Digby today announced RIS News has named Cabela’s®, an outdoor sporting goods
retailer, as a winner of the 2012 RIS News Fusion Awards. Presented at the RIS
News Cross-Channel Retail Executive Summit/Social-Mobile Convergence Forum,
the awards recognize retail companies that are leaders, successful performers
and technology innovators, specifically in the area of cross-channel
excellence and fusing IT solutions with business strategy.

The panel of judges have recognized initiatives that use mobile technology to
effectively promote cross-channel customer activity, leading to enhanced
customer experience, greater linkage of retail sites and communication
channels, and achievement of strong business performance benefits. Cabela's,
through its new application powered by Digby Localpoint, is leading the way
for retailers by incorporating ways to directly engage with its customers
through its own mobile app leveraging location, marketing, analytics and
commerce. Cabela’s enhances its branded catalog and in-store experiences by
incorporating a barcode and QR code scanner into its mobile app so consumers
can scan products in store or in the Cabela’s catalog to learn more about
products, including product descriptions, ratings and reviews, videos and
promotional offers.

“We’re honored that RIS News recognizes Cabela’s as a technology innovator
with a strong cross-channel mobile strategy,” said Kevin Bauer, Director of
Digital Commerce, Cabela’s. “As more and more consumers begin to pull out
their phones in the retail store to assist them with buying decisions, having
a branded rich app that keeps consumers inside the Cabela's experience instead
of a third-party app will provide shoppers with a more seamless and enjoyable
shopping experience.”

“Cabela’s mobile strategy puts the retailer at the top of its game, and we’re
excited to see them recognized as a cross-channel leader in mobile
technology,” said Dave Sikora, founder and CEO, Digby. “Cabela’s branded
mobile app has driven brand awareness, increased customer acquisition and
loyalty, and greatly enhanced the shopping experience for consumers who have
more shopping venue choices than ever before.”
