Piperlime Unveils A New Site Featuring Social Shopping Technology And Style Advice From Fashion "It" Girls

Introducing the New, Exclusive Piperlime Collection

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Piperlime, the online boutique known for being shoppers' connection to chic, is excited to reveal a new online shopping experience, featuring inspirational social media feeds, and introduce the first-ever Piperlime Collection.

www.piperlime.com

Since Piperlime's launch in 2006, the brand has sought to meet customers' desire to always be street-style ready. Inspired by their always-evolving, social media-savvy girl, Piperlime has enhanced its website to include streams of images filtered directly from Instagram providing customers with endless inspiration from fashion "it" girls to everyday women with effortless style. Shoppers will be able to click on these social images and shop the items to make these looks their own. Piperlime now feels like you are shopping the social feeds of the girl who always gets it right. Piperlime product pages will also feature styling ideas from bloggers and influencers, showing unique ways to style the same must-have pieces for each season.

"We're excited to integrate social media into our customers' shopping experiences," says Lexi Tawes, Vice President and General Manager of Piperlime. "Interweaving technology into our incredible mix of product and fashion expertise is making Piperlime more than a shopping destination; we've become a style resource."

Piperlime will continue to feature the most influential contemporary brands while introducing new up-and-coming labels – emulating the way its customer likes to dress with a mix of brands and price points. In addition to the site updates, the brand is revealing a new logo that embodies Piperlime as a true, elevated fashion destination.

"Our customer is the contemporary girl who loves to curate her own looks," says Jamie Lewin, Director of Design and Trend. "While we are always inspired by the runway, our girl looks more to street style and social media for tips on how to mix and match all of the pieces in her own way.  She blends investment and affordable pieces in a way that's cool, feminine and always true to herself."

Lewin leads the design team for the first-ever Piperlime Collection, an elevated assortment of apparel inspired by the chic and covetable style of the Piperlime girl. It will be available on www.piperlime.com and at the Piperlime SoHo store in September 2014. The trend-driven collection will feature 68 classic pieces ranging in price from $34-$170, and will evolve each season, complementing the other brands offered on the site.

Already known for providing access to celebrity style icons such as Piperlime Guest Editor Olivia Palermo, the brand will celebrate the evolution of the Guest Editor Program by featuring 25 "It Girls" whose social media feeds are just the type the Piperlime customer wants to shop. The program, which will kick-off with Supermodel Chrissy Teigen, will provide Piperlime customers with advice and tips from style stars such as Socialite Poppy Delevingne, Fashion Designer Claire Vivier, Blogger Julia Engel of Gal Meets Glam, Musician ZZ Ward, NYC Influencer Christina Tosi of Momofuku Milk Bar and many more.

Piperlime carries more than 300 apparel, footwear and accessories brands ranging from casual to designer. Piperlime customers receive free shipping and free returns on every order, along with 24-hour customer service via phone or email. Gap, Banana Republic and Old Navy credit cards are accepted, and customers can earn and redeem reward points at piperlime.com. Customers can also shop four other Gap Inc. online stores using the same shopping bag and one easy check out.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever.

Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
