Furniture Row Improves Customer Experience With Oracle Commerce Solution

REDWOOD SHORES, CA, Jun 24, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) -- Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL) News Facts -- Because Denver Mattress customers often research items online before they buy, either at home or via a mobile device in the store, parent company Furniture Row has leveraged Oracle ATG Web Commerce, a component of Oracle Commerce, to help make sure the experience is a good one.

-- Furniture Row is using ATG Web Commerce to personalize content and recommendations, deliver cross-channel promotions and enable a "responsive design" that optimizes the site for the consumer's desktop or mobile device.

-- The e-commerce upgrade is part of a larger initiative to drive store traffic and increase sales across Denver Mattress stores in 30 states.

Denver Mattress Provides Advanced Search -- The newly upgraded Denver Mattress e-commerce site uses ATG Web Commerce to tailor recommendations based on available information such as where consumers link from, responses to promotions, previous site visits and transactions.

-- Furniture Row is using the ATG platform to improve customer service and increase sales by presenting Denver Mattress customers with personalized content and customized search options based on previous interactions and purchases, location and other factors.

-- In addition, Furniture Row is leveraging the solution's ability to immediately recognize the type of device a consumer is using, whether it is a cinema display television, a computer, tablet or smart phone, and then optimize the display for the screen.

-- The new Denver Mattress site is part of Furniture Row's broader Oracle footprint, in which the retailer uses Oracle ATG Web Commerce solutions for all of its e-commerce operations including: the main Furniture Row site, Sofa Mart, Oak Express, Bedroom Expressions, The Linen Shoppe, and Furniture Row(R) Racing.

-- Behind the scenes, ATG Web Commerce helps Furniture Row e-commerce teams to support many sites with single platform and efficient staffing.

-- Each brand's merchandising and marketing teams use the intuitive, easy-to-use ATG Web Commerce tools and interface to simplify content management, visually merchandise and develop and implement promotions.

-- As Furniture Row continues to drive growth, the retailer expects to leverage Oracle's scalable commerce platform to continue to optimize e-commerce operations and personalize the customer experience across all of its brands.

Supporting Quotes -- "Customers browse merchandise and compare items using their mobile phones right from the showroom floor, or they start their research at home before they come in," said Noah Linge, Director of Digital Marketing, Furniture Row. "We want to make that as easy as possible for them, to help them identify what they want, no matter where they are or what device they are using. We considered creating multiple applications for different consumer devices but we didn't want to have that extra step." -- "Furniture Row is among the first retailers to leverage the Oracle ATG Web Commerce functionality to launch a fully responsive site that literally will adapt to any consumer device," said Mike Webster, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Retail. "Oracle is committed to helping retailers optimize the customer experience across all touchpoints.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
