Posted January 5, 2018

Food-truckPop-up retail and mobile food trucks isn’t new. It is a secret weapon that small business owners use to get their product out into the world and into the hands of their customers. In the pop up world, business owners will find a venue like a coffee shop, store, craft fair, or farmer’s market, then set up a retail or food shop for a limited of time: anything from one day to a few weeks.

This is an opportunity for VARs to serve a growing trend, particularly because of the mobility and connectivity to customers are key for business owners running pop up shops.

What’s the point in pop-up?

Mobile locations are more flexible for entrepreneurs looking to grow a brand and gain funding without risking everything on their venture.

  • It’s authentic. Business owners are standing behind the customers, answering questions, building credibility, and connecting with the customer.
  • It’s special. The pop-up won’t be there forever, the perfect time for an impulse purchase.
  • It’s affordable. Your expenses are low, so you can just focus on the price points.
  • It’s mobile. Businesses travel to their customers, which is a great way to test the viability of a new business or a way to expand an existing business in a new location.

Solutions for a Pop- Up:

Pop-Up shops are becoming an accessible venture for many owners to expand on their current businesses without needing to fully commit to purchasing a location. Popular restaurants can simply park their food truck near a sporting event or music festival and capitalize on an event even if their actual location is far away.

Check out the solutions we have available for a pop-up. Feel free to contact one of our dedicated account managers if you have any questions to pick out the tools you will need in your mobile business.

 


Into the Cold: Cold Storage Mobile Computers

Posted November 22, 2017

Warm garments are essential for warehouse workers to perform daily operations in the cold, the same goes for mobile computers. Mobile computers must be built to perform under these demanding condition.

Moving a standard mobile computer in and out between normal and cold areas is extremely hard on the device even if it’s ruggedized. Short term: the LCD screen fogs up, batteries won’t release enough energy and processors may not perform optimally. Long term: Screens and housing will become brittle and repeated condensation can cause internal components to corrode, short-circuit, and fail.

If you work in an environment that is typically exposed to cold temperatures, consider the devices below:

Motorola‘s Omnii XT15f Mobile Computer
Omnii XT15

  • Lorax Scanner
  • 1/2D options
  • 11 a/b/g
  • Bluetooth
  • Windows CE 6.0
  • Condensation Resistant Chiller Model is built for -4º F / -20º C
  • Condensation Free Arctic Model is built for -22º F / -30º C
  • Screen defroster option

 

Honeywell’s CK75 Cold Storage Mobile Computer

CK75

  • Cold storage
  • Windows or Android OS option
  • Standard or extended range scanner
  • 11 a/b/g/n
  • 2D scanner (scans both 1D and 2D)
  • Standard Unit is built for -4º F / -20º C
  • Cold Storage Unit is built for -22º F / -30º C

Thriving in cold conditions requires the ability to adapt to the environment. Being prepared with the right resources and equipment can lower operating costs by increasing productivity and decrease equipment down time.

Shadow QR Code Campaign Increases Sales 25%

Posted June 11, 2012

Many retailers experience a slow part of the day which can be a difficult challenge to solve.  Sometimes the best answer is engaging your customers in new and creative ways.

South Korea’s largest retailer, E-mart, was seeing a a large dip in daily business from 12pm to 1pm and came up with a novel way to get customers into stores.  They created a shadow QR code that was only scannable between 12pm and 1pm when the sun was in a position to cast the correct shape shadow.  When people would see these shadow QR codes outdoors they could use their smartphone to read them.  Once scanned, they are lead to a ‘Sunny Sale’ homepage with special offers, coupons and a download for the Emart ecommerce app.  This simple yet clever campaign helped increase Emart’s sale by 25% during their once difficult lunchtime slump. The campaign was conceived and managed by Cheil Worldwide who were also responsible for the virtual grocery store in Hangangjin subway station in Seoul.

Barcode Scanning on Google Product Search

Posted May 18, 2009

scan-barcode[1]Great Barcode Scanning applications are already on the Android Market – nod to ShopSavvy – but Google has just added that function to their own stable of services within Google Product Search. A post published on the Official Google Mobile Blog highlights the addition.

Google Shopping suffers from the same issues as apps like ShopSavvy – it usually only works with certain types of products and Google acknowledges this:

Today, barcode scanning works best for products like electronics, books, movies or video games, but we’re working on adding more barcodes for other items. Of course, if your scan does not return a result, you can always type in the product name just as before.

This is pretty awesome if you ask me and an obvious next step for Google. Although I feel kind of bad for ShopSavvy who seem to be getting cornered out of the market, everything is free game and I’m sure that ShopSavvy will have its fair share of users stick around.

It is interesting to note that Jeffrey Sharkey, an Android Developer Challenge 1 Winner, was the developer behind a barcode scanning/shopping application called Compare Everywhere and he is now a Google employee working on the Google Android Team. However, he didn’t know about this new feature until I told him! Jeffrey informed me that he has been extremely busy with other fun stuff like widgets, for example.

Be warned, this is only available in the US and UK on Android Phones.

Barcoding Billboards to Save Homeless Critters

Posted April 23, 2009

Toronto-based Reasonpartners.org has integrated photo-enabled barcode technology into its wildlife protection OOH campaign. The eye-catching billboards featuring wild animals marooned in city settings were launched two weeks ago around Toronto.

One of the billboards in the campaign features Microsoft’s Tag High Capacity Colour Barcode (HCCB) technology, which gives smartphone users direct access to the organization’s website by snapping a picture of the barcode on the billboard, which is located at Eglinton Avenue and Markham Road in Toronto.

Reasonpartners.org is a philanthropic enterprise of Toronto agency Holmes & Lee that helps nonprofits raise money in a cost-effective manner, so more funds go directly to the causes. The general website links users to six different charities and non-profits pertaining to wildlife, giving a platform for concerned individuals to start informing themselves on the issue.

“We aggregate for different charities that happen to operate in the same space, in this case it is wildlife protection,” Peter Holmes, president of Holmes & Lee, tells MiC.
