We now have another Hybris Labs prototype running entirely on YaaS – The Changing Room.
After Bullseye and Infinite Cart this is now the third of our prototypes we have integrated with YaaS. Again, the biggest benefit lies in the flexibility to configure the demo to specific needs. “Product content management with YaaS Builder” we call it. In less fancy words: we can easily exchange the products.
There is of course a bit more to it than that. At the end, one of our main goals is to demonstrate the possibilities of combining innovative ideas with SAP Hybris software. It also allowed us to add some new features:
- Customer loyalty card detection on customer opt-in
- Transfer of products currently in changing room to customers shopping cart on mobile device via QR code
This nicely rounds off the Changing Room story. If we wanted to, we now could speak of a ‘customer journey’…
After the Smart Wine Shelf in Mexico and Infinite Cart in Japan, we now had the Changing Room in the Middle East. In Dubai, a city well known for luxury shopping and modern architecture, it was Lukas Kerschbaum, Director of Presales at SAP Hybris who had the pleasure of conducting the demo. Here’s what Lukas had to say:
“This year at GITEX it’s all about LIVE – construction, events, boardroom and of course LIVE Retail. What else is there to demonstrate this better than our very own Hybris Labs Changing Room. Together with other smart innovations that make people’s lives easier, we showcased our concept of an interactive shopping or dressing experience to the visitors at GITEX. Many big retailers love the idea of connecting a digital experience with a store visit. To attract even more attention we will move the Changing Room to the newly created Customer Experience Center in the new Dubai office after GITEX.”
That’s the reaction to the Hybris Labs Changing Room at the 4th Annual Customer Experience Management Summit, currently being held in Singapore – “a big hit!”. The internal reaction… but the general feedback can’t be far off, because the setup looks pretty cool.
The local team did a great job putting the demo together with some remote support from us. Nice one!
Well, let’s say almost… Okay, not actual Danish design by definition… But this version of the Hybris Labs Changing Room was built in Denmark, set up at the SAP Innovation Forum in Copenhagen (Denmark) by our Danish colleagues who also conducted the demo…in Danish! So there!
The reason we’re emphasizing this, is not our love for functionalist design and architecture. Far more it is the fact that once again a team has successfully demoed one of our prototypes at an event without a Hybris Labs member being physically present. Well done! This makes us very happy because, as our loyal readers know, we can’t possibly attend all of the events we’re requested for. But we’ll always do our best to support where we can!
Actually, you can find elements of Danish design in the setup…
Does the hybris labs Changing Room still appear to magic in your eyes? Then take a look behind the scenes. Although a good magician never reveals his secrets, we like to show how simple innovation can be!
