    I want to look at an area where I think we could see a big divergent step and that is in how we pay for things in retail and a complete move away from the old credit cards, cash cards, in fact every other kind of card. I want us to imagine a world where all payments to go on to mobile all ticketing goes to mobile, and just about everything in our lives is no within a smartphone-type device.

    Outdoor Voices | Cloud based RFID inventory management case study

    Outdoor Voices is a company that is making technical apparel for what we call ‘The Recreationalist’. The Recreationalist to us is someone that just loves to get outdoor, loves to get moving and loves to have fun. One of the main reasons that Outdoor Voices started online and then started a physical brick-and-mortar experience was we knew that the online experience wasn’t everything we could bring to our customers, wasn’t everything we could bring to the community. They are coming in to have a full experience in the store and outside of the store. So a lot of our engagement with the client is to really get them involved in…

    Retail Business Tips : Retail Business: Interior Products

    I’m Mike Campbell with Doggy Styles in Beverly Hills California and I would like to talk about selling interior products.

It really does help us to sell our home products. We also carry stairs.…

    She borrowed her mom’s savings to build a multimillion-dollar fashion empire | Make It International

    Augmented reality runways, automated queuing systems, online availability checks They’re just some of the ways Rachel Lim is using technology to reinvent retail. It’s the omnichannel approach that’s helped take this Singaporean entrepreneur’s female fashion line from a $300 side hustle in 2005 to a multimillion-dollar international fashion empire.

And it’s a good job too – because she bet the house on it. I was bonded to the government, so I…
