Our solutions

Industry-defining solutions for contact-free commerce anywhere.

By Industry.

For retail to flourish in the post-COVID context, it must respond to new consumer preferences for contactless engagement, product selection, and purchase

Use Case I

Thinaire transforms retail experiences into contact-free customer engagement, and contact-free engagement into retail sales by enhancing products, product displays, media, store fixtures, and other retail objects with contactless touchpoints using NFC, QR and other technologies.

Use Case II

In 2020, retail associates should be able to be automatically accessed by customers on the customer’s personal mobile device, while being able to instantly answer: what’s in stock in my size?! Alas, few can. With Thinaire technology, bridge the social distancing gap, and empower your hosts to connect with customers by video chat, with just a consumer tap on a product or display, providing better service to customers and closing sales otherwise lost…all contact free

Powerfully engage consumers at the point of awareness. Deliver smarter offers without the hassle of apps.

Use Case I

Your expensive electronic billboard makes an impression; a potential customer wants to take action; we help you to find the shortest possible distance between these points.

Use Case II

Without any presence on your customer’s device, we use their passive digital signature, along with screens that are already in the environment, to make existing advertising campaigns come alive with relevant custom content.

On-pack, in-pack, or embedded into the product itself, a sophisticated ecosystem of tags now exists at every price point — and all current-generation devices are now able to read them!

Use Case I

The customer’s physical movement through the store tells us what they’re shopping for; the tag on the product they pick up delivers offers that match their retail profile. Add loyalty for even deeper levels of data-driven path-to-purchase engagement, and enable purchase, right there in the aisle.. No check-out lines to stand in.

Use Case II

Luxury purchases are only partially about the product; enhance the lifestyle and aspirational signaling assets of your brand by building a long digital tail that continues to deliver content, promotions, and social context long after the purchase and unboxing at home.

It’s no longer enough to simply sell a seat! Consumers expect a full-service experience at concerts and sporting events. Transform your in-stadium retail with Thinaire.

Use Case I

Experiential upsell. Manage traffic and expectations for monetized interactions with the team, seamlessly and fairly, by leveraging the devices fans already have with them.

Use Case II

Extend the experience before and after the event by creating a virtual stadium precinct to include local businesses and sponsors.

By Technology.

NFC

Now available on all current-generation smart devices, unlock the power of NFC’s delivery, identity, and payment services with Thinaire.

QR

Automatically recognized by all current-generation smart devices, QR codes offer a range of powerful, automatic interactions, and can be added instantly and frictionlessly to products, packaging, or advertising.

By Goal.

Offer your customers the safety of contact-free transactions

The world is changing and new consumer behaviors are taking hold in a post-COVID economy. Allow Thinaire to help you manage through it with truly innovative contactless engagement technologies to power the new normal.

Price, collect, and structure monetization.

You’ve built a retail experience responsive to trend and your customers appreciate it. But you suspect that there remain sales opportunities that you may be missing. How about on tap automating “buy again” or a subscription purchase, offering direct home delivery? A post-sale, post-delivery automated product registration and service contract purchase? An affinity program aligning your customers interests with your corporate philanthropy? All these and many other are ways to add value to contactless engagement, to further monetize the retail experience. But how do you price, collect, and structure the monetization? We’re experts in exactly this aspect, and can help you build new revenue streams from your strong engagement.

Make every touchpoint a point-of-sale

How many more SKUs will your product lines support? And what’s the right mix of actual and virtual inventory? How do you enable out-of-store fulfilment without cannibalising in-store margin. Thinaire can help. We’ve answered these questions for the most experience-forward companies in your industry, and we can help you win.

Following is a legal document known as thinaire’s terms of service. It exists to make sure everyone on the service is properly protected. We have added some pull-out quotes that turn the legalese in plain English. This document is effective as of  March 21st, 2016 and was last updated on March 21st, 2016.

I. Introduction and Eligibility

Please read these Terms of Use (“Terms”) carefully before using the thinaire Service.

