Actionable takeaways attendees will receive from visiting our booth:
The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) oversees compliance with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA), which sets out the ground rules for how businesses subject to the law must handle personal information in the course of commercial activities. In this digital world where personal information can be collected, used and shared with ease, Canadians are becoming increasingly concerned about their privacy. And more and more, they are choosing to do business with organizations that are sensitive to those concerns and that can demonstrate they will handle personal information with the appropriate level of care.
Mobile devices and traditional desktop computing have completely changed how people engage with the world: how we collectively interact, share our thoughts and experiences, and how we expect other people to interact with us.
Pair this with the needs of a retailer and the concept of sales and marketing changes dramatically. Your customers now fully expect to be marketed and sold to; however, with this comes the desire for marketing to be a fully personalized, engaged experience that speaks only to them.
At omNovos, we are enabling this new, personalized world by creating an evolved technological ecosystem that supports the customer and the retailer, and fully connects your online and physical stores. You will connect to your customer while enabling better customer conversion metrics through full omni-channel customer engagement.
Our Mobile Suite enables this personalized connectivity, including mobile device-enabled tools for customers and in-store staff. And our Data Connectivity Services provide the expertise to successfully integrate all aspects of a customer-engagement system.

truRating is a mass point-of-payment rating system that gives customers a chance to have a say when they pay. By answering one simple, anonymous question via the payment terminal, customers can rate an aspect of their experience in an instant by pressing 0-9 on the keypad (0 is terrible, 9 amazing). This could be, “Please rate the service from 0-9” or “Please rate the product range from 0-9”. Each consumer rating feeds two websites. Business owners are able to see their ratings over time, compare their ratings against anonymous competitors, link customer sentiment to spend and get detailed analytics whilst consumers have access to a recommendations site they can trust, with ratings from validated customers. Businesses can make improvements based on a constant stream of timely, representative consumer opinion (88% response for 1.5million ratings since Feb 2015) and customers can have their say, quickly, securely and without hassle.
