“Retail Has Finally Arrived…Or Has It?”

Andy Rosic spoke at NewTech PDX in June

I was one of five presenters at Portland’s NewTech meetup in June. The event showcases founders, startups, and established companies sharing their viewpoint, their technology, and their vision of our future. It was an energizing time meeting smart and talented locals, and having the chance to hear about the many cool things being built right here!

I spoke about a small, test project that we did as a team to sample voice-based technology (think Google Home, or similar), and how it could turn a very static sales transaction into a dynamic interaction. One that puts the customer at the forefront, and does less assuming and more asking. Retail has a long way to go. But, hopefully, we’re doing our part to get it there bit by bit.
