  Big Ideas 
  • Retailers offer multichannel deals to lure back shoppers
    E-commerce and m-commerce are growing fast, but many of the tech efforts implemented by multichannel retailers aim to bring shoppers back to their bricks-and-mortar stores. Geo-location programs, mobile price-comparison tools and the use of daily-deal sites such as Gap's successful Groupon offering are designed to drive in-store traffic.

  • Tech firms create social-networking startup fund
    Amazon, Facebook and four other technology companies have partnered to back a $250 million fund aimed at investing in social-networking startups. At an Oct. 21 launch event for the fund, led by early-stage tech-investment firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said his company is interested in supporting startups that will use the Amazon Web Services cloud-computing platform.

  • Privacy concerns keep retailers from integrating MS Tag
    None of the handful of high-profile merchants experimenting with Microsoft's mobile bar-code tool is using its interactive capabilities. They are held back by concerns over IT intrusiveness and customer privacy. The tools have the potential to add significantly to CRM efforts by providing a record of every purchase and every product that customers have seriously considered.

  • CEO wants new hires who know how to make money
    Kenneth Feld, chairman and CEO of Feld Entertainment, says when he interviews candidates to fill executive positions, he asks whether they know how to affect the bottom line. "I need them to understand that if they're going to come to work for our company, it's great that you have all this knowledge, but how can you translate that into something that is absolutely going to make money for us? Can they think unconventionally? Can they think outside the box?" he says. The New York Times (tiered subscription model) (10/23) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
  • Mind the basics at your next job interview
    Don't show up too early for an interview -- 5 to 10 minutes is good -- or the hiring manager will feel rushed to interview you, Jessica Holbrook Hernandez writes. Also, turn off your cell phone and put it out of sight before and during the interview, she advises. Careerealism.com (10/21) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
  What We're Working On 
  • U.K. liquor distributor sees immediate savings with RedPrairie's voice-pick system
    RedPrairie's recent installation of a voice-pick warehouse management solution at leading U.K. beverage distributor Matthew Clark resulted in immediate efficiencies and cost savings. "From the very first voice shift, we have completed picking earlier than we could have achieved with the previous system. We've improved stock accuracy, reduced stock losses, and staff training takes considerably less time," said manager John Hitchmough.

  • RedPrairie donation will help train the next generation of logistics professionals
    RedPrairie has donated an implementation of its warehouse-management software, along with a one-year contract, to the Don Frazier Supply Chain Training Center at the Applied Technology Center in Rock Hill, S.C. The Don Frazier center is a career and skills lab set up to train high school students interested in logistics careers.

  • 9 ways to make sure you're never without a workstation
    Hot desking is for amateurs; real leaders take their entire office with them wherever they travel. Nine designers have offered their solutions for the on-the-go executive, such as a foam office suite that can be reassembled into a giant wheelbarrow, a carry-on bag that expands into a full workstation and a hip-mounted desk that ensures you'll always have somewhere to park your laptop.
