Retail Cloud Solution Provider Adds Influential Lineup of Industry Leaders to Provide Strategic Oversight and Growth Expertise

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwired - July 21, 2015) - Point Inside, the leading provider of digital in-store product location solutions for retailers, announced today an expansion of its retail and strategic advisory boards including experienced executives from top luxury and major retail stores. Board members will serve until June 2016, providing strategic guidance on the company's future growth, partner strategy, and in-store innovations.

"As Point Inside continues to expand the breadth and depth of its partnerships with the world's leading retailers, we are excited and honored to publicly announce our expanded advisory board," said Josh Marti, CEO and co-founder of Point Inside. "These individuals bring a wealth of experience in retail and in rapidly scaling businesses like Point Inside, and will be a valuable resource as we continue to grow and build strategic partnerships."

Point Inside's cloud-based solutions combine the physical location of products in-store with enterprise data and mobile shopper behavior. The resulting digital representation of the physical store lets retailers know exactly where all of their products are in each store, all of the time. This representation is the foundation for Point Inside's StoreMode™ platform, which enables a variety of digital solutions for retailers including as in-store mobile strategy, beacons and indoor location, merchandising analytics, and omnichannel fulfillment.

Retailers who integrate Point Inside's powerful product location solutions can effectively and contextually influence in-store sales using digital. According to Deloitte's latest study, digital is expected to influence 64 cents of every dollar spent in retail stores by the end of 2015, or $2.2 trillion total. Moreover, shoppers who use mobile in-store convert at a 20-percent higher rate compared to those who do not use mobile while shopping.
