Interactive Kiosks in 30 Centers
EDMONTON, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/22/14 -- Visionstate Inc.,
a division of CSM Systems Corp (TSX VENTURE: CKX), and CBL &
Associates Properties Inc. (NYSE: CBL) have agreed to implement a
network of interactive kiosks throughout retail centres across the
United States. An estimated 90 kiosks, at 30 CBL properties, will be
installed within the next twelve months beginning with two locations
in Madison, Wisconsin.
East Towne Mall and West Towne Mall have been chosen to be the first
locations to receive the ViCCi (Virtual Customer Care Interface) that
is designed to greatly improve the shopping experience and provide an
outlet for interactive advertising.
"CBL is always looking for new technology partners and business
platforms to provide our shoppers with greater convenience,
functionality, and point-of-sale communication. Accordingly, we are
pleased to be one of the first national mall developers to bring
digital directories to our customers, retailers, and partners. We are
confident that the Visionstate directory units will make the
shopping, dining, and entertainment experience at select CBL malls
more enjoyable and convenient. The units will provide our shoppers
with customized real-time information directly from retailers,
advertisers, local emergency officials, and other related parties.
Additionally, the navigation tools within the units are designed to
complement how consumers shop naturally, and the vast array of
information that is available will enhance the shopping experience,"
stated Jim Ward, Vice-President, Brand Development.
ViCCi is an interactive software designed by Visionstate Inc. to
assist shoppers with their informational needs including tenant
location, 3D maps, sales/promotions, job postings, and directory
searching by category, keyword, and alphabet, all on a large-format
(55 inch) touchscreen display. Visionstate's ViCCi advanced software
also provides shopping centers a creative way to actively involve
shoppers with promotional campaigns.
"We are very excited to have the opportunity to collaborate with CBL,
as they are one of the largest mall REIT's in North America. ViCCi
will be an engaging addition that will increase the already stellar
shopper experience, as well as bring new opportunities for revenue
generation through advertising," stated John Putters, President and
