The platform was also recently showcased in an article on Microsoft's Enterprise blog, demonstrating how an IoT-driven CRM can make true retail personalization a reality:
For many years, retailers have been devising their own ways to pull customer data and incentivize purchases with membership and rewards programs. But due to the rise of omni-channel shopping and social media, they need to make sense of more data – from more sources – than ever before. Turning massive amounts of data from disparate sources into personalized offers requires highly sophisticated analysis. Microsoft and Plexure are introducing a solution that gives retailers the tools to deliver personalized retail in a way that truly sets them apart.
Plexure’s Retail Personalization solution leverages customer data to engage customers, empower employees, and optimize operations. It collects and analyzes data from websites, mobile, point-of-sale and connected in-store technology to tailor offers to individual customers or customer segments. It also arms store employees with cross-channel customer history in a single, unified view that makes it easy to deliver outstanding customer service.

A global convenience store retailer working with Plexure increased mobile transactions by 73% by targeting customers based on their spending habits and digital behavior.
