Now you can do your competitive shopping from the comfort of your own sales floor. And so can your customers.
T-Mobile's new G1 phone comes pre-installed with ShopSavvy, an application that allows shoppers to instantly find the best price available for the item – both in stores and online.
Here’s the short version of how it works: The shopper chooses an item on your sales floor then scans the product's barcode with the phone’s built-in camera. In a matter of moments, a list of local and Internet prices for that product appear on the screen. The customer can choose to buy that item from you, ask the phone for directions to a local retailer with a lower price, or order the item online. And that’s not all. You have to see it to believe it.
