The Head Office has the full control over the operations performed by the Store, along with the possibility to check for possible discrepancies.

Two-way exchange (between the Head Office and the Stores), restricted to the information you really need. Quick response is obtained thanks to Barcode and RFID technologies, as well as by using portable devices.
Offline / Online connectivity: for independent stores dealing with their everyday tasks, for them to be updated on vouchers and loyalty cards, as well as regarding the sales and inventory status.
Negoziando is available in the following languages:
Negoziando MediaBox provides the necessary support to attract customers who are in the immediate vicinity of the store via instant messaging, through Bluetooth technology. Video-clips, advertising and promotional messages, ambient music and any other multimedia content can be planned, delivered and operated directly by the head office.
The store is perceived as the real contact point between a company and the customer and must be referred to as a primary image resource, a dissemination tool for brand identity and a privileged place for interaction with the customer.
InfoCenter is a Negoziando form that can be operated as a data collection and consolidation center. Data may come from Negoziando in-house sources (Takings, Attendance), from external devices (Traffic counters, Shoplifting barriers, …), from outsourced services (Web Services) able to provide information (Weather reports, Exchange rates, ….). The information is collected across pre-configured and grouped schedules according to the time gap having been defined. Moreover, Negoziando InfoCenter allows the disclosure of information to the outside world.
Loyalty dynamics such as Loyalty and Gift Cards, for example, are represented by specific system features and are attributed to the single customer, so as to create a customer register related to the two promotional tools, whereas the Promo Engine function determines which are the entities involved (items, customers, locations,etc.) to which the promotions apply, including card holders, and the resulting data can be easily examined. The new Loyalty form functions, as well as the interface towards the Social world enable the retailer to better target the promotions and attract new customers.
Negoziando supports the company in consolidating their Brand Awareness. This is possible thanks to the strong integration of the Solution with all available Social channels. Loyalty is therefore increased and the customer is turned into a Brand Ambassador. Negoziando allows you to associate a “Facebook user” with a “Loyalty user”, create promotional engines to encourage in-store events and trace back user registrations. Customers have the opportunity to make a check-in store as soon as they enter the shop, post their location on the social page and share their in-store experience.
Due to it being composed of independent forms, Negoziando can be integrated with already existing management systems.
