WiFi Independence & Local Storage
Mercaux is a cloud-based platform, the in-store applications receive data directly from the cloud via regular updates and store key product information locally which enables the apps to work without the need for a constant WIFI connection.
Though the internet connection is required for placing online orders or emailing customers, the app itself is fully functional even in those store areas that have “dead WIFI zones”. In order to provide a fast and seamless user experience, once connection is restored the app will automatically download only data differences since the last update, which means it does not require significant bandwidth.
This means that retailers do not need to upgrade their WIFI infrastructure if they want to launch Mercaux.
