Infusion's Smart Designs and Advanced Technology Are Revolutionizing the Modern Retail Experience

See how Infusion achieves this from January 13-16 in New York City

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- (Marketwired) -- 12/19/13 -- Leading retailers from around the world have partnered with Infusion to transform traditional brick and mortar experiences to engage and delight consumers. From January 13-16, 2014, to coincide with NRF's "The Big Show" in New York City, Infusion will showcase inspiring design, cutting-edge technology, and the insights needed to create enhanced customer experiences for brands like L'Oreal, Richtree Natural Market Restaurants, RadioShack, Build-A-Bear Workshop and Mashreq Bank. Members of the media are invited to join Infusion for an exclusive and interactive retail innovation showcase, being held at Infusion's New York Experience Lounge.

"Technology has forever changed the shopping experience," said Peter Rivera, VP and Executive Creative Director, Infusion. "Digital technology is the tool to engage today's tech-savvy consumers. Edgy brands offering personalized in-store experiences find they are able to re-focus fickle consumers and draw them back into the fold as repeat customers."

La Roche-Posay, the premiere skincare brand of beauty giant L'Oreal, brought brick and mortar together with a hands-on digital experience to the streets of New York. Launched in Madison Square Park at the end of June, La Roche-Posay hosted consumers and celebrities at its S.O.S SaveOurSkin "Parasols of Protection" event, incorporating a digital wall experience to capture both the imagination and content.

David Horton, Chief Transformation Officer, Mashreq Bank - one of the UAE's leading financial institutions - said, "Our new interactive branches are an industry first. Our customers live a digital lifestyle every day; now at our branches, they can expect the same enriched experiences they have with technology with this modernized bank."

Visionary retailer Build-A-Bear Workshop selected Infusion to be their core User Experience and Technology partner in re-imagining each step of a cherished brand experience. Since the first "Store of the Future" was rolled out in September of 2012, in-store sales at the digitally-enhanced locations have increased between 20 and 30 percent, a figure unprecedented in the retail space.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
