ShoppinPal RAMPs up Discussions with Retailers on Mobile CommercePosted by Kush Khandelwal on May 20, 2013
The ShoppinPal team was at the RAMP Commerce & Mobile Retail Services Summit a few weeks ago – our first big retail event where we hosted a booth and were invited to be part of a retailer and solution provider panel discussion.
Our booth got a good deal of attention, in part due our lively customer video featuring Harney & Sons in New York City. And we were pleased to see a great deal of interest among mid-sized retailers in offering their customers a mobile experience.
The solution providers kicked off the conference by introducing themselves and describing the types of partnerships they wanted to establish, which turned out to be extremely useful for us. We were able to immediately identify 4 to 5 prospective strategic partners – one of which, ZooZ, weâ€™ve already started integrating with.
Participating on the panel, â€œMoving From Point-of-Sale to Point-of-Service,â€ was a conference highlight for us. The panel (which included our CEO, Sriram Subramanian) comprised an amazing mix of people on the cutting edge of retail tech, including Dr. Gil Roth, who is head of innovation at Retalix (now part of NCR). Among other topics, the panel discussed (and offered solutions for addressing) the problem of not being able to access data across inventory, POS, and other key retail systems. It was fascinating to learn that the problem is affecting retailers of all sizes and not just the largest retailers.
All in all, RetailRAMP proved to be a fun, positive, and productive conference experience! Weâ€™re already looking for our next conference participation opportunity where we can continue to connect with more retailers and strategic partners.
