APW Brands Unveils iQmetrix XQ Interactive Retail Solution at Philadelphia International Airport

Partnership Enhances APW Brands Stores with Engaging Touchscreen Shopping Experience


VANCOUVER, BC – July 31, 2012 – iQmetrix, a leading provider of retail management solutions, today announced that APW Brands, an airport-based retailer of consumer electronics and wireless accessories, has selected XQ Interactive Retail™ and RQ Retail Management System™ to deliver great experiences in its stores. The Philadelphia International Airport location is the first in a series of stores to be outfitted with interactive digitaldisplays that bring elements of online and mobile shopping experiences into the physical store through a suite of applications.


APW Brands chose iQmetrix’s end-to-end retail solutions – RQ4 Retail Management System and XQ Interactive Retail – to provide its customers with an engaging, efficient and unique shopping experience. RQ4 Retail Management is a complete software solution designed for wireless retailers to manage people, business processes and strategic decision-making, reducing the time and cost spent on coordinating administrative systems and back-office operations. XQ Interactive Retail, a suite of in-store touchscreen applications that engage, educate and guide customers through the sales process, brings the best of the online shopping experience into the in-store environment.


Boasting a sleek, stylized design aesthetic, APW Brands’ consumer electronics and wireless accessory stores can be found in major airports across the United States. When they began planning to expand into additional airport locations, APW Brands sought a cohesive retail management solution that would deliver integrated applications to run the business along with rich, interactive touchscreen software to attract, educate and engage its customers in the front of the house.





The newly remodeled Tech Interaction store in Terminal C of the Philadelphia International Airport celebrated its grand re-opening on March 20, 2012. Other stores slated for this new technology include Pittsburgh International, Baltimore, Washington International and Philadelphia International - Terminal B, with 4 additional stores to be rolled out in the coming months.
