  10. 10. Main Current Approaches Omitted for now: cell tower, camera How Comment WiFi Either fingerprint or triangulate WiFi Access Points or Beacons All mobile platform vendors use this (see next) Beacons Dedicated Beacons used to mark areas or zones Apple iBeacon recently became the poster child for this Light Special Lights emit a unique code invisible to human eye Front facing camera detects the code Sound Sound inaudible to the human ear ShopKick pioneered this in US Fingerprint of magnetic field variations used to fix position Area is first mapped in order to create a magnetic field map Direction, Speed, Turns, Height, Requires a known fixed starting point (often GPS or WiFi) Magnetic Dead Reckoning

  14. 14. Some considerations High level aspects to consider 1 Infrastructure Some solutions require installation of infrastructure, such as beacons, WiFi, or lights. Accuracy Accuracy varies both by type of solution, and by density of infrastructure in some cases 3 TCO Does the solution require power source, battery replacement? Will it work over mobile product cycles? 4 Control 2 Who else can or could use the infrastructure?

  28. 28. @ Branch
  29. 29. @Branch In-store location and the customer journey Wait / browse Arrival Welcome / Greeting. Personal concierge (“whisk away”). Alert to staff member. Self-service on phone - “how can we help today?”. “Let us come to you”. Insertion point for relevant information, offer, or reminder. Here to pick something up? Timer for being dealt with. Partner brands? 1 2 4 Departure Thanks. “by the way…”, RAOK. 3 Action Pick up. Queue jump. Get seen with reduced friction, uncertainty.
  30. 30. @ elsewhere?
  31. 31. The app as “gold card”?

  34. 34. Things to consider Think about… 1 2 3 4 5 Whole solution Privacy Data Customers Trials Cost, ubiquity, accuracy, likely changes One word: Nordstorm! Opt-in, opt-out. What’s best practise? Can you handle, process, manage the data that will flow? Handled poorly, can spook people Timings, customer segmentation, use-cases (simple!)
