Guided shopping experiences, focusing on value-add narratives for retailers and marketers:
Personalization at Scale—The advent of social media influence has evolved and shaped the way we shop online, and our fashion-focused solution leans into this behavior and makes it more actionable by bringing it into a retail environment, allowing for the best of both worlds. Using a touchscreen display, shoppers browse, curate and choose the looks they like, and immediately try on, share or buy with one tap.
Automation—STRATACACHE has integrated ordering kiosks with facial recognition technology and a robotic cocktail machine to create a memorable, streamlined ordering experience. After choosing or designing a favorite drink from our self-ordering kiosks, featuring our own commercial-grade tablets, the robot gets to work preparing the order. By automating certain tasks in the customer experience, sales associates are free to concentrate on shopper interaction and store operations.
Assisted Selling—This solution focuses on two key areas that drive the in-store experience — clarity when comparing products and delivery of a personalized, memorable shopping trip. Our tablet-based experience streamlines product discovery for the shopper, offering unobtrusive upsell opportunities throughout the experience. The solution also provides a tool for sales associates to have insight into the shopper’s preferences before offering assistance, ultimately delivering a concierge-level shopping experience.
Customer Loyalty—We’re evolving the drive thru, providing convenience and improving speed of service for loyalty app users in a retail pharmacy environment. Using digital displays along with sensor and voice technology, our smart drive thru solution identifies app users and delivers a personalized experience to loyal customers, building a stronger relationship with the customer and inspiring repeat visits. Digital displays help associates prepare orders while customer-facing displays deliver a guided experience, presenting medication details and prescription reminders during dwell time.
