An Augmented Reality View of Cisco Vision at the Cisco Store

Cisco Store Xplorer App

On the last episode of Tech Tuesday, we demonstrated an augmented reality view of Cisco Meraki at the Cisco Store. This week, we're taking it a step further: We're viewing Cisco Vision through an augmented reality lens, and demonstrating how we can control the real world, through an augmented one. Throughout this episode, our Tech Expert Brian will demonstrate how customers can use Cisco Store Xplorer to learn more about the Cisco Vision digital signage solution deployed in the store, and even change the screens in real time through the augmented reality application.

Through the customizable hotspot, this time in bright blue, customers have the options of viewing the Welcome, Learn More, and Campaign Ads options. When Brian clicks on the "Welcome" option, the in-store signage will change to display a message just for him, personalized through the Xplorer app. He is welcomed to the store with a 10% off coupon code that he can scan to redeem at checkout. While interacting with the Cisco Vision hotspot, he'll also have the opportunity to learn more about the technology, which will bring him to a window with further information and product details on the Cisco Vision webpage. Finally, with the Campiagn Ads option, Brian will be able to see, in real time, the screens change to display the latest Cisco brand campiagn ads created by the Hatch, Cisco's in house creative agency. Within the Xplorer application, Brian can easily switch the screen between displays to engage with the content he most wants to see. Learn more about Cisco Vision digitial signage here.

An Augmented Reality View of Cisco Meraki at the Cisco Store

Cisco Store Augmented Reality App

At the Cisco Store Tech Lab, we are constantly exploring new ways to educate our audience about our Cisco + partner ecosystem. In this episode of Tech Tuesday, we're showcasing our latest method of showing off our technology, with the newly launched Cisco Store Xplorer app. Cisco Store Xplorer is an augmented reality application empowering every user to learn about and engage with Cisco and partner technology. Through the lens of a mobile device, hotspots reveal in store technology which can be further explored at the touch of a screen. Xplorer will be available in the app store upon return to office. On this episode, our Tech Expert Brian will demonstrate how our audience can use the Xplorer app to learn about our Meraki MV 12 cameras.

Throughout the video, Brian will demonstrate how customers at the Cisco Store in San Jose can use their own mobile devices to uncover "hotspots" throughout the store that offer more information about selected technologies. Customers can read more about the technology at the "tell me" tab, or click on the "show me" tab to get an actual live feed of the Meraki camera. Additionally, customers can see related technology information, in this case, the MV32 Meraki cameras deployed throughout the store. We are able to fully customize these hotspots in our content manegement system to place the cards and hotspots throughout the store.

Selling Smarter with Square at the Cisco Store

Square PoS

On this week’s episode of Tech Tuesday, our Tech Expert Brian Domine will be highlighting one of our most important partner technologies: Square. We use Square technology as our point of sales system at the Cisco Store. Square helps us to quickly and easily check our customers out, and integrates on the backend with other technologies that provides us with a holistic view of what’s happening in our store.

To begin, Brian will show off the different hardware elements of our Square Pos sales system. The Square system is made up of the large white terminal with a touch screen, easy for the salesperson to rotate around for the customer to sign for their purchase. Our Square PoS also contains a card reader, that has the ability to read chips and pins, but also allows for contactless payment forms, such as Apple pay, Google pay, etc. When checking out a customer, Square gives the customer the option for a text receipt or email receipt, as well as contactless, no signing option.

Why is using Square so important at the Cisco Store? Square helps us better understand the store program and our customers, by giving us the ability to integrate with other partner technologies deployed throughout the store. As Brian explains, we can integrate our Square PoS with the Dor occupancy sensors we have deployed to perform people counting. This integration helps us correlate the number of people in the store and the number of purchases during a certain time, helping to calculate our conversion rate. Learn more about Dor at the Cisco Store here

Square also has the ability to integrate with our online Magento, enterprise edition ecommerce system. This allows us to create a buy online, pick up curbside solution at the Cisco Store. Interested in learning more about that solution? Check out the full demonstration at our virtual booth in the World of Solutions at Cisco Live 2021! Register here. Learn more about Square PoS here.
