StorefrontBacktalk Week In Review Audiocast Recorded Thurs., Sept. 7, 2006

Our panel this week whipped up some sweet insights into Starbucks' headaches with an electronic coupon that they had intended to be strictly localized but the Web had other plans. It also jumped into the renewed interest from some major retailers into using closed-circuit video feeds for a lot more than catching thieves, including CRM and preventing child abductions.

Our panel this week featured IHL President Greg Buzek, the Retail Systems Alert Group's Steve Rowen, Forrester Research's Sucharita Mulpuru and The Lakewest Group's Sunita Gupta. StorefrontBacktalk Editor Evan Schuman moderated.
