“The number of connected devices numbers in the billions, bringing the long-cherished vision of the Internet of Things into today’s reality. The synergistic relationship between mobile application deployment and cloud infrastructure is becoming the mainstay of the computing world—and opens up a new venue for innovation,” says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “This year’s OnMobile 100 winners represent the companies that are connecting devices, running vital consumer and enterprise applications, and propelling technology into the future.

“Ninety percent of spending occurs in-store, and 75 percent of consumer spending occurs within 15 miles of home,” said Jeremy Geiger, CEO, Retailigence. “But the impact of mobile on in-store sales is growing. A recent Deloitte survey found five percent of in-store purchases influenced by mobile in 2012, a figure expected to grow to 20 percent by 2016. The challenge for brands is to ensure consumers can use their mobile devices to make the local connection to products they’re searching for. Retailigence’s technology provides the missing link, enabling brands and retailers to increase their share of local sales revenue using O2O marketing strategies and technology solutions.”
Retailigence drives Online-to-Offline (020) shopping behavior by leveraging unique access to location-based product and brand data as well mobile shopper insights.
