Cincinnati, OH, March 12, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Ascendum Solutions, a leading global information technology development company, will be demonstrating the capabilities of their proprietary state-of-the-art retail technology platform, called ROADS™ (Real-time Offer and Analytics Deployment System), at the Retail Business Technology Expo, 11 and 12 March, 2014, in London, UK. “RBTE is the perfect platform for us to showcase our innovation, agility, and expertise in developing solutions that drive high multiples for our clients,” said Vora Group Chairman Mahendra Vora.

“This event coincides with the expansion of Ascendum in Europe,” said Kris Nair, President of Ascendum Solutions. “We believe that the next generation of growth in retail will be led by Europe.

Interactive digital signage, mobile apps, BLE (Bluetooth-enabled Low Energy) beacons, smart kiosks, and Ascendum’s latest innovation, an app developed specifically for Google Glass, are several ways modern retailers can leverage an Internet of Things (IoT) strategy to reach more consumers with individually targeted offers.

Demonstrations Bring ROADS to Life

Both companies have collaborated extensively to develop various retail applications which utilize the ROADS platform and the latest social-mobile technologies.

Smart Kiosks: In-store displays with BLE beacons that detect app-using consumers which send specific, targeted offers to the user’s mobile device.

ROADS™ Mobile: See up-close how ROADS™ Mobile works seamlessly with user profiles, opt-ins, loyalty programs, personalised shopping lists, product locators, and social media sharing.

Technology That Empowers Retailers and Consumers
