PLANO, TX - J. C. Penney Company, Inc. has announced that they are expanding their Findmore Interactive Smart displays to more than 120 additional stores across the United States. Additionally, in conjunction with the launch of JCPenney's Modern Bride concept, the Company will begin rolling out the findmore experience using iPad to 50 fine jewelry departments.
These new initiatives are part of JCPenney's overall findmore strategy which encourages store associates and customers—whether using the fixture, iPad, jcp.com enabled point-of-sale register or in-store marketing pieces—to "find more" by providing access to the expanded assortments and product information available on jcp.com. Having access to jcp.com in the store ensures that customers find what they are looking for when they visit a JCPenney store and also serves as an associate selling and education tool, allowing store associates to deliver exceptional customer service.
"We've always seen the value of integrating the online and in-store shopping experience offering customers the opportunity to have access to a greater merchandise selection by offering access to online purchases in the stores," said Tom Nealon, group executive vice president of JCPenney. "Offering an in-store digital experience that drives additional sales is a true differentiator for JCPenney, and continues to build on our leadership in the digital space as we merge our online and in-store shopping experiences.
JCPenny Expands Findmore Interactive Smart Displays to More Than 120 Additional StoresWith the findmore fixture, JCPenney is able to take its digital platform directly into the store. More than just a kiosk linking store users to jcp.com's 250,000 online products, the 42-inch touchscreen findmore smart fixture provides a unique, interactive digital experience that naturally fits into the store. Serving as an anchor for the merchandise department, the fixture elevates the in-store shopping experience, allowing users to:
• View jcp.com's vast assortment of merchandise and "find more" sizes, colors, styles and items not available — or out of stock — in the store.
• Experience the power of jcp.com in-store, with strong, interactive, media-rich editorial content, such as jcp.com's Little Red Book experience, which highlights key seasonal women's trends.
• Check the availability of merchandise in-store or nearby stores.
• E-mail images and information about an online item to themselves or a friend.
• Use 360 degree views and zoom features to see all details of a product.
• Scan the barcode of an in-store item to learn more about the product's features, additional colors and sizes available, and even washing instructions. The findmore fixture will also provide product recommendations for complementary items (ex. A customer scans a pair of pants and the findmore fixture will suggest tops and accessories to go with it).
• View items and outfits and add them to an online "dressing room." The customer can then print out a page listing the items, locate the items in the store and try them on.
• Purchase online items from the findmore fixture and have them shipped to their home. Items can also be shipped for free to the local JCPenney store. Additionally, customers can also print out a receipt and purchase an online item at an in-store register, with the rest of their in-store purchases.
JCPenny's Findmore Experience Launched On iPad:
JCPenney is also bringing its findmore strategy to the Fine Jewelry department with a smaller, hand held concept using the revolutionary iPad. Fine Jewelry associates will be able to use iPad to showcase JCPenney's full offering of bridal fine jewelry collections for customers — highlighting a variety of styles, cuts, sizes and metal options — all available under the Company's new Modern Bride concept. Incorporating features from the Modern Bride™ experience on jcp.com, the iPad app will include a notebook feature that allows users to add rings to a virtual notebook, where they can compare ring features side by side.
JCPenney's findmore experiences are part of its overall investment in its digital platform, which also includes jcp.com, as well as its social and mobile initiatives. The Company's commitment to technology innovation continues to deliver new opportunities to connect with its customers.

New uPad kiosk design to be shown in New York at CET World by Olea Kiosks of California. They've named ii the PadLock to gen spin on security angle. Olea is the second kiosk manufacturer to come out with specific iPad design. Nothing on the website and no pictures so in that sense still a virtual product. Other company is supposed to begin production next week?
Los Angeles-based Olea Kiosks Inc. announced it will unveil the Padlock, its latest enclosure to join its lineup of standard offerings, at the Olea booth during the upcoming Customer Engagement Technology World (CETW) tradeshow this Nov. 10 – 11 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City.
The PadLock introduces retailers, hotels, restaurants and other businesses to a new potential use for the Apple iPad device, the company says. Many companies have already taken advantage of the iPad's business opportunities with applications like virtual catalogs and customer surveys. The PadLock affords businesses the ability to install the iPad in a public forum without the fear of theft and with the security of a tamper-resistant design. The added benefit of the PadLock, Olea says, is its design continuity with the iPad, which makes it recognizable to patrons.
The PadLock is constructed from sheet metal and aluminum, making it the most robust iPad enclosure on the market, according to Olea. The aluminum is CNC milled for accuracy and ensures a precise fit. The power and communication cable is routed through the body to prevent tampering, and the enclosure has extra security features like proprietary hardware with special tools, as well as tamper-resistant access points to the home and power buttons.
If you are a frequent user of Asian carriers, traveling will be simpler and more convenient with the presence of new ticketing iPad kiosks. One of the major airlines in Malaysia, Malaysia Airlines (MAS) has released the iPad booths in order to attract more customers and to boost revenue.
Developed together with an airline IT supplier, SITA Lab, MAS recently launched MHkiosk iPad. The interactive application allows travelers to access a range of ticketing services via the revolutionary Apple iPad. SITA’s interface of MHmobile, a convenient MAS booking application for smart phones, has been adjusted for MHkiosk to run on iPad devices.
With a 7.9-inch wide touch screen, you can easily book a flight, choose your preferred seat, check flight arrival and departure schedules, find the status of your missing baggage, find out your flight status and enjoy a variety of exclusive offers provided by MHkiosk. Also, the kiosks provide both printed and electronic boarding passes and are equipped with passport and card readers.
The MHkiosk system uses direct payment by credit card and confirmation of purchase is sent via SMS and E-mail. In line with the motto “Simpler, Faster, and Greener,” the airline’s official MHkiosk website claims that paperless itineraries and no administrative fees will be good for the earth and for travelers’ pockets.
However, other aviation IT observers have shown some concern over the kiosks’ implementations, including the mini-size of the screen, and the safety of the device when run by children or people unfamiliar with the application.
Despite the anxiety, there is still huge interest in the kiosks’ launch.
Malaysia Airlines claimed to be the world's first airline to offer self-service iPad ticket kiosks in a new six-month trial. Earlier in June, an Australian airline Jetstar Airways also released plans to integrate the iPad with its in-flight entertainment system.
iPad kiosk design enclosure announced by Beyond Kiosks. Smart move on their part.
Since the iPad launched this April, we’ve seen several innovative ways companies have put the new device to use. A portable media tablet is a great Point of Sale (POS) tool and enterprises like Mercedes and Malaysia Airlines have already used the iPad as a sales tool.
Looking to capitalize on enterprise interest in the iPad, Beyond Kiosks just announced a kiosk enclosure specifically designed for the iPad. The enclosure has several key design features which caters to the iPad’s unique set of capabilities. The enclosure is designed to allow RF signals (WiFi, 3G cellular and Bluetooth) to pass through without interference and all buttons and jacks are hidden so users are unable to alter settings or exit running applications.
The enclosure uses a standard 100mm VESA mount so companies can easily attach the enclosure to existing kiosk systems or choose from a variety of free-standing, wall or countertop units available from Beyond Kiosks.
The enclosures will go on sale in Q3, 2010. Pricing has not yet been announced.
