AMAZON DELIVERY ROBOTS ARE OFFICIALLY ON THE STREETS OF CALIFORNIA | ZDNeT Gary’s Take: Amazon is taking robots to the street as it rolls out a test of last-mile delivery robots in Southern California. Amazon is joining other companies like Starship Technologies and Refraction AI in using automated robots to do home delivery of products. Amazon’s entry into this space will do nothing but speed the transformation of delivery. Supermarkets are an ideal launching point for robotic delivery as the stores are already in the neighborhood and near to shoppers. Watch for this space to begin moving fast. ALEXA, TIME FOR CLASS: HOW ONE UNIVERSITY PUT AN ECHO DOT IN EVERY DORM ROOM | CNET Gary’s Take: Amazon being Amazon is pushing hard in many directions simultaneously as shown by its aggressive deployment of Alexa in a fast growing number of sectors. Already well established in homes, Alexa is moving into cars, the workplace, apartment buildings, libraries, hospitals, and now university dorm rooms.  Amazon’s goal is to make Alexa ubiquitous - the idea being that you are surrounded by ‘Alexa’ throughout your day wherever you are and wherever you go. Voice is on its way to becoming the next primary user interface replacing keyboards. Are you ready? CASHIERLESS STORES MAKE INROADS IN U.S. | Wall Street Journal Gary’s Take: Amazon Go-like technology is beginning to spread fast as Amazon opens new Go stores, Sam’s Club and Giant Eagle test AI driven frictionless shopping and more retailers are entering the space. The technology is potentially game-changing, eliminating a major labor cost and creating a very new shopping experience. According to the article, an estimated 100 retailers around the globe are said to be testing or piloting the technology. AMAZON GETS SERIOUS ABOUT BEING YOUR PERSONAL STYLIST | FORBES Sterling’s Take: The key to Amazon is their relentless pursuit of change. This is probably a good move for Amazon, but it’s not an end game. I’m sure they’re going to continue to evaluate their progress into fashion and continue to iterate. One move isn’t likely to make a dramatic difference. However, continuous evaluations/adjustments over time do. WILL THE NEXT BIG THING SINCE STARBUCKS BE RUN BY ROBOTS | RetailWire Sterling’s Take: I don’t think there’s any question that robotics will play a more prominent role in coffee and foodservice in the future. But that doesn’t mean humans aren’t ever involved – it starts to free people up to focus on things that humans are just better at: customer interaction, developing the experiences around the robots, etc. The unrelenting march of technology will continue on. It’s up to us to make sure we’re using them to improve human experiences, not just replace them.

AMAZON’S PROFIT MORE THAN DOUBLES ON 17% RISE IN SALES | Wall Street Journal Gary’s Take: Some readers will remember in the 1980s when then President Reagan harnessed the powerful US economy to burgeoning military innovation, triggering an arms race that eventually bankrupted the Soviet Union and ended the Cold War. This strategy became known as the Reagan Doctrine. Well today we have the Amazon Doctrine. Jeff Bezos has linked his company’s massive financial resources to tech innovation in a bid to completely disrupt many sectors of retail. Amazon’s just released record profits, linked with investing in speeding delivery to 1 day for Prime members, is the Amazon Doctrine in action. While other companies have tried to base strategy on tech what is different now is the point in time we are at: We are at the inflection point on the exponential growth curve of technology and Amazon is opening up a growing gap with competitors. Speeding up delivery is a ‘prime’ example. WILL SHOPPABLE ADS HELP WALMART’S VUDU COMPETE WITH AMAZON AND NETFLIX | Retail Wire Sterling’s Take: Free content will most always be a draw to some degree. And if the shoppable content is easy to use and meaningful to users, it will only add to it. Sounds like many brands have already bought in … but Walmart has some catching up to do with regards to original programming. Amazon and Netflix are so far ahead in creating really great (sometimes viral) content — it remains to be seen if Walmart can carve out a viable niche with “basic-cable” content. AI-POWERED, VOICE-CAPABLE CHATBOT HELPS SHOPPERS MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE IN STORES | RetailWire Sterling’s Take: To me it’s a question of where they can add meaningful value, and I think BevMo! has found a use case here with SmartAisle. It’s something that (especially at this stage) isn’t appropriate for all retail verticals or chains, but I can definitely see them complementing more sales associates in the not too distant future. WHAT’S REALLY DRIVING DISRUPTION? (HINT: IT’S NOT TECHNOLOGY) | RetailWire Sterling’s Take: 100% — innovation + disruption has very little to do with technology and everything to do with our thinking (decoupling or otherwise). It’s why Steve Jobs could take an invention from Xerox 20 years prior and create the personal computer industry. Or why RC vehicles were my favorite as a kid, but today we call them drones and they’re doing everything from delivery to military duty. Technology is the enabler and sometimes the result — not the disruptor in and of themselves. The biggest thing missing amongst retailers and brands today is an innovation culture, a group of people that can cultivate new ideas and perspectives beyond the status quo — and execute on them. Labs, innovation groups, etc. can help, but they tend to be siloed. What we can do is bring that kind of “startup” thinking, self starting and exponential aims into the entire organization. Is it confronting? Maybe … Does it work? Definitely. KOHL’S GOES ALL IN ON AMAZON RETURNS | RetailWire Sterling’s Take: My mom used to have a saying for this — “it’s cheaper to milk a cow than buy one.” That is, if everything Amazon is looking for from Kohl’s comes at a low cost, why do they need to move forward with anything else? I’m sure Kohl’s is keeping their fingers crossed for a deeper relationship, but Amazon will only drive from the data, numbers and performance that makes sense.

