LOS ANGELES, April 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- AVT, Inc. (OTC Markets: AVTC) (www.autoretail.com), a leading manufacturer of automated retailing centers, self-service kiosks, and custom designed vending machines, announced that it will unveil its new Multi-Shopper Automated Retailing Experience at the NAMA One Show, April 13-15 in Chicago.
The Multi-Shopper is riding the wave of a new revolution in retailing, with both traditional brick and mortar as well as online stores seeking news ways to interact with customers. The Multi-Shopper has been named a "Retailing Experience" because it combines many aspects of retailing into one, easy-to-deploy, interactive system.
The Multi-Shopper can be customized to carry a wide variety of merchandise, and provides unique customer experiences through its multi-media capabilities and push-notifications to nearby shoppers.
Additionally, the Multi-Shopper creates an exciting atmosphere for interaction – with integrated touch-screens that provide a depth of product information, as well as instant access to a retailer's online inventory – allowing consumers to find complementary products in just moments.
According to the New York Times, traditional stores like The Gap and Banana Republic are struggling – with the former closing 165 stores in North America. Jeff Kirwan, Gap's global brand president told the Times that some stores were "just not appropriate anymore," and that the company is "changing the way we bring product to market."
Wayne Salvino, President of AVT, said that new technology is driving this surge toward automated retailing. "The Multi-Shopper allows consumers to enjoy the benefits of traditional and online shopping, in a manner that gives businesses a distribution channel with significantly lower acquisition and operational costs," he said. "Comparing this system to a vending machine is like comparing a new Lamborghini to a Model T."
