Choose an old retail drone: Trying to offer customers a good shopping experience can be difficult when you need to share open computers with other employees. Corporate networks are slow and for the most part even slower. Only a smooth conversation leads to awkward silence when the computer has trouble finding the widget in question.
Fortunately, hardware retailer Lowe’s decided to do something about this lackluster experience: They purchased (among other things) 42,000 iPhones to inform their employees about DIY information sources.
Lowe’s wants to expand the functionality of its iPhones in-store as long as the first launch goes smoothly. iPhones are likely to block certain features to reduce potential MyLowesLife employee abuse. Therefore, the daily functions of the shortlist include mobile calls and emails. Lowe also hopes to add Square’s ability to buy directly from the phone.
Lowe’s CIO Mike Brown plans to “follow the customer’s psyche,” highlighting the company’s choice for mobile devices.
The iPhone is a state device – the “legal” alternative to Home Depot’s Motorola handheld devices. The company’s recent decision to replace CRT screens with flat screens, and the installation of WiFi in stores, also indicate a new strategy for them. Lowe’s appears to be trying to wage a positioning war: MyLowesLife wants to play the role of modern, future-oriented devices. It is still unclear whether this will happen or not, but they at least deserve some credit for trying to keep the retail broker to a minimum.
If you have devices in the Lowe Iris Smart Home product line, it’s time to look for alternatives.
Lowe’s announced that the line will offer and plans to change the “platform and related services” in late March. In other words, a large portion of these once-smart devices is located near the brick.
On a positive note, Lowe’s is committed to providing MyLowesLife customers with “Authorized and Connected Iris Devices” with the restriction they will need to access their exchange portal. “PLEASE DO NOT RETURN YOUR IRIS DEVICES CONNECTED TO A STORE STORE,” he stresses several times. You don’t want that either.
Motive Behind The MyLowesLife Portal
The main objectives behind the launch of the MyLowesLife portal are listed below:
- The MyLowesLife portal is solely introduced to make the life of the employees serving the Lowes easy.
- This online portal helps the MyLowesLife management team to monitor the employees easily. Thus, they can focus on more important things which results in the enhancement of productivity on their premises.
- The MyLowesLife portal is one of the easiest ways for the employees to access their details like the work schedule, the payment information, the benefits they are entitled to, etc.
- This online portal has made sure that the employees need not visit the HR department of the MyLowesLife frequently. This helps them to save their valuable time and energy.
Refunds take the form of a prepaid Visa card. They also point out that some, but certainly not all, Iris-enabled devices work with alternatives like the Samsung SmartThings platform.
Since November 2018, Lowe’s has been trying to find a buyer for the product line.
Converting a home into a smart home may seem easier than ever, but for many, it’s just a maze. Write “smart bulb” on your favorite mega online retail website – half of the results probably come from mystery brands you’ve never heard of. Are you sure? If someone finds devilish performance that allows hackers to touch this lamp to scan their wider network, will they fix it? Are you going to work in a year? For anyone entering a MyLowesLife who believes they can have their own brand, the answer to this question seems to be negative.
