Whether a consumer is visiting a physical store or an online store, it’s a mission-based experience. Visiting the retail store can be frustrating if you can’t find what you need, lines are too long or there’s an out of stock item you want. Retailers need to leverage data in order to find ways to create richer media experiences in-store like those that consumers experience online. People use cognitive abilities in the physical store and artificial intelligence comes into play with voice-activated messaging and facial recognition at shelf to help consumers find items, present a relevant offer or send an attendant to the consumer location in the aisle for help. Feedback to the retailer is just as important in the physical store as it is online, so closing the loop is critical. Some retailers are beginning to incorporate small terminals after checkout so that the consumer can punch a button – equivalent to the ‘like’ button on social media. Attendees will:
Learn how advances in technology combined with data analytics can allow retailers to understand the shopping trip taking place, to deliver relevant content at the moment and to make the physical trip easier for the consumer.
Understand how truly endless aisles can be created with technology and how the experience can be customized to individuals, providing relevant inspiration, information, and offers based on consumer data and in-store location.
By leveraging data, retailers can create richer media experiences, allowing in-store shoppers to experience the benefits of a digital channel combined with the unique opportunities of physical stores.
