Foursquare: All Customer Experience
Glass Adds Voice Access to Contacts
Target Data Breach Cost: $148 Million
Online Retailers Ponder Actual Stores
Infor Buys Cloud CRM App Saleslogix
As Facebook, Yelp and other services adopted similar check-in features, Foursquare gradually lost what made it special. So it branched out to become a Yelp-like local recommendations service.
The latest update to Google Glass will let users access their top 20 phone contacts with voice commands alone. A user can then choose a phone call, Google hangouts, e-mail or text messaging.
The now infamous Target data breach is still costing the company -- and its shareholders -- plenty. In fact, the retailing giant forecast the December 2013 incident cost shareholders $148 million.
Some of the hippest online retailers around are pioneering an old concept: offline retailing. After years of squeezing traditional retailers, e-commerce companies are seeing the value in stores.
Aiming to boost its CRM offerings, business application software and cloud services provider Infor has inked a deal to acquire Saleslogix’ cloud-based CRM application from Swiftpage.
