Retail and hospitality

From the Summer 2015 issue of OnWindows magazine

OnWindows Retail and Hospitality Sector

Introduction: Tracy Issel, General Manager, Worldwide Retail, Microsoft

Mobile technologies are having a big impact on the retail store experience, but they’re also revolutionising the hospitality experience too – think tablets replacing in-room paper compendiums, customers checking in via their mobile phones and so on. In this issue, we report on the latest developments in the hotel sector in our special feature with Greg Jones on page 140.

In our lead story, you can also hear from LiveTiles about how it is helping retailers to build intuitive user interfaces that offer employees the same technological experience they enjoy at home.
