Retailigence Closes-the-Loop on Rapidly Growing Mobile Product Search

Retailigence (www.retailigence.com), the leading Online-to-Offline (O2O) local marketing and commerce platform, announced today the immediate availability of a new reserve online for in-store pick-up solution, pre-connected to tens of millions of shoppers using various third party mobile shopping applications integrated with Retailigence. The new feature allows these shoppers to search for, find and reserve products for purchase at local retailers. Retailers implementing this new omni-channel solution from Retailigence gain incremental sales revenue while offering their customers the convenience of online shopping with immediate in-store pickup.

Much like online reservation systems for the restaurant industry, the Retailigence platform allows consumers to make reservations for retail products via the Retailigence in-app interface, retailer shopping apps or the retailer’s own site. However, unlike other solutions, the Retailigence solution is pre-connected to billions of dollars of demand through the entire Retailigence appNET ecosystem of third party mobile shopping apps.

“Retailers and brands need to take advantage of every opportunity to engage shoppers and move them along the path to purchase as they search and browse online, from their mobile devices, and even in-store as they walk the aisles,” said Jeremy Geiger, CEO of Retailigence. “Retailigence’s new reserve online for in-store pick-up feature provides retailers with the flexibility to offer this highly engaging omni-channel shopping experience to their customers and provides shoppers with the convenience of buying online plus the instant gratification of local pickup.”

Furthermore, compared to traditional eCommerce, this option eliminates delivery wait times and shipping fees, saving shoppers time and money.

“Roughly 95 percent of consumer buying happens offline, but the internet now influences nearly $2 trillion in offline spending," said Greg Sterling, senior analyst at Opus Research. “The future of digital marketing is bridging the digital and real worlds; reserve or buy online with in-store pickup helps close that attribution loop.”

Retailigence matches in-store products with shoppers who are looking to buy products locally through its appNET community – a rapidly expanding network of more than a thousand independent mobile app publisher partners offering engaging apps for social shopping, product discovery, digital catalogs, local maps and navigation, virtual reality and more.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, a Developer Advocate with IBM Cloud Data Services, discussed...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.
