The future of retailing: State Minister Ilse Aigner impressed with innovative IT solutions for tomorrow’s retail sector

At CeBIT, Bavarian State Minister of the Economy Ilse Aigner met the intelligent shopping consultant developed by implexis GmbH

Ilse Aigner, Bavarian State Minister of the Economy and Media, Energy and Technology, visited the implexis Informationsmanagement GmbH stand during her official tour of the CeBIT trade fair. The Nuremberg-based IT experts at implexis, a Microsoft Gold Partner, presented innovative IT solutions for tomorrow’s retail sector. implexis Managing Director Michael Ferschl introduced Minister Aigner to the company’s digital shopping consultant, an intelligent ERP solution that enables customers to select the right products in stores. In a live scenario staged in a replica of one of retailer Jack Wolfskin’s stores, Aigner experienced how textile sensors analyze data in real time to find the perfect outdoor shoe based on the customer’s movement. With the results of this analysis, customers can select the optimal shoe interactively using Microsoft’s Kinect technology and have additional product information displayed. The intelligent ERP solution captivated technology aficionado Aigner, not least because it offers the retail sector a whole range of new opportunities. Aigner also was impressed by implexis‘ rate of growth: Following its branches in Nuremberg, Munich, Stuttgart and Braunschweig, the company recently inaugurated a site in Ansbach. Since mid-2014, implexis has expanded its team by 60 to its current total of 160 staff members. implexis‘ business segments also were a topic of interest to Aigner. Keywords such as omni-channel retailing, collaboration and Business Intelligence describe the organization’s spectrum of activities. In these segments, implexis supports medium-sized and large companies by offering a broad range of software solutions for digitalizing business, and innovation and logistics processes to help its customers achieve profitable growth. All solutions are based on Microsoft Dynamics AX, Microsoft Dynamics NAV or SharePoint and .Net technologies in combination with Microsoft Server infrastructures. Linking online and offline environments is one of implexis’ key areas of expertise.
