Scala connects the physical and virtual worlds at ISE 2015

Join Scala at ISE (Integrated Systems Europe) 2015
Hall 8 – Booth F195

Sittard, February 3, 2015—“The future is here. The future is now.” We’ve all heard it before (and will hear it again), but now is the time to see things in action—and Scala is ready to oblige.

One of the most beneficial things retailers can do is create a unified experience between their in-store and online worlds. This year’s focus is to further enhance the full package of retail, coordinating tools and technologies with customer data findings, to build an engaging and memorable customer experience.

ISE 2015 may be just around the corner, but we want to give you a sneak peek at our line-up anyway:

Scala Solutions

Connected Café
Ordering coffee is now a breeze with our self-serve application. There’s no need for ticket numbers anymore — once customers are in the vicinity of the stand, beacon technology will detect their presence and customers can place and transmit their orders to the Barista. When their coffee is ready, customers will be notified via phone notifications and their pictures will show up on the main display. No time lost waiting for your coffee. Enjoy a Cup o’ Joe at the ISE show!

Lift and Learn
Transform your in-store experience right at the Point-of-Sale with Scala’s ‘Lift and Learn’ solution, featuring Adidas Golf footwear. Stretched LCD screens are used to not only entice customers, but also help them compare and learn more information about products. The ‘Lift and Learn’ display is connected to Scala Content Manager system, allowing retailers to make pricing adjustments instantly using POS data across their network from one central location.

Consumer Fling App
In addition, Scala has created a mobile info application. By holding a smart phone near an beacon tagged product, the article info of that product will show up on the smart phone and the shopper can “swipe” that information from their phone to a large playback screen and look at “the bigger picture”.

Style Advisor
Bring a seamless customer experience to your sales floor with the ‘Style Advisor’ interactive display. It works as an assistive selling tool that allows sales associates to trigger outfit styles on two stacked portrait screens from a tablet when customers approach the area. Outfit choices are relevant to customer gender and specific topics such as latest trends, casual basics or a black tie party. The sales associate app also provides additional product information, browses through other style options and help shoppers pick out clothes for the fitting room.

Heat Map
By aggregating data streams related to customer movement with beacon technology, a heat map is generated and made available to management and staff showing where customers are spending their time in-store. This information gives store planners and managers critical information needed to further optimize planograms and resource planning, messaging, and operations.

Corporate Communications
Pick and choose what corporate information you want to see – through QR codes and NFC (Near Field Communication). By scanning a QR code or using an NFC enabled device, visitors can now determine what company information is displayed on a 4K NEC screen. They can look for the specific information about the services of the company they are interested in.  This is showcased by enabling visitors to choose between various information feeds of one company. They can choose to see the latest projects of the company, news items from the industry, performance indicators of the company and other relevant information.

Each of these solutions will be featured at ISE this year. Stop by the Scala booth (Hall 8 – Stand F195) for your personal walkthrough.
