In addition to serving ads and content across the network, the solution will enable instant barcode scanning to bring additional product information to shoppers and deliver more measurable data to vendors and advertisers.
“We want to connect our 60 plus locations together under a unified communication program that focuses on product education, helping both our advisors and customers learn more about the natural health products available, ultimately helping us sell more products to consumers while at the same time reducing our dependency on printed marketing brochures” – states Wayne Parent, President and CEO of Nutrition House.
This is a great example of ability of a niche, focused network delivering additional functionality to the end-user (beyond simplistic ad-revenue share) continuing to thrive and expand while many generalists find it hard to compete.
