We’re clearly not the only ones dreaming of a revolutionized shopping experience this holiday season. Remodista – which hosts Bricks + Mobile – shared this YouTube video of consumers sharing their mobile wishes for retailers. It will be interesting to see how much the retail experience has changed by this time next year.
We’re thrilled to announce the Isis Mobile Innovation Forum: Capitalize on the Contactless Future will take place in Austin on Feb. 21-22. As you know, Austin is a key launch market for Isis next year and mecca for technology innovation. It’s the perfect place to convene point of sale software companies, value added resellers and merchants for a discussion about the business opportunities created by Isis and mobile payments.
The event will include in-depth sessions previewing the future of commerce. Attendees will also get a first-hand look at the Isis platform.
Event registrations opens on Dec. 1. For more information about the event and agenda, visit http://isisinnovationforum.com/ or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Look forward to seeing you here!

A new Juniper Research report projects mobile coupons will exceed $43 billion by 2016 – a big increase from $5.4 billion in 2011. As report author David Snow explains, “To ignore the potential of mobile coupons would be to ignore the future of mobile commerce.” Mobile commerce platforms like Isis enable mobile coupon delivery and redemption, presenting merchants with opportunities to build customer loyalty.
