Best of all, with lightning fast implementations, you will see an almost immediate payback in ROI from increased revenue, improved productivity, and consistent execution of your retail strategy.

StoreWalk for ReflexisPlus

StoreWalk for ReflexisPlus provides a system for conducting more consistent and productive store walks and retail audits and turning what is often a slow-moving and inefficient routine into a streamlined process that spreads best practices to every store. It builds corporate compliance into each visit and enables managers in the field to focus attention quickly on problem areas.

Mobility for ReflexisPlus™

ReflexisPlus™ on mobile devices enables retailers to increase efficiency and improve customer service by putting task management and store auditing into the hands of store leaders. With ReflexisPlus and StoreWalk for ReflexisPlus™ on smart phones and tablets, managers can make faster decisions, respond to opportunities, and ensure consistent execution of retail strategy, all while in the store aisles:

  • View daily, store specific prioritized tasks including promotions and product launches that drive increased sales
  • View projects, including overdue and edited, to ensure they are completed as intended
  • Optional department view lets store managers monitor tasks/projects by team categories


Traditional workforce management solutions provide valuable ROI for retailers, but they schedule store labor and tasks based on corporate plans and forecasted workload drivers that are weeks, months, and even years old. No matter how accurate the forecast data and labor scheduling algorithms, traditional solutions don’t allow retailers to detect real-time events and trends and direct best-practice response to the dozens of unplanned interruptions that happen in stores on a daily basis:

  • Buy online/ pickup in-store and e-commerce fulfillment
  • Unexpected customer arrivals

The Reflexis StorePulse® real-time customer engagement platform enables retailers to sense key events and trends happening inside and outside stores and intelligently redirects store associates to provide exceptional customer service. Reflexis StorePulse® uses real-time data from any source, analyzes it, and sends alerts with appropriate follow-up actions to the right corporate or store employee.

Reflexis StorePulse® Real-Time Store Execution on Mobile Devices

Retailers have an opportunity to leverage their stores as competitive advantages over “Pure Play” online retailers: immediate gratification for “I Want it Now” shoppers; faster delivery to homes for e-commerce orders using “Ship from Store;” ability for customers to touch and feel products in the aisles; and much more. But to maximize the considerable investment in people, stores, and real estate, “brick and mortar” retailers must provide a personalized shopping experience in store aisles ─ which web sites already provide ─ by anticipating customer needs, fulfilling their omni-channel promise, and providing a consistent brand experience across all stores.

Reflexis StorePulse®real-time store execution on mobile devices provides retailers with the perfect solution to enable stores to respond to immediate customer demand and maximize the most important space in your stores ─ the three feet between an associate and a shopper in the aisles. Reflexis StorePulse on mobile devices enables the following capabilities:

  • Detect and respond to real-time customer needs such as high value “check-ins” by greeting them in the aisles with prior purchase history and preferences to make the most of selling opportunities
  • Respond using a retailer’s own best practices to real-time metrics and alerts about stock-outs, weather, overdue critical task non-completion, and more
