Retail market is at a tipping point. Over the past 12 months the acquisition of Whole Foods by Amazon, the Walmart-Google agreement, and investments by Alibaba, Tencent, and JD.com in retail chains showed the world that physical stores will be at the heart of the omnichannel commerce of the future.
Because we anticipated this change, we are ready to help brick-and-mortar retailers to bridge over to omnichannel commerce. Come and discover at VIVATECH, booth H39, our new VUSION IoT platform dedicated to physical commerce. VUSION is the quintessence of 5 years of intensive R&D that brings together the world’s most advanced ultra-low power IoT communications infrastructure, high resolution E-paper and TFT colour displays, connectivity (NFC, QR code), very high-speed flash, image recognition and data analysis. VUSION’s goal is literally to enable the fusion of physical and digital commerce, to create a real-time digital view of the shelf and consumers, a digital twin of the store. VUSION is also the fusion of hardware and software, making connected labels a gateway to a cloud platform of applications dedicated to store efficiency and consumer connectivity.