WALKING THROUGH THE ‘STORE OF THE FUTURE’ | Winsight Grocery Business Gary’s Take: The ‘Store of the Future’ article showcases just how fast retail is evolving, driven by the exponential growth of computer processing power which, in turn, drives growing use of AI. Few people, retail execs included, truly appreciate how fast technology is moving and the implications of that for the future. Mixed reality capabilities are coming on fast that will truly meld the physical and digital worlds of shopping and enable retailers to deliver exciting new services, information, and experiences. The big 'but’ here is that retailers need to figure out how to move faster to keep pace with innovation! BIG BROTHER AT THE MALL | Wall Street Journal Gary’s Take: The opportunity to collect shopper data within the physical store is exploding as facial recognition, mobile tracking, and other capabilities flood into the market. Government is taking notice with Congress considering getting involved because of data confidentiality and privacy issues. This topic came up last week when I guest lectured at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business. Our discussion focused on the fact that technology is moving far too fast for 'reactive’ government regulation to be effective and the fact that many politicians and people in government are not up to speed on technology - as was all too evident in the Facebook and other tech hearings Congress held this past year. The retail industry needs to be cognizant of these issues and work to build protections around data and create a compelling value proposition for shoppers to participate and share their data. WHY GROCERS WEBSITES ARE CRITICALLY IMPORTANT | Store Brands Gary’s Take: Great call-out from RFG’s study that retailers need to focus on customer digital engagement. Retailers largely don’t understand how fast things are moving and the need for the personalization and relevancy made possible through digital engagement. WILL WALMART’S KIDSBOX HELP KIDS LOOK GOOD AND DO GOOD AT THE SAME TIME | RetailWire  Sterling’s Take: It’s a great chance for all parties to learn — Walmart learns about a kids subscription model and KIDBOX opens their offering to a new audience. If all goes well, it wouldn’t surprise me to see Walmart take the next step and invest or buy them. It’d only be natural to look at extensions into other demographics from there. WILL LIVESTREAM SHOPPING TAKE OFF IN THE U.S.? | RetailWire Sterling’s Take: I’m already seeing pockets of livestream sales from influencers in the US. And it’s definitely growing. Only the biggest and/or most focused retailers will have opportunity to build their own platforms. Others will have to take advantage of the existing platforms and associated costs. It’s just like any of these other new channels and new technologies — even if it’s a bit early, it pays to test, trial and learn. Keeping one foot in current operations and the other in what’s newly possible keeps any organization viable over the long term.

4 Ways Augmented Reality Is Redefining the Shopping Experience

Alexa Marino, Content Manager, Glance Creative

The importance of augmented reality in retail can’t be overestimated. Surveys indicate 74% of consumers now expect retailers to offer some form of AR experience. That may mean brands have to work with an Android or iPhone app development agency to build a successful program or to integrate AR capabilities into an existing app. Clearly, though, this innovation is no longer just for gaming apps. Brands are more likely to offer the kinds of experiences customers want when they understand how to leverage AR to its full potential. The following examples illustrate some of the more effective ways retailers can take advantage of this new tool. Letting Customers Test Products Ecommerce hasn’t completely replaced brick-and-mortar shopping just yet. There are many reasons for this. A major one, though, is the simple fact that customers need to try or see certain products in person before buying them. Shopping online doesn’t offer that opportunity. Or, at least, that used to be the case. It may not hold true for much longer. For example, Ikea’s AR app lets users see how a piece of furniture would actually look in their home. Sephora’s lets users apply virtual makeup to a selfie. Home Depot’s AR app allows users to see how certain paint colors might impact a room. Features such as these essentially give online shoppers a clearer idea of whether a product is worth buying. Boosting In-Store Sales AR doesn’t merely improve the ecommerce experience. It can also be very useful in brick-and-mortar settings.  For instance, shoppers often research products via their mobile phones while in stores. They also track down sales associates when they have questions. Both options can be relatively tedious and time consuming. They don’t have to be. With AR, users can simply hold their phones up to the products they want to learn more about. The AR feature will display important information such as customer reviews, pricing, and more.  Improving Fitting Room Efficiency Trying on various garments in a fitting room can take a lot of time. This often discourages customers from making purchases.  That’s why some retailers have used AR to offer virtual fitting rooms. Instead of requiring customers to actually try on garments, mirrors in these rooms superimpose images of garments onto a shopper’s body. This development is particularly helpful during busy shopping seasons. Boosting Brand Awareness AR allows retailers to provide customers with unique experiences that help to build brand awareness. For example, when Airwalk re-released one of its popular shoes for a limited time, customers who wanted to purchase it had to first download Airwalk’s app and travel to certain designated locations. The brand set up AR “pop-up shops” at key locations, using geolocation to ensure customers who wanted to purchase the shoe were nearby. The campaign drove more business to Airwalk’s ecommerce shop than ever before. Clearly, AR can dramatically improve retail experiences in a variety of ways. It’s also evident that customers want retailers to use this technology. Those who do so sooner rather than later will stand out among the competition. +MORE

Atomo solves the problem of collecting data on customer interaction with a brick and mortar retail store. Every day 3.4 million people go to work to sell billions of products across a 2.3 trillion dollar industry. Each product has a story. The key to selling that product is telling the right story at the right time to the right customer. Amazon figured out two decades ago the key to telling the right story is gathering data, iterating, improving with each shopper. With 3.4 million sales staff brands, distributors, and stores have no way to gather that data. No way to iterate and improve their story, no way to learn what works and what doesn’t. The brick and mortar store is treated like a black box with only binary data, a product sold or it didn’t. Atomo solves this problem. Pulling back the curtain on the black box. For the first time stories, distributors, and brands can look at what stories converted and what didn’t, what caught attention but didn’t sell, what is the missing link. No process can be optimized if it is not first measured. Atomo allows the in-person sales experience to be measured. +MORE