These Terms include thinaire’s Privacy Policy, which is incorporated by reference into these Terms.  When you access any thinaire services through software, these Terms also incorporate the End User License Agreement (EULA) provided with such software.  We have included several annotations in boxes to help explain the legal jargon and emphasize key sections.  These annotations are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.

This agreement is a legally binding contract.  It may change as our business changes, and you agree you will review it and any updates regularly.

Binding Agreement

These Terms constitute a binding agreement between you and Thinaire, Inc. and its affiliates and subsidiaries (“thinaire,” “we,” “us”).  “The Service” shall mean any services provided by Thinaire, Inc. “You” and “users” shall mean all visitors to the thinaire services.  You accept these Terms each time you access the thinaire Service or thinaire.net.  If you do not accept these Terms, you must not use the thinaire Service or thinaire.net.

Revisions to Terms

We may revise these Terms at any time by posting an updated version to this web page. You should visit this page periodically to review the most current Terms, because you are bound by them.  Your continued use of the Service after a change to these Terms constitutes your binding acceptance of these Terms.

Sorry but we can’t yet have kids on the service. If you’re under 13, we love you and all that but haven’t figured out a way to keep it legal for you to use thinaire. 

Children

No part of the Service is directed to persons under the age of 13.  IF YOU ARE UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE PLEASE DO NOT USE OR ACCESS The Service AT ANY TIME OR IN ANY MANNER.  If you are under 18 years of age, you represent and agree that you possess the legal consent of your parent or guardian to access and use the thinaire Service.

The terms “post” or “posting” as used in these Terms shall mean the act of submitting, uploading, publishing, displaying, or similar action on the Service.

II.The thinaire Service

The thinaire Service (or “the Service”) means any website, mobile application, software, or Internet service under thinaire’s control, whether partial or otherwise, and whether offered directly or through a third party, in connection with providing the services provided by thinaire.  The Service provides a platform that allows anyone to track media coming from television, beacons, NFC, QR code, associate campaigns to that media, and get relevant analytics on that data.

Our services are subscription based.

You may be charged fees by our payment processors. All purchases are final; there are no refunds.

Fees Charged by Third-Party Payment Processors

You may suspend text messages in multiple ways. You may close your account or change your preference using the Service.  You may also use our API to disassociate your number from your account.  thinaire does not charge a fee for text messages, however, standard messaging, data, and other fees may be charged by your wireless service carrier.  thinaire is not responsible for those changes.

We send and receive text messages through cellular telephone operators or other networks, and the level of reliability may vary.  thinaire is not responsible for the timeliness or final delivery of the message, as this is out of our control and is the responsibility of the cellular telephone operator or other networks.

VIII. Copyright Policy

Tell us if you think a user has violated your copyright using the Service, or if you think someone incorrectly reported that you violated his or her copyright.

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials posted on the Service infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send Thinaire a “Notification of Claimed Infringement” requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked.  The notice must include the following information:

      • 1. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the works that have been allegedly infringed;
      • 2. Identification of the copyrighted work alleged to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the Service are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works);
      • 3. Identification of the specific material alleged to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow Thinaire to locate the material on the Service;
      • 4. Your name, address, telephone number, and email address (if available);
      • 5. A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
      • 6. A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send Thinaire a counter-notice.

Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright/ for details.  Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Service should be sent to Thinaire, DMCA Takedown dept.,One Penn Plaza, Suite 2010, New York, NY 10119 ([dmca @ thinaire.net]).  Consult your legal advisor and see 17 U.S.C. § 512 before filing a notice or counter-notice as there are penalties for false claims under the DMCA.

IX. Suggestions and Submissions

We appreciate hearing from our users and welcome your comments regarding the Service.  Please be advised, however, that we do not accept or consider creative ideas, suggestions, inventions, or materials (“creative ideas”) other than those which we have specifically requested.  While we value your feedback on its services, please be specific in your comments and do not submit creative ideas.  If, despite this request, you send us creative ideas, we:
