LightSpeed and Aruba
LightSpeed and Aruba have teamed to offer wireless smartphone- and tablet-based POS solutions to iGeneration retailers. Aruba’s Mobile Device Admission Control (MDAC) enables iPads, iPod Touches, and iPhones to be shipped directly to stores, speeding POS deployment by allowing self-provisioning by general sales staff instead of IT specialists. Operating over Aruba’s PCI-compliant Wi-Fi networks, these devices reliably stay connected to the back-office LightSpeed database as users roam, allowing sales to be processed anywhere in the store. Aruba’s context-aware Mobile Virtual Enterprise (MOVE) architecture provides policy enforcement based on device-fingerprinting, application-fingerprinting, and location, ensuring a good in-store experience by prioritizing LightSpeed’s mobile POS applications over other less critical network traffic.

Nearbuy’s innovative technology enables location-based shopping, and enhances employee productivity, with a unique combination of guest Wi-Fi analytics and micro-location data. The result is increased revenue, enhanced brand awareness, and reduced operating expenses.
Using data extracted from existing Aruba wireless infrastructure, Nearbuy’s analytics deliver insights into both on-line and store-based shopping patterns. By directing shoppers to areas and items of interest to them, customers become more engaged in the shopping experience, are more likely to purchase products, and become more loyal to the store brand. Retailers own the resulting behavioral data and control who has access to them. For more information please visit www.nearbuysystems.com.
