Driving an immersive customer experience with Sitecore Experience Commerce + IoT by Jason Wilkerson - Sitecore MVP / Sitecore Architect at Wilkerson Consulting Inc

How can you leverage Sitecore to drive a better customer experience? In this session, we'll demonstrate how you can combine IoT, xConnect, xDB, Marketing Automation, EXM, and SXA, all tied together with Sitecore Experience Commerce, to deliver a more personalized, meaningful experience for customers at a fictional theme park called SitecoreLand! Using IoT devices to track entry and exit to and from the park as well as engagement with rides and concessions, we can provide incentives and special offers to park guests to optimize line wait times and concession traffic. With marketing automation and EXM we can upsell "Fast Passes" to skip long lines or cross sell ride or park merchandise. All of this can be done with a relatively small amount of effort!
