Agenda- continued
  • Wireless Market Trends
  • New Market Consumer Dynamics
  • Make a difference in the Store Experience
  • Technology the tool of Empowerment
  • Roadmap to Success

Current Industry Dynamics
  • There is a tremendous growth of perimeter
    businesses in retailing because of changing
    lifestyle attitudes - quick, easy - I am willing
    to pay for convenience
  • Reduction in capital asset and labor resource
    spending is mandated by the boardroom
  • Point of sale has to be scan-capable and able to
    keep track of more complicated promotions and
    offers
  • In-store and channel transactions have to be
    instantaneous and responsive to the customers
    identity
  • Merchandising must be specific to smaller
    segments of the population, while being able to
    attract larger segments successfully
  • Product allocation, assortment, pricing, and
    promotion must be dead-on in where, when, and how
    it is placed in front of the customer. Every
    time!

10
Changing Market Dynamics
  • Growing concentration of leading brands and power
    retailers
  • Bankruptcies and liquidations closing down the
    non-competitive
  • Experimentation with complementary business
    partnerships
  • Identification of new points of access for
    consumers, including pervasive and mobile
    technologies
  • An increasing need to respond to consumer shifts
    including demographic lifestyle, and buying
    pattern trends

11
The Changing Consumer
  • More knowledgeable about comparable product costs
    and price.
  • More changeable in retail and brand preferences,
    showing little loyalty.
  • Self-sufficient, yet demanding more information
  • Hold high expectations of service
  • Expecting personalization
  • Driven by three new currencies time, value, and
    information.

12
New Market Trends
  • Consolidation in the marketplace continues to
    change the landscape of retail/wholesale,
    manufacturing and service provider sectors
  • Industries are positioning by creating global
    alliances (Vertically Integrating)
  • It is becoming increasingly important for
    companies to manage their capital efficiently as
    well as controlling their processes
  • Consumer Retention is becoming more important due
    to increasing competition
  • Customized, flexible products will be the future
    and are expected at the Point of Sale
  • NEED TO MANAGE THE FIRST THOUGHT IN THE LAST MILE
    WITH WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY!

13
Retailing 2001 is about the End Customer
  • The key to multi-channel integration is the
    ability to utilize the information collected from
    all consumer touch points and make the
    information actionable throughout the value
    chain.
  • New measurements need to be in place to measure
    performance. Multi-channel retailers must now
    measure the variables that affect satisfaction in
    a specific channel while establishing uniform
    standards across all channels. Regardless of the
    sales channel they are using, customers must feel
    like royalty.

Positive Contextual Experiences equal Consumer
Loyalty
Contextual experiences (conditions) directly
impact a customers perception of vendor
value. Value experiences include and transcend
monetary value and product-based experiences.
Laying the foundations for the store of the
future is the key to enabling technologies that
will support the total customer experience of
feeling understood, connected, and delighted.

The Way You Manage Your Store Experience-Now very
important
(hidden) Store managers can receive remote
real-time product movement updates throughout the
day. POS data can be remotely retrieved and can
be analyzed immediately to allow for
replenishment / replacement where appropriate in
order to immediate customer demand.
(hidden) Lost sales can be reduced as customers
no longer face long POS queues, minimizing
customer abandonment. Responsive environments
effect efficient store / queue management.
Back-Office
Sales Floor
Mass retailing is founded on the premises of
speed, ease of use, and convenience. Managing
the experience means excelling at being a
convenience provider.
20
Tickles and Whispers in Mass Retailing drives a
valued experience
  • (hidden)
  • Responsive environments notify resources how best
    to manage them
  • alert me to open up another cash register line
    because of long queues
  • tell me to adjust the temperature
  • (hidden)
  • A more efficient labor force is better educated,
    more assisted in real time, and suffers from last
    turnover
  • remind me about cross-sells and up-sells
  • remind me about this customers preferences
  • help me to be more knowledgeable in front of my
    customer
  • help me to be more knowledgeable in front of my
    employees

Tickle Technology
Whisper Technology
Technology becomes ubiquitous as we progress from
fingertip, to voice, to bio-metric, to
human-centric experiences that are human aware
and dialogic, natural, and easy.
21
Moving from Mass Service to Individualized
Experiences
  • (hidden)
  • The responsive environment responds to such
    conditions as
  • who are the people in a given space?
  • where are they (geographic and proximal)?
  • what are they doing?
  • The enabled environment delivers on the promise
    of mass retailing based on individuals within a
    space

(hidden) Consumers have more choice than ever
and so mass retailers need to grab and retain
relationships by extending their value, presence,
and opportunity. By using aggregates of
Wireless technology to create dynamic
individualized experience retailers can lead the
market and capture the attention of their
customers. Customer Retention
Responsive Environment
Individualized Service
Mass retailers can now use wireless technologies
to get beyond the last mile and become the
first thought.

26
Store Management
  • The store will be the place where several
    emerging technologies will be used
  • Cellular
  • 802.11b
  • Bluetooth
  • RFID
  • Smart Card
  • Kiosk/Vending
  • The in-store experience will combine customer
    satisfiers such as line busting and location
    based services and enhanced shopping with
    cross/up sales potential.

27
Infrastructure for Enablement - Wireless
  • 802.11b is a high speed, reliable solution for
    in-store wireless solutions
  • Bluetooth is the 10 meter RF solution intended
    for device to device interaction
  • Cellular voice networks will incorporate data
    services at higher transfer rates using GPRS
  • Existing data services only networks will be used
    for devices like Palm VII and RIM

28
Infrastructure for Enablement - RFID
  • RFID cost will drop to an acceptable price point
    when multiple uses are incorporated
  • Distribution
  • Inventory management
  • Point of Sale
  • Smart Home applications
  • An example of cost justification is the use of
    RFID for baggage handling at San Francisco
    Airport
  • The ultimate goal of RFID is reliability over
    life of item and pervasive penetration of
    scanners that take advantage of ID. For example,
    RFID embedded in my shirt so that if I drop it
    into washer at home or take it to laundry, it
    will be handled correctly.

29
Reasons to use WLANs
Enterprises have many different reasons for
implementing Wireless LAN solutions -- but
network flexibility and mobility are the most
common.
  • To extend a wired LAN Network Mobility
  • To network difficult-to-wire locations
  • Network Flexibility
  • To extend a ready-to-use LAN across locations
  • LAN-in-a-box
  • To provide LAN access to mobile users
  • To better understand and know your customers
  • To provide location based servicesWhere I am
  • Product Location Where do I go

Redefining the Internet - Redefining Lifestyles
with Cash Alternatives
McDonalds restaurants will test FAST LANE
transponder technology in the some of their
restaurant drive-thrus. "Transponders will allow
our customers to pay for their favorite
McDonalds food like the Big Mac and our French
fries without leaving their car or using cash,"
said Lambrechts. "We expect this new technology
will add to the fun and excitement of McDonalds
by improving the speed and efficiency in our
drive-thru service for on-the-go New England
travelers."
Many People consider a smart card to be a PC in
the pocket. A smart card is a credit card style
card that has an embedded memory chip that stores
data and applications relative to the user - that
can be coupled with an identification feature,
such as PIN, biometrics, or other types of
security checks. Smart cards are portable,
secure, interoperable, and convenient.
The iButton is ideal for any application where
information needs to travel with a person or
object. iButton can grant access to a building, a
piece of equipment, can be used to store cash for
small transactions, such as transit systems,
parking lots, and vending machines.
