said Art Miler, Vice President of Marketing for Vector Security. "Our goal is to

The column kicks off today with an article from Michael T. Grady, Vector
Security Executive Vice President and 30-year industry veteran, with his
insights on the Real World Smart Store.
He says shopping experiences where mirrors double as touchscreens, where
customers can pay for merchandise without ever having to stand in line, and
where data from devices can support operational change and employee performance
are happening now.
"This isn't something predicted to happen far into the future," he writes. "It's
happening right here, right now...and it's being driven by consumers looking for
a consistent online and in-store experience-a true omnichannel experience."
The article continues on to outline the customer and retailer benefits of
building a Smart Store, as well as what it takes to build a network strong and
secure enough to support the customer-defined applications needed.
"We're thrilled to be partnered with Vector Intelligent Solutions and help steer
this educational journey that all of us in retail are involved in," said Gus
Downing, Publisher & Editor for the D&D Daily. "With the rapid pace of
change and evolution, we view this new column as an opportunity to add value and
provide the retailers, our readers, with the information they need to better
navigate this Omni world. As the LP and IT communities continue on this merging
path and with Vector Intelligent Solutions offerings, we see this partnership as

to be successful."
