  • ChallengeThe Home Depot wanted to give customers more dynamic information on all of their products from a variety of different media. It turned to QR Codes as a flexible tool, and needed a centralized code management platform to work across multiple divisions within the organization.The Scanlife SolutionThe Home Depot has deployed hundreds of codes from the platform on media like newspaper circulars, in-store signage, local events, and more. Each of the codes link to relevant content based on the product the customer is scanning with options like video demos, useful tips, and even an option to “buy it now.”Tags:#mobile #Qrcodes#retail #cpg#engage #enrich#multichannel#jessica

  • 7% of a retailer’s unique monthly visitors are on iPads, it’s a safe bet it’s time for an iPad app. That’s why Inc., also known as, has today released an iPad app that gives consumers using the mega-popular tablets access to the e-retailer’s complete inventory. With the app, Overstock customers can seek out fantastic deals and with just a couple of finger taps, purchase brand name products at up to 70% off. This successfully improves upon the mobile website, with a clean, dual-column browsing layout featuring large pictures and product ratings.Social networking is one new element that’s present in the app. Users who find a good deal can share it with their friends and family on Facebook and Twitter.Searching for a specific item is a simple task, with filters for top sellers, review ratings, price, and new arrivals. The app takes advantage of multi-touch gestures like pinch-to-zoom, swiping, and infinite scroll. It also provides access to’s customer care team for help with product questions and other information.Each day customers can access a Loft-O lottery game, giving a chance to win special discounts towards purchases.The app enables customers to search, browse and purchase products. It opens with a splash of imagery, five rotating hero shots atop the home screen. A bar on the home screen includes buttons to navigate by all product categories, search all products and sign in to an account.Two key features of the app are “infinite scrolling” and social sharing, says Sam Peterson, senior vice president of marketing at Infinite scrolling is a term used by tablet site and app developers to describe the feature that enables a shopper to swipe down on the screen and continue to see product after product without the need to refresh the screen. That’s different from e-commerce sites, which present search results divided into pages, requiring a shopper to click to a new page for more results.Another feature, Lott-O, a virtual scratch coupon, is undeniably fun: Each day, users are presented with a full screen of the familiar gray found on scratch-off lottery tickets. Rubbing your finger across the screen rubs the gray off, revealing a discount code underneath. Come back to Lott-O later on the same day and the same code will still be there, with your finger marks still in place.Tags: #retail #ecommerce#mobile #tablet#engage #enrich#jessica

What have you learned, where are resources allocated?  Business goals • Focus on end goal, enrich and engage can coexist, but should not necessarily do so from the start; • What metrics matter, go beyond downloads to look at active users, cross channel pull through, segmented sales metrics.  App design • Four models are most popular in mobile today among winners doing things differently, there will be more; • Novelty of Experience is most important, solve actual – not perceived – user problems© 2012 Altimeter Group
