EuroShop 2014: retail wears PRESTIGEglass

Google Glass with PRESTIGEglass-solution

PRESTIGE creates product transparency with a retail solution for Google Glass

Weinheim, 11 February 2014 +++ At EuroShop 2014, the world's biggest and most important trade fair for retail, Online Software AG is presenting a solution for Google Glass. The PRESTIGEglass application allows the customer to visualise product information such as allergens and ingredients by viewing the product. Using the PRESTIGEglass app, Google Glass records the viewed product and then show which allergens are contained in this product. The application supports the trend towards more conscious purchasing behaviour and also tackles the challenges of the Food Information Regulation (FIR), which comes into force in December 2014. This regulation contains certain significantly stricter labelling specifications than the previous regulation, including the mandatory provision of information on allergens.

However, offers can also be particularly emphasised with PRESTIGEglass and cross selling purchases initiated with product recommendations. With the attention-grabbing Google glass, one has the internet, a camera, a mobile phone and a large number of special apps such as PRESTIGEglass in view at all times. The Google Glass and PRESTIGEglass are operated with special linguistic commands – a natural type of function selection.

"Imagine you enter the supermarket at the corner and confirm with a wink that you are interested in the current offers - but only the lactose-free products. And then, while you are looking between the aisles for ideas for your tea, all the lactose-free goods that are on offer light up red," explains Jürgen Berens von Rautenfeld, CEO of Online Software AG, enthusiastically. "That sounds like pie in the sky, but with our PRESTIGEglass development we are taking a large step in precisely this direction."

From a retailer's perspective, the system is conceivably simple. After all, it is based on the proven template system of the PRESTIGEenterprise software. It can regulate, update and if necessary change all the content itself.

With PRESTIGEglass, a further step has been taken towards a multimedia cross-channel retail world that offers many opportunities for clever shopping solutions orientated towards the customers of tomorrow. Experience the future of retail with us and Google Glass.
