    • ConceptualizaCon    Dynamic  InformaCon  Experience  is  a  system  providing  the  users  content/informaCon  that  is  very  relevant  to  them.  And  this  content/informaCon  is  completely  dependent  on  the  user/users  using  the  system  making  it  dynamic.  Example:  •  [User  1]  using  the  system  alone  –    Experience  1  •  [User  1  +  User  2]  using  the  system    together–  Experience  2  The  kind  of  informaCon  experienced  in  both  the  cases  is  not  same.  Enhancing  the  Retail  Experience  of  the  Consumer  –  Final  PresentaCon   19

    • Discussion  •  The  soluCon  proposed  aims  to  provide   a  new  choice  in  the  way  to  shop  inside   a  mall.  It  does  not  aim  to  replace  the   human  involvement  in  the  shopping   experience  of  a  consumer.  •  It  is  definitely  not  a  replacement  for   friendly  salespersons.  Smart  buy  is  the   soluCon  to  the  consumers’  need  to   accomplish  tasks  on  their  own.  •  It  is  designed  to  be  applicable  in  a  very   near  future  scenario  of  Indian  malls.  Enhancing  the  Retail  Experience  of  the  Consumer  –  Final  PresentaCon   41  
    • Discussion  •  As  of  now,  the  kiosk  aims  to  help  a   consumer  compare  2  products  but  it   can  be  extended  to  do  the  same  for   comparing  more  than  2  products.  •  This  whole  shopping  experience  helps   the  consumer  to  shop  beker  and  take   decisions  beker.  •  It  was  a  challenge  to  provide  a  soluCon   for  a  variety  of  crowds  in  the  Indian   retail  scenario.  And  this  soluCon  aims   to  cater  more  towards  the  age  group  of   urban  adult  of  the  age  group   18yrs-­‐40yrs.  Enhancing  the  Retail  Experience  of  the  Consumer  –  Final  PresentaCon   42
