How emerging technologies are changing the retail shopping experience


Exciting times they are. Retailers now have the opportunity to interact and create customer experiences in ways not previously available, unless you had access to funding equivalent to a major movie production. 3D Volumetric Augmented Reality is an area Beyond Retail is very excited about. We see opportunities in mobile technology coupled with AR coming to the market this year that will change the cost bottle neck and the way retailers think about the use of AR. The article below by Oracle is a good starting point. Talk to Beyond Retail and discover the AR opportunities waiting to be exploited by your business.

We’re in a particularly exciting time when it comes to retail customer experiences, as emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), chatbots, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) present new possibilities for engaging with customers both in stores and online.

4 rules for getting consumers to opt-in to SMS marketing campaigns

It is a question that has bedeviled concert performers since the beginning — how do you get people in seats for an event?

Unless the act is Taylor Swift or Coldplay, both of whom could sell out Madison Square Garden on a rainy Tuesday in February, there are few shows that can sell themselves. The vast majority require the assistance of savvy promoters to assemble a receptive audience for the performer.

This same question of “how do I build an audience” applies to SMS marketing. In an age where most messages (email, phone calls, and the like) are routinely screened and ignored by consumers, text messages enjoy an almost one-hundred percent open rate, according to Mobile Marketing Watch, creating an opportunity for Taylor Swift-level revenue generation.
