TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 4, 2014) - Dx3, Canada's largest digital marketing, advertising and retail event, is excited to announce The Mobile Innovation Store -- a mobile-enabled, personalized concept store on the Dx3 show floor, featuring leading vintage luxury retailer LXR & Co.
In partnership with mobile retail app platform Thirdshelf, beacon-maker Estimote, and mobile strategy firm Mobilogie, The Mobile Innovation Store will demonstrate the power of personalized shopping to increase customer loyalty, improve in-store conversion and increase brand affinity for small- and medium-size retailers.
Visitors to The Mobile Innovation Store on the Dx3 show floor will receive an iPhone preloaded with the Thirdshelf powered LXR & Co. mobile app and a shopper persona that will define a custom experience in-store.
Stocked with handbags and other luxury merchandise from LXR & Co., The Mobile Innovation Store is a dynamic retail environment that adapts to the profiles and preferences of its customers. Product displays and in-store tablets react to a customer's presence, presenting personalized recommendations, and enabling features such as wish lists and social sharing.
"We teamed up with LXR & Co. to showcase how a small to mid-sized retailer can leapfrog much larger competitors with deeper pockets by using innovative technology," says Antoine Azar, co-founder of Thirdshelf. "Mobile technology allows for a revolution of the shopping experience, and enables a true omnichannel strategy."
Using iBeacon and Thirdshelf technology, LXR & Co.'s mobile app is able to make relevant in-store recommendations, scan products, interact with store associates' devices, push geolocated discounts and offers, and incorporates a next-generation mobile loyalty program.
"We want to offer our clients exceptional service at all times, and we are constantly pushing the envelope to exceed their expectations," says Fred Manella Founder & CEO of LXR & Co. "We've managed to stand out by making luxury fun and fresh; this Innovation Store is a real-world example of how we use technology in a transparent way to create a truly magical shopping experience."
