  • Today’s consumer has unprecedented access to product and pricing information. Virtual merchandising technology allows retailers to extend the benefits of online shopping into the physical store. Interactive in-store apps blend the best of both worlds, physical and virtual, for an amazing in-store experience.

    Beyond converting sales, omnichannel is about creating a consistent experience across all channels. By extending shelf space to a limitless number of products and offering access to online product information and content, virtual merchandising is a new and exciting way for customers to shop and experience your brand.

    During this session, we’ll discuss how bringing virtual elements into the physical store gives retailers added control, flexibility and customizability to the customer experience.

    Speakers:
    Alen Puaca, Creative Director, iQmetrix
    Perry Kramer, Vice President, Boston Retail Partners
  • Retail Winners recognize that customer service is the single most important driver of success in today’s omnichannel marketplace, and they are racing to deploy all their human, store and technology assets in order to compete.

    Recognizing the need to provide the best omnichannel experience in the most cost-efficient way, retailers are investing in a central commerce hub as the answer to this challenge. Maintaining multiple, siloed systems is expensive and puts retailers at risk of delivering a disjointed experience.
    At end of day, omnichannel customer service is what customers expect, and is the cost of doing business today. Where once it was a differentiator, excellent omnichannel customer service must be provided and promoted, or retailers will not be getting the wallet share they’re targeting. In this webinar, we’ll explore effective strategies and technologies to improve customer service and re-engage disaffected consumers.
  • It’s time for retailers to throw out the idea that workforce management exists only to control labor costs. If implemented effectively, WFM solutions can help businesses meet the demands of the modern consumer and provide a new lever for driving revenue.

    This webcast will explore how retailers can maximize revenues with smart schedules that improve customer service by deploying sufficient employees with the right knowledge and selling skills at the right time. Using business driver data like traffic, conversions and predicted sales, WFM and labor forecasting can highlight the peak hours for your business and help you understand where you may be missing opportunities or have a chance to reinvest your labor budget. Learn how optimized schedules and accurate labor forecasting can deliver better business results.

  • Investing in Big Data without considering analytics is akin to ordering fish without chips; a key ingredient is missing. Big Data platforms provide a scalable, economic, and extremely flexible platform that naturally expands the horizons for analytically-driven business insights.

    This presentation argues the need to effectively pair Big Data – and Hadoop – infrastructure with business intelligence (BI) and analytics tooling to deliver real value and sustainable ROI. It highlights the importance of factoring in Big Data as a first class data citizen in an enterprise’s data management and business analytics strategy.
  • Big Data solutions are often designed and built in a hurry and subsequently turn out to be difficult to maintain, scale and evolve after going into production.
    Further problems may occur when multiple initiatives “bump up” against each other, proving to be incompatible due to the way they’ve been engineered.
    This overview-level presentation distils some of the engineering best practices that are surfacing in the industry and suggests how a company can develop a consistent architecture that will underpin a wide range of different business requirements, yet can be implemented incrementally depending upon the company’s priorities and budget.
    Specifically, it outlines how to complement existing ETL processes and enterprise data warehouses during data ingestion; how to make the data storage invulnerable to change regardless of unforeseen business needs; how to prepare consistent pre-calculated data for consumption by all business communities; the role of in memory products; processing near real-time data streams; the increasing need for accurate operational dashboards.
  • Cloud services brought democratization of big data – everybody can build as big a solution as he needs. Many Amazon Web Services customers use big data solutions today.

    Join Steffen Krause as he talks about the architecture of Big Data solutions in the cloud and about some some real world customer examples. He will also explain how Big Data solutions in the cloud integrate with other systems. It's not always Hadoop., and show use cases for both Hadoop and for Data Warehouse based solutions
  • Business and IT are facing the challenge of getting real and urgent value from ever-expanding information sources. Building independent silos of big data analytics is no longer enough. True progress comes only by integrating data from traditional operational and informational sources with the new sources that are becoming available, whether from social media or interconnected machines.

    In this webinar, Dr. Barry Devlin describes the thinking, architecture, tools and methods needed to achieve a new joined-up, comprehensive data environment.
  • Front-line stories from Boise State, Green Clinic Health Systems and The CLM Group

    Yesterday’s service desk is fast disappearing. New technology and the eradication of geographic boundaries is changing customer expectations and service desk demands.

They will also participate in a panel Q&A about increasing the scope of support, handling the impact of systems changes, best practices for maintaining positive customer relationships, and more.
  • Fierce competition in today’s retail marketplace is motivating retailers to upgrade their store analytics capabilities. During this webinar, Russell Evans from ShopperTrak will reveal how next-generation store analytics can help retailers get to know their customers on a more personal level in order to deliver a superior in-store experience. With new types of analytics solutions at their fingertips, retailers can uncover more innovative ways to reach shoppers, resulting in increased transaction size and improved long-term loyalty. Also, by tapping into the latest analytics solutions, retailers will be able to more quickly respond to changing shopper behavior.
  • EXALEAD OnePart is an innovative application for locating and reusing 2D/3D legacy parts, designs, and associated documentation. The intuitive user experience allows designers, engineers, and R&D managers to shorten product development times, improve efficiencies, and lower lifecycle costs.

    Join us to learn how to:

    •Increase Engineering Capacity
    •Accelerate product design and development at lower cost
    •See side-by-side comparison of legacy information about design, component, project or product data
    •Reuse proven best-practice specs, design standards, and post new IP into PLM and ERPs
    OnePart provides cross-product meta-data, shape search, discovery, and visualization, with side-by-side compare of information about a design, part, or component for rapid and thorough investigations of reusable enterprise assets.

    OnePart is NOT an application inside the PLM system, but is a search based solution that can feed the PLM (or any system of record) with newly found IP.

    OnePart is browser-based and works without plugins, meaning no install on user machines and very efficient for new version rollouts.

  • Traditionally catalog syndication has been a tedious, time consuming and error prone manual process that disrupted suppliers’ abilities to effectively update catalogs or item information with their customers. As product lead times shorten, and cycle frequencies increase, syndication is becoming tougher and more critical to manage As a result it can become more expensive to build and maintain, due to the market demands for more dynamic repositories. Continuing existing catalog syndication can be an inefficient model, but one that can easily be changed without risking the benefits of your existing on-prem Item management solution. The benefits are easy to find, and the ROI easy to recognize.



    Hugh Collins, Senior Client Executive at Liaison technologies, will discuss these benefits through case studies and use cases. Whether it be product catalog syndication for retail, or industries such as manufacturing or hospitality, there are benefits that exist across the board.
