#CMPTO Merry Christmas and a Happy New Retail

That "always be selling" line from Glengary Glen Ross? Nothing has made that a more attractive proposition than the tech being developed and used around us today. Join us as we look at how companies are using new technology and different retail models to shake up the shopping space!

Our presenters are:

GoPayment - Intuit's GoPayment is one of the first mobile payment options to become available in Canada. It uses a free card reader and app to give sellers a secure POS from the comfort of their mobile device.

Mail A Tale - Mail A Tale is a monthly subscription of hand picked children's books, delivered right to your door. Their adorable book boxes contain books that are chosen to match the subscriber’s age, interests, and reading level.

Shopify - Shopify is a clean and simple ecommerce platform that allows you to sell online by making it super easy to create an online store. It's one of the fastest growing companies in Canada now with over 30,000 customers worldwide.

    The Shopify presentation was a bit generic, but still interesting. I was strangely intrigued by Intuit's GoPayment venture... the speaker did a good job. We already have a payment processing solution, but GoPayment and its competitors seem to be reaching that last 1% of businesses (which would include many indie publishers). MailaTale was an interesting presentation – Anila has probably contacted my company already because Mr. and Mrs. Bunny: Detectives Extraordinaire is on the first page of their web site.

    Good progression of speakers ending on a very high note with Mail A Tale.

    I really enjoyed the evening--this was my first CMPTO. I felt that the first two presentations were a bit short, and didn't relate closely enough to publishing to encourage a discussion. The presentation from Intuit, in particular, felt like a sales pitch--it definitely was one.
