Intelligent Storefront Solutions

imageSurge develops groundbreaking Intelligent Storefront solutions
for Real Estate, Retail, Financial Services, Hospitality, and other verticals.

Every marketing platform has gone digital, except one — the Brick-and-Mortar Storefront has not changed in nearly a century — paper, plastic and static content still limit its possibilities.

The digital revolution has brought profound challenges to traditional retail. Consumers are bombarded with information on every one of their devices.  Online eCommerce leverages the power of digital media, delivers unlimited choice and convenience, and benefits from rigorous data.

While the physical experience remains irreplaceable (as demonstrated by Amazon’s recent expansion to brick-and-mortar) retailers can no longer compete using mannequins, boring real estate flyers, and minimal consumer data.

The dynamics of the digital revolution are inevitable, traditional retail and online commerce are converging.   THE BRICK-AND MORTAR STOREFRONT IS GOING DIGITAL, INTERACTIVE AND TRANSACTIONAL.  

 
 
 
 


What if there were a way to not only capture the attention of those passersby, but show them your inventory, get their contact information, and track which items are of highest interest to them — before they ever set foot inside your store? Essentially, bring their online experience to your storefront!

Our flagship offering is a “through-window” touch-interactive display solution that transforms an ordinary storefront window into a powerful digital marketing and transactional platform, without any modifications to the glass or other infrastructure.

 
 
 
 

Real time content

Full catalog of offerings (not just what you have in stock)

User analytics with actionable data

Different content formats including HD video and through-window audio

24/7 engagement, lead generation, and sales

Co-branding and 3rd-party advertising options

Our central advantage is a patent pending (US and International) on having the ONLY system to work through Low-E (double pane) windows, which represent a substantial and growing majority of commercial glass — current EPA estimates are over 80%.

imageSurge is the only company who can deliver the level of interactivity and attention-grabbing that today’s shoppers demand.

 
 
 
 

As we set out to revolutionize the brick and mortar storefront, the real estate industry was our first step.  From Coldwell Banker in Honolulu to Sotheby’s India, you can find imageSurge’s technology with leading global brands which represent over 25,000 real estate offices worldwide and 250,000 agents.

Our clients are now getting a lot more from their storefronts. In our case study, 86% of new leads came after normal business hours — none of which would have happened before imageSurge.

imageSurge clients, such as Jack Conway, winner of the Most Innovative Brokerage Award, have won prestigious marketing and technology awards on the strength of imageSurge technology. In 2013, we received Inman’s Innovator Award, the premier real estate technology award in the US.

We are ranked a Top 50 US Real Estate Service Provider by Real Estate Executive Magazine and are a preferred vendor within Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®.     

We’ve also partnered with the largest real estate company in the world, and have been successfully rolling out our products to Sotheby’s International Realty, one of its brands. More information: sirtouch-gallery.com.

 
 
 
 

Since going to market in the summer of 2013, we’ve generated over $1.6 million in revenues from sales and recurring service fees. We forecast accelerated growth in 2016. Make sure to request access to the Business Plan tab of this profile to see details of our SaaS revenue model.

 

We’ve established a fully scalable manufacturing, deployment, and support system with installations across North America including Vancouver, Puerto Rico, Hawaii as well as India and the Caribbean. We have outsourced an efficient deployment process, and built a robust software network to monitor system performance, deliver new features and provide actionable data to our clients.

This, combined with our US and international pending patent technology allowing pedestrians to interact with a touch-screen behind double-pane storefront windows, makes imageSurge perfectly positioned for unrivaled growth and market dominance.

Having patents to the only technology that works on over 80% of commercial windows, and receiving all our industry awards, has led to press features in a number of publications like NY1 TV, Bostinno, and Inman News.
