Intel IoT Wows Retailers with the “Ultimate Store Experience” at NRF15

Attendees at the National Retail Federation (NRF) Big Conference in New York this month saw first-hand how Intel has become a world leader in delivering a personalized retail experience based on Internet of Things solutions. From the popular MemoryMirror* digital mirror now featured in select Neiman Marcus stores, to an interactive multimedia display created for Best Buy that was dubbed “The Ultimate Customer Experience” on NRF social media channels, Intel’s vast IoT-enabled retail solutions demonstrate how retailers can deliver a more personalized customer experience by harnessing valuable consumer data.

The MemoryMirror digital mirror by MemoMi stood out as one of the hottest demos at this month’s National Retail Federation Big Conference, with attendees crowding in the booth to try it for themselves, while others lined up outside for a chance to peer through the window and see it in action. The digital mirror is on an omnichannel platform that Neiman Marcus uses to increase customer loyalty and sales. Through gestures or a mobile app, customers can try items on virtually, get a 360-degree view, see previous selections, and share images of themselves in virtual outfits with friends.
