RichRelevance Launches Relevance in Store

RichRelevance®, the global leader in omnichannel personalization, today announced Relevance in Store, the next era of data-driven retail. Relevance in Store is a new strategic initiative that gives retailers a blueprint and tool kit for optimizing the in-store experience to drive product discovery, consideration and sales.

Now, with Relevance in the Store, retailers can immediately access RichRelevance’s powerful DataMesh platform and team of retail data experts to seamlessly merge online and offline data sources and rapidly build custom applications that effectively engage shoppers at every store touchpoint — front entrance, aisle, kiosk, associate, dressing room, and checkout — exposing shoppers to the right inventory and enhancing product discovery.

Relevance in Store also debuts the RichRelevance Omnichannel Lab, a fully-functional retail test environment equipped with iBeacons, point of sale systems and digital surfaces, which when combined with mobile SDK and omnichannel data, enable RichRelevance clients and partners to create in-store personalized experiences for consumers.

“Online commerce is rapidly growing, but still only accounts for 6% of sales in the U.S.,” said David Selinger, CEO of RichRelevance. “The battle for the future of retail will be won or lost in the store. Relevance in Store optimizes personalization for all customer touchpoints in the physical retail environment and creates new opportunities for retailers to engage shoppers, empower associates and build customer lifetime value.”

“RichRelevance has the best technology, solutions and team of experts to arm retailers with what they need to win against Amazon,” said Sandhya Venkatachalam, Founding Partner at Centerview Capital. “They truly understand the challenges retailers face and are already #1 in data-driven eCommerce personalization solutions for the biggest brands in the world. Relevance in Store changes the game entirely by creating a physical shopping experience that is as adaptive and personalized as online – with tremendous gains for retailers who participate.”

Relevance in Store: Use Cases

For the first time ever, retailers can use a single view of the customer to deliver the most relevant offers, promotions, products and notifications in real time – as the shopper moves through the store. Each experience is fine-tuned in real time based on changing individual and group behavior, as well as the retailer’s own dynamic business goals, through the combined power of RichRelevance’s cloud-based platform, which is built on a service-oriented architecture (SOA), and RichRelevance’s personalization strategies, best practices and experts.

Retail use cases include:

  • Store Entrance: A shopper is digitally greeted with relevant offers, promotions and notifications upon entering the store – the same level of personal attention expected of a top-notch sales associate.
  • Aisle: A shoppers’ own behavior combines with online and offline data to expose the most relevant inventory in real time, creating an “endless aisle” of product and offers.
  • Kiosk: A price check kiosk presents appropriate cross-sells and additional details on items in a shopper’s cart.
  • Associate: Associates present the relevant upsell and cross-sell opportunities, becoming category experts with minimal training. For other retail brands, associates provide a new level of personal attention and service, ready to appear when a shopper lingers at a rack or unlocking dressing rooms at just the right time.
  • Checkout: Store receipts and follow-up emails build customer lifetime value through personalized messages that provide a discount or inspire participation in a loyalty program.

Microservices Articles
Containers, microservices and DevOps are all the rage lately. You can read about how great they are and how they’ll change your life and the industry everywhere. So naturally when we started a new company and were deciding how to architect our app, we went with microservices, containers and DevOps. About now you’re expecting a story of how everything went so smoothly, we’re now pushing out code ten times a day, but the reality is quite different.
"We do one of the best file systems in the world. We learned how to deal with Big Data many years ago and we implemented this knowledge into our software," explained Jakub Ratajczak, Business Development Manager at MooseFS, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Gone are the days when application development was the daunting task of the highly skilled developers backed with strong IT skills, low code application development has democratized app development and empowered a new generation of citizen developers. There was a time when app development was in the domain of people with complex coding and technical skills. We called these people by various names like programmers, coders, techies, and they usually worked in a world oblivious of the everyday pri...
Traditional IT, great for stable systems of record, is struggling to cope with newer, agile systems of engagement requirements coming straight from the business. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, William Morrish, General Manager of Product Sales at Interoute, will outline ways of exploiting new architectures to enable both systems and building them to support your existing platforms, with an eye for the future. Technologies such as Docker and the hyper-convergence of computing, networking and...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addres...
"We focus on SAP workloads because they are among the most powerful but somewhat challenging workloads out there to take into public cloud," explained Swen Conrad, CEO of Ocean9, Inc., in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the p...
