BOSTON, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Mobiquity (www.mobiquityinc.com), a professional services firm creating innovative mobile solutions and apps that drive business value, today announced a webinar with popular lifestyle brand Alex and Ani that will examine how mobile technology can drive significant improvement in retail sales, customer satisfaction and engagement.
WHEN: Wednesday, March 13, 2013, 2 p.m. ET
WHO: Ty Rollin, chief architect, Mobiquity
Joe Lezon, chief technology officer, Alex and Ani
Rollin and Lezon will discuss how mobile technology is being deployed in retail stores to increase sales and put the brakes on showrooming.
Rollin will outline four proven ways mobile is changing the retail experience, including kiosks and mobile point-of-sale (POS) options (which speed up selection and payment), virtual shopping walls and other line-busting options.
Lezon will explain how Alex and Ani deployed a mobile point-of-sale (POS) solution co-developed with Mobiquity that contributed significantly to a 318 percent increase in comparable sales during the last year. The mobile payment (mPayment) solution reduced long lines and allowed sales associates to more directly interact with shoppers, improving the customer experience.
