A TECH STARTUP THAT CAN MOBILIZE YOUR PHYSICAL STORE

 

Rista Mobility – A Promising Tech Startup Helping Retail Stores of India Go Mobile.

Today, for any consumer-oriented business to succeed requires a mobile-friendly retail
presence. Richard Lowe, the managing director and head of retail and wholesale at
Barclays, acknowledged that many retailers continued to be wary of mobile but argued
that they needed to embrace it. He said, “With almost three quarters of consumers
using their mobile devices whilst out and about, ignoring this trend would be a missed
opportunity. Retailers must cater for the mobile consumer in order to remain relevant.”
Mobile commerce is the fastest growing segment of the retail sector and 70% of the
shoppers prefer to use their smartphones for shopping online.
