Vocera Partners with National Retailer to Provide Connected Communication Solution for Employees
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 25, 2019--Vocera Communications, Inc. (NYSE:VCRA), a recognized leader in communication and workflow solutions, today announced that Nordstrom, Inc. is outfitting employees with wearable Vocera Badges in the majority of its full-line stores within the United States. Vocera technology allows salespeople to be hands-free and connect easily with colleagues and customers who are onsite or on the phone.
Interoperability between Nordstrom’s phone system and the Vocera Platform enables salespeople wearing a Vocera Badge to quickly and discreetly connect with instore colleagues at other locations with a simple touch of a button and voice command. If employees need to check on an item at another store, they can instantly connect by saying a location, individual name, role or department via their Vocera Badge. In the future, the integration will also enable store operators to connect call-in customers with the right person in the right department immediately on their wearable device.
“For more than 100 years, Nordstrom has found innovative ways to set the standard for service excellence and exceed the evolving expectations of consumers,” said Brent Lang, president and CEO at Vocera. “We are honored to provide solutions that advance this world-class organization along this exciting journey.”
