OMF is Australia’s fastest growing mattress retailer. It has more than 43 stores across the country, with an extensive range of affordable mattress solutions.
OMF required a point-of-sale solution to promote pricing and priority features of its mattress range in stores that was cost-effective and easy to implement, while still maintaining brand continuity within each store in Australia.
Point of Sale
OMF required SBM to design a poster solution that displayed all the features of the mattress, integrated with pricing, so the store looked on brand with its marketing and appeared neater and less cluttered. OMF frequently promotes different offers and messaging along with unique sale pricing to gain new customers and re-engage existing customers. The point of sale (POS) system needed to accommodate the marketing frequency and variety of promotions throughout the year without adding in excessive production or logistic costs that would stretch marketing budgets and potentially delay the campaign dates due to delivery.
While designing the new POS system, SBM found further advantages for OMF. OMF wanted the brand and retail space to be uncluttered and feel more spacious. The creative team transitioned the banners into hanging banners, allowing for the removal of the point-of-sale from the floor space. This meant messaging and pricing were out of the way from floor traffic and stock, but at the perfect viewing height to draw attention of customers . Additionally, a large QR code on the point-of-sale allows the customer direct access to that mattress on the OMF website for more information and specs – moving them through the consideration phase into conversion.
The flexible, cost-effective solution created for OMF also included an option to attach new promotional messages for each campaign, increasing the longevity of the printed collateral and allowing campaigns to be targeted at specific audiences and sales triggers.
Reducing the creative and production cost for multiple campaigns has saved OMF over 70% on its marketing production, delivery and logistics costs for retail. This allowed the business to reinvest that budget into further marketing across other channels – boosting its omni channel marketing to reach a larger portion of their audience. In turn, this has provided OMF with greater ROI for its marketing and has driven sales for the brand.
We have worked with SBM since 2018 and continue to be impressed with their ongoing commitment to customer service, innovation, and Point-of-Sale solutions, as well as their “can do” attitude.
