June20 Launches the Converge Kinetic Display With Target and Verizon Wireless

June20, the company creating a whole new category of kinetic retail displays combining the tactile gratification of in-store shopping with a content-rich online experience, announces a new Converge installation with Target and Verizon Wireless, the latest retailer to test June20’s new digital display solution. Additionally, June20 will debut Converge at Retail 2020, a demo area in the new Innovation Lab at NRF Retail’s Big Show 2018, January 14-16 in New York City.

Through the Converge installation, June20 is building a customized digital display in 150 Target stores to test its interactive, tablet-based solution with Verizon Wireless’ wide selection of smartphones to allow customers to compare devices side-by-side and make informed buying decisions.

“Target, like much of retail today, has a self-service store format, and Converge will be helping the retailer enhance discovery for those customers who would rather learn on their own, or to complement a staff that is already stretched a little thin,” said Paul Chapuis, CEO of June20. “For products that require thorough research and customization, like smartphones, connected health devices, or even cars, Converge is especially helpful in increasing customer browsing time leading to more sales.”

This installation follows several previous field tests, including Sam’s, Staples, and Home Depot. “June20 has had an exciting journey in testing our transformative display solution in multiple retail formats,” said Chapuis. “We’ve learned from every installation, using the insights we’ve received from early customer interaction and store performance to create an even stronger Converge experience. The consumer experience is now truly remarkable, and the tools for retailers & brands are miles ahead of other retail displays.”

With the Converge suite of display solutions, customers can interact with the tablet-and-rail system to get information about complex products, configure design options, discover and compare similar products in a category, or display an expanded range of products and their availability. Customers even have the option to send the information on the tablet directly to their mobile device while standing in the aisle.

June20 will recreate the Converge retail display system at NRF, providing a view into how retailers are currently using the solution to engage customers. Attendees should visit Retail 2020, the “technologies of the future" showcase in the Innovation Lab at NRF, to experience:

  • Converge:Configure: Attendees can use the tablet-and-rail system to configure the details of a Tesla vehicle to experience an entirely new way to buy customized products in new retail environments
  • Converge:Compare: Attendees can compare connected home products Ring, Ring Pro, Kevo and August, simulating the purchase decision-making process
  • Converge:Discover: Attendees can learn more about complex retail solutions GetDor and Brilliant

“We are excited to feature these impressive brands for our Converge demo at Retail 2020, showing how Converge can improve the shopping experience in any retail environment,” says Chapuis. “Converge offers comprehensive information for the retailers and brands, keeps customers engaged and invites them to stay within the retailer’s ecosystem. We are excited for retailers to see what a difference a little technology can make.”

June20 will be at booth IL8 in the Retail 2020 showcase of the Innovation Lab located in the River Pavilion. Media interested in scheduling a demo should contact [email protected]

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
