Microsoft Dynamics and Windows Embedded partnered at the recent Euroshop retail expo in Düsseldorf, Germany, to showcase an end-to-end retail scenario for outdoor clothing and footwear provider Jack Wolfskin, which included mobile and traditional point of service.
The Windows Embedded booth featured four ‘zones’ – Home, Back office, Store and Storage – each of which brought to life the possibilities of Microsoft and its partner network. The Jack Wolfskin scenario was located in the Store zone.
Based on Microsoft Dynamics AX, the Windows Embedded team built a fully populated enterprise resource planning system which connected with an online shop, as well as a small ‘brick and mortar’ store and storage.
Windows Embedded-based devices were used at the edge of the network, allowing visitors to experience real-world scenarios with support from staff.
“Mobile devices were a hot topic with our customers,” said Werner Reuss, director, Business Group, Windows Embedded Germany and CEE. “We had the opportunity to showcase seven different form factors with different features and functionalities at our booth, ranging from HP’s ElitePad 900 to the Bluebird BM180. We saw high interest and had a lot of discussion here.”
The Windows Embedded portfolio at the booth also featured digital signage, security and surveillance and point of service solutions.
