Remember back in April when we launched the Android version of the Cyclone Bike Shopper App? We promised we would have an iOS app for you by the end of June. Well, it took a little longer than we thought (This app stuff is hard work), but finally we have the Apple approved iOS version of the Cyclone Bike Shopper up and running on the App Store as of August 3, 2015!
It’s worth noting while the iOS version does all the same great things as the earlier Android iteration – SEARCH, SCAN, and BUY – we’ve even added some new features along the way.
Using the App as an ordering/buying tool is a no brainer. It makes sense that you would use it to fill the stock room, and stock your shelves. But what happens when your customer needs a size or color you don’t have in stock. Or maybe they want to compare features or price for several products you don’t currently stock?
No worries. We got this.
Now, in addition to quickly searching for products or scanning UPC barcodes to your cart for easy ordering, we’ve added a little twist. With the flick of a thumb your Sales folks can hide wholesale pricing and display only MSRP. The App just went from ordering tool to sales tool. Using the Cyclone Bike Shopper in Retail Mode, your Sales team can walk a would be customer through our entire catalog, showing in stock items and retail pricing. Your inventory just jumped to over 20,000 skus and it didn’t cost you a dime.
Now that Manufacturer Direct and Amazon are becoming the “New Normal” for retail bike sales, how are the traditional brick and mortar shops meant to compete?
Easy, Cyclone Bike Shopper in the hands of every IBD’s Sales team allows you to quickly and easily walk customers through a huge inventory of competitively priced products, confirm the purchase and place the order before the customer has even left the building.
Stay tuned, because we’re not done yet. Our in-house nerds are hard at work right now, cooking up more developments to the Cyclone Bike Shopper.
Like, I said, “We got this.”
