PLANO, Texas -- StoreNext Retail Technologies LLC, a technology solution provider for independent grocers, yesterday formed a partnership with mCosm LLC to offer a suite of self-service applications and in-store advertising and promotional content to its retail customers.
Under the agreement, two new mCosm products -- the Fanless Touch&Go Paige and the Touch&Go Messenger self-service kiosks -- will be offered with StoreNext's Connected Services Internet-based applications to create a centralized kiosk management system.
mCosm is a provider of digital, interactive units designed to simplify the complexity and reduce the cost of content, devices, applications, and media management, creating opportunities for incremental revenue from advertising, promotional, and sponsorship content. The offer includes consulting and implementation services to customize the applications with a common look and feel to provide a cohesive consumer experience.
"This agreement with mCosm provides independent grocers with a dynamic, interactive technology that not only enhances the shoppers' experience, giving them more flexibility and information, but also offers retailers a suite of high-impact self-service applications delivering targeted content for in-store promotions and localized store information," said Ray Carlin, president and c.e.o. of StoreNext.
Designed for mounting on a store shelf end-cap or on an in-line store shelf, the Touch&Go Paige Computer allows shoppers to look-up prices and store locations of available products, match wine with food and access new promotions.
The Touch&Go Messenger is a portrait- or landscape-mounted, computer with a LCD/Touch screen, ranging in size from a 32-in. to a 45-in. unit. These interactive systems allow retailers to feature in-store promotions, announce upcoming events, and relay detailed information to customers.
StoreNext's Connected Services gives retailers online access to data center applications and provides up-to-date content delivery and remote monitoring of the digital units.
