For Retailers

1. Preload images of varying discount barcodes created with your existing (POS) system to offer consumers a surprise checkout discount every time they shop, changed on the fly with one click of the mouse.

This eliminates the typical implications of deploying dynamically changing discounts with Point-of-Sale (POS) systems, which can be time-consuming and complex to execute. Moreover, this allows retailers to easily offer consumers a checkout discount value that is changed on the fly in real-time within seconds. In turn, tailor savings at any given time to meet store demographics (e.g. offer higher discounts during slower periods).

2. Embed external web pages such as the retailer’s digital weekly ad flyer, with one click of the mouse.

This eliminates the need to direct consumers to a retailer's website, which may not be user-friendly, offer too much content, and/or require too many mouse clicks to access information. Moreover, this empowers retailers to directly market individual web pages to consumers, changed on the fly.

3. Create real-time flash, daily deal, and clearance sales with the ability to set start & end dates to restrict public visibility.

This eliminates generic sales and empowers a retail store to create dynamic special offers with clicks of the mouse, increasing sales and reducing losses from sitting inventory. Consumers simply bookmark the store’s AskMIA™ web page URL or add a shortcut to their mobile device’s home screen to repeatedly access updated content in real-time, specific for the retail store.

4. Drag and drop interface to group, hide, edit, delete, and rearrange product images.

This eliminates the time-consuming process of preparing sales items in advance for print or digital advertising. Moreover, it allows a retail store to promote and revise sale items in real-time (e.g. sold out) with clicks of the mouse for efficiency. Furthermore, it can shorten the sales cycle of inventory (e.g. perishables, open box, clearance or excess stock) to increase sales.

5. Information submitted by consumer is emailed to preset recipients, which includes links to images of product barcodes and any other media provided.

This eliminates the need to manually forward consumer information to required store personnel. Moreover, this valuable feature enables franchisors to easily acquire the challenges of PRE-SALE data per retail store in real-time, to better serve and accommodate customer purchasing needs for each location.

6. Click links to download product barcode images submitted by consumer to computer, then scan image using barcode scanner to input data into (POS) system.

This eliminates the complexities of data integration, as the information pertaining to each product barcode submitted by the consumer is already within the retailer’s (POS) system. Thus, retailers have instant access to product information and can immediately respond to the consumer while they are STILL IN STORE (i.e. send product discount code).

7. Download consumer emails, for email marketing.

This eliminates the typical challenges that marketers face associated with growing their email lists, such as expertise and producing relevant content in exchange for a consumer's permission to receive emails. Moreover, this effortless strategy will grow your OPT-IN email marketing lists from in-store shoppers.
