Finish Line Honored for Mobility Initiative Aimed at Enhancing Customer Interactions
AUSTIN, Texas & New York --(Business Wire)--
Computing®, a global provider of mobile computing solutions
based on leading rugged tablet technology, today announced it is
honoring The Finish Line, Inc. (NASDAQ: FINL), a leading athletic
retailer, with the First Annual Excellence in Mobile Point of Sale
Award. Finish Line is using Motion solutions to enhance customer
interaction and free up valuable real estate with a downsized point of
sale (POS) at cash wrap. Motion is announcing the award winner at this
Retail Federation 102nd Annual Convention & EXPO
"With limited available retail floor, we need to take advantage of every
inch of space and Motion Tablets are small, sleek and feature proof,"
said Terry Ledbetter, Finish Line senior vice president and chief
information officer. "We also want customers coming in the door to feel
engaged and empowered. The Motion team's in-depth knowledge of retail
workflows, hardware and kiosks helped us select and implement the right
tools to meet and exceed customer expectations."
Far beyond delivering tablets, Motion provides a holistic offering of
products and services customized to meet the retail industry's mobile
workforce needs. Motion's J3500 Tablet PCs are the foundation for a
streamlined POS solution at Finish Line stores. Featuring both touch and
pen input options, running Windows and powered by Intel (News - Alert) Core processors,
the solution easily runs Finish Line's custom Micros Retail software
while saving space. The rugged design of the tablet fits well with the
sporty environment and includes a locking docking station with multiple
ports that are critical for connectivity. Motion's J3500 Tablets further
enhance the customer experience as in-store interactive kiosks, where
customers may tap the screen to customize merchandise, create wish lists
and order online.
"Motion congratulates Finish Line for being a leader in adopting mobile
technology solutions to gain competitive advantage," said Peter Poulin,
vice president, marketing for Motion Computing. "We are impressed by
Finish Line's ability to demand solutions that deliver immediate
benefits as well as long term solution value and ROI."
Finish Line has substantially completed this roll out to 650 stores
