Speaker to be announced From Assisted Service to Customer Self Service: Mobile Technology as an Enabler to Higher Productivity and Improved Customer Experience at Sonae Today’s retailing environment requires companies to achieve high levels of store productivity while delivering great consumer experience. The reality today is that many retailers are dependent on the functionality, tools and information which are mainly available in systems accessible in the store back office area. Given the existing complexities and legacy systems, how do you provide your staff with this anywhere, anytime access without changing current systems? Sonae found the answer by developing its Mobile Portal, a platform for deploying business applications to mobile devices in the enterprise. The new challenges reside in delivering a smooth self service customer experience using the information usually only available to store associates.

  10. 10. IT Conference 2011 – The Consumerism of IT Information Technology Morning Breakout Sessions IT Breakout Session - Integrated IT Delivers Superior Brick and Mortar Store Customer Experience Brick and mortar retail companies face increasing competitive challenges from online retailers and must strengthen the value they bring to customers in product delivery, convenience and reliability. Integrated IT plays a critical role in ensuring that corporate offices orchestrate the timely delivery of products to stores. Retail corporations that adopt integrated Store to Corporate systems help their business lines make the right decisions by tracking customer product preferences and managing product promotions so that intelligent marketing can increase customer loyalty. Learn how Delhaize benefits from integrated Store to Corporate systems with access to 100% on time and accurate data information, transmissions and tracking. freiko Baeyens, Manager IT Operations, Delhaize Group, Belgium Paul french, Vice President, Product and Solutions Marketing, Axway, USA IT Breakout Session - Providing Digital Information Consumers Can Trust Consumers are already using digital product information when they shop for and consume products. Studies show that over 75% of product information available to consumers on their mobile phones is inaccurate. Brands are at risk: inaccurate information erodes consumer trust. But ... brands and retailers are starting to share authentic product information with internet application providers in a standardised way. Pilots are showing positive results: increased efficiency, closer relationships with consumers, increased sales and a proactive approach to regulation on consumer information. richard Copperthwaite, IT Director,, United Kingdom Manufacturer co-speaker to be announced. Session facilitated by GS1. IT Breakout Session - Data Integrity – the Key to Connecting Business for the Consumer Data integrity issues now reach far beyond the “four walls” of a business and their trading partners. Consumers expect high quality product information not only on the pack, but also in store, on retailer websites and through mobile phone apps. Standards are key to managing and sharing good quality product data. A strategic approach to data integrity leads to clear “process” benefits such as increased efficiency... but also impacts the core of brand value: consumer trust. An industry solution providing a “trusted source” of product data is likely to provide benefits of scale to all users. Milan Turk, Managing Director, Global Customer Business Development, Procter & Gamble, USA Retailer co-speaker to be announced. Session facilitated by GS1. Operational Excellence 2011 Shared Plenary Afternoon Session Keynote Address – A Catalyst for Change Operational excellence is key to growth. It’s all about breaking down the silos between Supply Chain, IT and Marketing and working together to better serve the consumer. And it’s about retailers and manufacturers combining their minds to find ways to better meet the needs and expectations of the consumers of our products and shoppers in our stores.
