VANCOUVER, BC – May 10, 2013 – iQmetrix is pleased to announce the general availability of its XQ Browse for iPad app via the Apple App Store.
XQ Browse for iPad is a tablet version of XQ Browse, which typically functions on large mounted touchscreens within a retail store. Key advantages to XQ Browse for iPad are its portable form factor and ease of deployment in-store, as the Browse-equipped iPads can also be mounted on store counters and displays.
“This is a significant milestone for XQ as tablets play a key role in the in-store experience,” says iQmetrix President and CEO Christopher Krywulak. “Browse for iPad offers our clients a cost effective and flexible means of introducing XQ Interactive Retail technology into their stores.”
XQ Browse for iPad brings the familiarity of shopping via tablet into the physical store. It offers an attractive self-service option to customers when a store associate is unable to assist them right away. For the retailer, Browse for iPad frees up shelf space, because it easily displays a store’s complete inventory. It also assists salespeople in guiding customers through the browsing process -- either on stationary mounted iPads or anywhere in store, carrying the iPad around with them. Tablet solutions are helpful to B2B sales reps as well; they can display the entire product and service lineup while making sales presentations on the go.
“Browse for iPad engages our customers with information to make better decisions and empowers our staff to speak about the products more confidently,” says Dean Leja, VP of Cellular and More, a Michigan-based Verizon Premium Retailer.
