"From its huge inventory of wines and spirits to its expertise in making recommendations for any occasion, Hi?Time has so much to offer its customers and it wanted to put that wealth of knowledge at their fingertips in the form of our iViu application," said Chris Turner, CEO of iViu Technologies.

A retailer typically includes updates on promotions, shopping tips, photos, videos, special events, reviews and recommendations. Retailers can deliver instantaneous, value-added information to engage customers, increase loyalty and move them one step closer to a purchase decision.
"The iViu application plays a critical role in distributing information to our customers exactly when they want it and when it is relevant. We feature staff picks, special offers, wine tastings and much more," said Diana Hirst, CEO of Hi?Time. "By providing real-time information that is convenient to our customers, we can deliver an engaging and personal experience that differentiates our brand."
