Retail Planogram Compliance with Mixed Reality in Power Apps and Azure

Join Blueprint speaker Gary Nakanelua to learn how mixed reality retail solutions can reveal insights into customer behavior.

Retailers lose an estimated $10B to $15B in sales annually for failure to comply with store/merchandise planograms. Imagine you are a business leader for a brick-and-mortar retailer visiting one of your flagship stores. How can you turn these visitations into direct, actionable insights around customer interaction rather than relying on gut feeling and a supplied planogram?

What if, as you walk the aisles, you receive insight through mixed reality applications into how your customers have been interacting with your products. What if you could compare product placement with approved company planograms in real time? This technology is not as far out of reach as you might have imagined.

In this session, Blueprint’s Director of Innovation Gary Nakanelua will demonstrate an Azure + Power Platform solution that uses a Power App to combine mixed reality with the compute power of Azure to equip retail managers with real-time insight into planogram compliance and performance.
