In New York City this week, at the National Retail Federation’s Annual Convention & EXPO, there’s a lot of excitement about new technologies in the retail industry. We’re thrilled to be at the show, sharing our Windows Embedded partners’ latest and greatest devices and news.
It’s with great pleasure that I share the news that Panasonic is now part of the Windows Embedded 8 Handheld program, and will be developing new devices based on this next-generation platform.

The fitting room is the crucial place where a customer decides whether to make a purchase. But most of the time, the customer is alone and behind a curtain or door when that decision is made, without any support or assistance from the retailer. At the National Retail Federation Big Show 2014 in New York, Microsoft and Accenture demonstrated the “Connected Fitting Room,” an experience that brings technology into the last “dark channel” of retail: the brick-and-mortar store.
At the National Retail Federation Big Show 2014 in New York, Microsoft is demonstrating a food service point of service (POS) solution based on Windows Embedded that lets businesses use affordable off-the-shelf hardware to simplify customer service and business operations. The solution, a collaborative effort with MICROS, Intel and Dell, offers ease of use through an attractive interface, along with quick deployment and the flexibility to scale from small, independent restaurants up to national chains.

We are only 2 weeks into 2014, and I’m sure many of you are asking yourselves and your colleagues: “What are going to be the key trends for this year in enterprise?”
In a recent blog post, John Jester, General Manager of the Enterprise and Partner Business at Microsoft UK, outlined his thoughts on the key trends for this year, and he points out that the Internet of Things will this year come to fruition.

Mobile POS is hot! The idea of extending the traditional point-of-service function using a mobile form factor appeals to retailers for numerous reasons: it enables retail associates to complete transactions away from the traditional POS device (i.e. line-busting), creates a more personalized sales experience, and allows associates to spend more time on the floor, increasing productivity and sales.
Glancing through the Big !deas sessions for “retail’s big show,” next week’s National Retail Federation’s (NRF’s) Annual Convention & EXPO in New York City, I noted at least half a dozen sessions that touch on mobile POS. To get more insight into this industry trend as our team prepares for NRF, I spoke with Gary Price, director of sales for Retail Solutions at NEC Corporation of America (NEC), one of our new intelligent systems partners. NEC implements end-to-end intelligent systems solutions for retailers using Microsoft and Windows Embedded technologies, and provides full lifecycle management. With this background, Price fully understands the promise—as well as the realities—of mobile POS.
