KODAK ALARIS IS NOW LAUNCHING ITS -COLLECT IN STORE- SOLUTION TO IRISH KODAK KIOSK OWNERS IN ITS FULL FORMAT
October 2016 – Kodak Alaris have recently
extended their Net to Retail concept to the Irish photo retail market.
The solution enables
customers to create personalised photo products for collection at their local
retailer in as little as an hour through the Kodak Moments App.
The App is available free of charge to iPhone as
well as Android users and can be downloaded to smartphones and tablets. After
installing the Kodak Moments App on their device, users choose where to print
their photos based on their shopping behaviour.
Depending on the customer’s location at the time of
ordering there are three options. When using the App in-store at a photo retail
business supporting the Net to Retail solution, the customer can directly
connect to a kiosk for instant printing. While this option was previously
available to the Irish market, the Kodak Moments App is now accessible in its
full extension for Irish customers. In addition to the in-store service,
products can be ordered for Pick-Up Instore or for Delivery to Home, both of
these options can be chosen from any location within the UK and Ireland. After
selecting their preferred option of collection, customers create their photo
product directly on their device, choosing from a wide range of prints,
photobooks and other photo gifting products.
Signing up for Net to Retail as a retailer comes at
no cost while Kodak Alaris automatically receive a share of each order placed
through the Kodak Moments App.
With over 20 million global downloads since its
launch, the Kodak Moments App has not only given existing customers of
high-street stores a new interface to place their orders but also brought new
customers into existing stores. Considering the average order placed through
Net to Retail has an order value of €8, this new option generates 46% higher
revenue than orders entirely processed in store.
To support stores with promoting the Kodak Moments
App, Kodak Alaris runs a variety of marketing activities throughout the year
such as promotions available exclusively on the app as well as instore

Dublin (OHD) photography competition again in 2016.
This year the focus of the competition are the buildings that are

architecture festival. The Presence of
the Past aims to tell the story through a contemporary lens of how cities are
created and developed over time and the people that participate in the
construction, design, development and of the built environment. It will also
seek to uncover aspects of the past that we can implement in future built
environment strategies and policies.
This year’s Open House Dublin will reveal how we plan and build our
environment conveys a lot about our priorities at a given time in history,
society, politics and culture. Therefore, architecture is more than a physical
material that can be measured in centimetres. It is also about experience,
memory and aesthetics, both immeasurable qualities, but crucially important in
establishing and communicating the value of architecture to an audience.
The Presence of the Past explores the central role of architecture in our
society, how it frames and structures the patterns and practices of our
collective life, from domestic to civic, from personal to public.
