Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Retailers worldwide have started using M2M-based digital signage to provide essential information on product launches, the latest additions to product lines, and discounts. M2M-based digital signage sends targeted advertisements to potential or existing customers based on their profile. It is also used to display video messages at the point of sale. M2M-based digital signage delivers information on a real-time basis. It provides better features than the traditional print-based displays. It helps retailers save time and money and enhance customer outreach.”

According to the report, retail is a highly competitive industry. Therefore, it is vital to provide the best customer experience in a cost-effective manner. Wirelessly connected solutions such as POS systems, vending machines, RFID systems, and kiosks help improve customers' shopping experience by reducing costs, automating manual processes, and expanding product portfolios into new markets. POS allows enterprise staff to provide a better customer experience by enabling flexible payment process and enhancing queue management.

Further, the report states that the M2M ecosystem consists of a vast number of players. Standardization of devices from different manufacturers is essential to avoid interoperability issues where multiple devices are connected. The M2M value chain consists of producers, connectivity providers, application service providers, service providers, and sellers. All the entities in this value chain follow their own standards and protocols, which leads to incompatibility among devices produced by different device manufacturers.
