From RSPA INSPIRE: Much Ado About Millennials
I’ve attended several RSPA INSPIRE winter conferences, so most of the topics discussed this year didn’t surprise me. The most important challenges facing the retail IT channel — shrinking hardware margins, the transition to the as-a-Service business model, the convergence of POS and payment, the rise of mobility — have been top of mind for at least a couple years now. But I am a little taken back by how much the nearly 100 channel executive attendees at this year’s INSPIRE have talked about Millennials. (If you’re not familiar with the term, Millennials are typically considered to be people born between the early 1980s and early 2000s, which covers everyone between the ages of 17-29.)
Amazon Adds Confusion To The Retail POS Landscape
If you didn’t think you had enough competition or the POS landscape was confusing enough, Amazon recently announced its entrance into the point of sale game. Yes, Amazon. This news made its way throughout the RSPA INSPIRE conference today, with many wondering what Amazon’s solution would look like and how it would or could alter the retail landscape. Any time a company the size of Amazon makes a move, all retailers watch. However, retail resellers and vendors haven’t had a concern or stake until now.
