The emotional and interactive shopping experience

An interactive kiosk application assists Paul the robot at selected Saturn stores in Germany and Austria and provides information about product features and locations.

As a "digital receptionist", Paul says hello to customers, masters casual small talk and takes them directly to the product they are looking for. While Paul is on the move, customers can call up information about the product and its location on the kiosk touch screen. Project Paul shows how the interaction with digital systems contributes to a positive shopping experience and increases customer satisfaction.

The project was realised in cooperation with MediaSaturn N3xt.

The benefits of e-commerce at the POS

Customer reviews, product ratings and test videos have become an integral part of online business. In fact, they represent some of the most important factors for sales conversion rates. The start-up, weview GmbH, and xplace have developed a solution to deliver product test videos from online users to the POS. This allows the retailer to deliver the kind of product advice that customers know and value from e-commerce. This results in more customer satisfaction, fewer abandoned purchases and an increased sales conversion rate.

AI-supported promotion with digital signage and electronic shelf labels

AI-controlled dynamic pricing combined with digital signage increases both customer retention and your earnings. This demonstrates our “strawberry case”:

With a customized interface provided by xplace, digital signage content is managed automatically depending on the price of a certain product. When the price of strawberries falls under a certain threshold, they are advertised on digital signage screens together with cake bases. When their price rises again, the digital signage content also changes, following the dynamic pricing arithmetic.


This is a project in cooperation with prudsys AG.

Consistent and dynamic pricing - online and offline

The synchronisation of online and offline pricing and simultaneous updates on all channels facilitates the implementation of electronic price labels. They form the condition for dynamic pricing and linking both channels. Standard online and offline prices reduce the number of abandoned purchases and by doing so contribute to the optimisation of conversion rates. xplace has launched the world's largest ESL roll-out for Media Saturn, with over 10 million price labels in 1,000 stores throughout Europe.
