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.
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.
