Products Faster Using Their Own Devices, Enhances Customer Experience and Service
Charlotte, NC, April 14, 2010 – TreoSystems announced today its partnership with Flip Pocket, a leading provider of custom mobile applications, to expand its innovative iPAL product locator system as a mobile application for consumers.
TreoSystems delivers item locator and wayfinding solutions to the retail industry designed specifically to help both customers and employees find products faster and easier in large stores. Normally deployed on self-service kiosks in stores, with this announcement shoppers will be able to download the iPAL application directly to a variety of mobile platforms, search for an item in any of the retailer’s stores, and be shown not only the exact location of the item within a particular store but also suggestions for related items they may need. Other pertinent information can also be presented, such as store-specific coupons or promotions, shopping lists, product information and pricing, all designed to enhance each shopper’s store experience.
“This partnership is a game changer for us”, said Robert Johnson, president and co-founder of TreoSystems, “The industry is going ‘mobile’ with customers demanding more interaction on their mobile device, and we were looking for the perfect partner to assist us in bringing the iPAL solution directly into the hands of the consumer. This is a great opportunity to provide retailers with a real tool that will generate customer loyalty and greater customer service, and Flip Pocket has the expertise to develop a truly revolutionary solution for the retail industry”.
