Tilly’s taps MicroStrategy for mobile commerce app

BY Staff Writer

Tysons Corner, Va. — MicroStrategy Inc. announced that West-coast based specialty retailer Tilly’s has launched a state-of-the-art mobile commerce app powered by MicroStrategy’s Alert Mobile Commerce Platform.

Available for iPhone and Android smartphones, the app lets Tilly’s create a branded connection with its customers. Features include access to exclusive Tilly’s content, a streamlined mobile shopping experience, and wallet functionality that allows personalized promotions and receipts. Alert is a cloud-based platform that lets retailers deploy a branded mobile commerce app in a matter of weeks, without the high cost and delay of developing an application from scratch and maintaining it on their own.

Tilly’s, a purveyor of West Coast inspired apparel, footwear and accessories, chose to work with the Alert Platform because of its rich feature set, its ability to easily integrate with their existing customer systems, and its speed-to-market.

“We want every customer that interacts with Tilly’s to have an exceptional and consistent experience, whether they’re in-store, online, or on their mobile phone,” said Craig DeMerit, Tilly’s COO, Tilly’s, which operates 168 stores. “With the Alert platform, we were able to quickly roll out a compelling mobile app to our customers that provides them with an enhanced experience of our brand. We launched the Tilly’s app before the holidays and have seen our customers respond positively to downloading it and using the great features available.”

Wal-Mart to join Arkansas healthcare initiative

BY Katherine Boccaccio

Little Rock, Ark. — Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Arkansas governor Mike Beebe announced Thursday that Wal-Mart will join an Arkansas program intended to change the way that private insurers and Medicaid pay for services. Wal-Mart’s Arkansas employees’ insurance plans, which cover about 57,000 workers, will become a part of the statewide program.

The retailer has committed $670,000 toward a tracking system to measure the program’s success as well as distribute information about the reforms.

Wal-Mart will also serve on an employer advisory council for the state.

The Arkansas Payment Improvement Initiative moves away from a fee-for-service model to one where insurers pay for "episodes" of care rather than each individual treatment.

"Governor Beebe is leading a first-of-a-kind payment-reform effort in Arkansas that health experts elsewhere are following closely. We respect the work being done in Arkansas, and we are excited about the opportunity to offer real support to such a meaningful project in our home state," said Sally Welborn, Wal-Mart’s SVP benefits.
