Customer challenge

Online shopping is an indispensable phenomenon in today's retail landscape. Shopping via the digital highway has its advantages. It is fast, easy and offers people the comfort of browsing in a personalized environment.


MediaMarktSaturn, Europe’s leading consumer electronics commerce company, is actively responding to this trend with the integration of its own StoreGuide app with the Philips Indoor positioning system (IPS).

The right lighting


“Through Visible Light Communication Technology each LED luminaire sends a unique identification code to the customer’s smartphone via the smartphone camera, which can determine the location highly accurately," says Kevin Raaijmakers, Marketing Manager Indoor Benelux Philips Lighting. “Depending on their position in the store, customers receive real time, location related information about specific products and attractive offers in their StoreGuide app. Customers will be directed to within 30 centimeters of interesting products through indoor positioning. Searching is no longer necessary. And: privacy is guaranteed because no personal data is collected by the lighting system.”


Ideal Set Up

That MediaMarkt in her quest for a partner chose Philips, is no coincidence. Martin: " We were immediately interested in Philips’ LED-based Indoor positioning system due to its accuracy, its easy maintanance. "

Especially for the occasion, Philips provided the flexible Maxos Fusion LED lighting system that guarantees an excellent light quality, is 50% more energy efficient than fluorescent or CDM lighting and has integrated the IPS technology by default. Maxos Fusion also reduces the installation and maintenance costs and provides the freedom to place spots anywhere on the light line.
