Showplace Unveils Smart Phone Shopping App
October 8, 2010,
HIGH POINT, N.C.-Showplace, a multi-tenant showroom building, is unveiling a smart phone shopping app at the market designed to revolutionize the buyer experience.
The app, called Showplace Shopper, enables buyers to scan Quick Response codes assigned to products as they shop Showplace showrooms--capturing information about the products and images of items that interest them on their smart phones. Major exhibitors participating in the beta test of the application, which will be available for free download inside the building's lobby during the market, include American Leather, Copeland, Revco, Elements, Surya, Bramble & Co., and BKind3.
The new app supplies the building's participating exhibitors with vital information in an unprecedented way, allowing them to measure customer behavior inside their showrooms and to identify which products are most popular, or show the most promise.
"We think that this is a great step for Showplace," said Satya Tiwari, president of Surya. "The market model has changed, and the building that provides buyers with the most productive experience will undoubtedly be the most attractive building to exhibitors in the future."
