RedLaser general manager, Rob Veres, joined Don Chennavasin of Groupon, Tamara Mendelsohn from EventBrite, and Andrew Vilcsak from AirBnB on Tuesday for a panel discussion on taming the market in your pocket.
The discussion touched on mobile development organization design, how / if to integrate both merchant and user tools into a single application, the risk of notification-overload, and how consumers use mobile.
You can see the Twitter back-channel to the discussion on the #TameMarket hash-tag.
Next week, RedLaser is heading to the Mobile World Congress, a 60,000-attendee-strong conference held in Barcelona every year. We’re part of a broader eBay and PayPal coalition, all presenting a vision for the future of commerce, as the distinctions between online and offline shopping, buying, and researching continue to blur.
You can find RedLaser in Hall 7, hall of the “App Planet”:
Please drop by our booth to talk with us, but also to get some free coffee, espresso, and beer.
We’re also sponsoring the central paella restaurant. This sponsorship will highlight how RedLaser and PayPal can work with stores to make mobile purchases really easy. Conference-goers will be able to purchase paella (at a discount) from the RedLaser application, and pick it up without waiting in long lines. This marks the first demonstration of this kind of capability in a service setting, but it is an outgrowth of our partnership with Toys”R”Us.
Inside the stand, there will be a number of prominent QR codes. Scan one in RedLaser, and you’ll get a purchase screen which will look like this:
