Solutions in Hall 8 Stand K275 connect online and in-store shopping using cutting edge digital communication

Sittard, NL, February 1st – Scala B.V., leading provider of digital retail experiences, will showcase six shopping solutions that focus on connecting the online and in-store worlds in Hall 8 – Stand K275 at the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE), February 9-12 in Amsterdam. Scala retail experts will show how to personalize the shopping experience down to a single-customer focus using digital, creating deeper brand awareness. Additional booth highlights include engagement and interaction and using fact-based, real-time actionable data to optimize messaging. The new solutions start by drawing the customer into the retail experience, reaching across all digital touchpoints, to create a more meaningful experience and deeper brand awareness. Here’s a glance at the solutions on display in Hall 8 – Stand K275: 

Instore Re-Targeter 
Using beacon technology and connecting to a retailer’s app, it’s possible to detect and act on fact-based consumer profiles and purchase history for in-store customers. Sales associates with live data dashboards can adjust screen content to be as relevant as possible to one specific customer in the store to highlight recently viewed items, suggest complementary purchases and offer tailored promotions.
 
Interactive Fitting Room
When a customer enters the fitting room with an item, product details are detected, triggering compelling images to display on a touchscreen. If something doesn’t fit or the color isn’t right, customers can use the screen to send requests for new items directly to sales associates’ devices. Screens can also be used to suggest complementary items to encourage add-on purchases.  

Instassociate
Customers use a touchscreen kiosk powered by Google Chromebox to request assistance anywhere in the store. The tool connects the customer with sales associates who instantly receive a request-for-help notification on their devices; the customer sees the picture and name of who will meet to help. The tool also reports actionable data such as most active sales associate and request vs. response time. 

Connected Café
Ordering coffee becomes fun and easy using our pre-order app connected to proximity beacons and interactive screens. Customers send in an order for their favorite cup of gourmet coffee from anywhere, any time and include a picture of themselves. Beacons detect when they’ve entered the area, the coffee starts brewing and their own picture pops up on the screen to let them know it’s ready!
 
Lift & Learn
This unique interactive solution helps customers compare and decide at the point of decision and features LG smartphones. Lift one item from a high-end fixture, integrated with anti-theft technology, and embedded RFID tags trigger LED screens and the smartphone screen to update, showing extensive details on that product. When a second item is lifted, the content on the screen splits to display information on both items, instantly helping the shopper compare. And via a new Internet of Things (IoT) concept, the Lift & Learn solution’s look and feel totally changes through one click and will showcase a completely different product; Perfume. Visit our stand and let Scala surprise you!
 
Real-time Insight Reporting
Sales associates can use actionable live-data reporting about in-store customers and behaviors, applying it to optimize ads, promotions and even pricing to in-store screen content. Our reporting capabilities apply to a wide variety of solutions and data such as sales or orders per hour, productivity of associates, customer dwell time and items of highest interest to current audiences.
 
Scala will post videos of all these innovations on their YouTube channel shortly after ISE. The solutions will also be on display next at EuroCIS 2016, 23-25 February in Germany.
