Bring Online Shopping Inside the Store


Big-box and warehouse retailers provide consumers with an extremely wide choice of products—too numerous to have on the showroom floor. It is a challenge to display every available product in thousands of stores without incurring significant inventory risk.


Overcoming this limitation, large-format, interactive visual displays are the next best thing to having an item in front of you. They bring products to life with full-size images on multiple interactive high-definition displays, allowing you to look inside an appliance like a refrigerator. Customers see the store’s entire product portfolio, enabling them to make informed product comparisons.


  • Extend the product range
  • Reduce in-store inventory
  • Facilitate purchase decision making
