anywhere, anytime—in a seamless, secure and elegant manner,” said Gerard Marceda, vice president of North America Retail for Deckers. “Customers are delighted, and that’s our ultimate goal.”
The VeriFone solution delivers an omni-channel experience that is PCI compliant and satisfies consumer demands to keep credit card information safe from theft. The solution includes the PAYware Mobile secure payment sled, which enables payment acceptance through the iPad mini, and VeriShield Protect for end-to-end encryption. It is configurable by Deckers and offers deployment speed and flexibility.
“With VeriFone GlobalBay Retailing, sales associates not only have an opportunity to ‘save the sale,’ but to also leverage mobile technology to provide product details, images and relevant information anywhere in the store,” said Jeff Wakefield, vice president of Business Development and Strategic Initiatives for VeriFone.
In addition to enhanced sales capabilities and customer experience, the VeriFone GlobalBay solution also provides Deckers with a channel it can use to remotely provide employees with training videos and other types of informational content in real time.
