The US real estate crisis was followed by a financial crisis. The effects are still showing up in Europe.

Finland tried to say that "no problems. Nevertheless, we're experiencing an industrial downturn.

What will happen to retail and shopping during 2009?

How can we replace and revitalize all the industrial capacity lost during the past ten years?

​Olli Hietanen, Head of Development for the Finland Futures Research Centre, talks calmly but decisively about an uncertain future. Hietanen says that large social and economic changes will occur even faster in the future.

“Why would we restrict ourselves to building ships, when we could build houses, energy plants, factories, shopping centres and spas in the sea – anything. On the other hand, if we stop making ships soon, we can use the same technological expertise in air, on land, or even in space.”

“Instead of bemoaning our fate, we should take a different attitude towards what is going on in the world and ask first what opportunities the new situation can bring. Even if it involves destruction, such as a pandemic or war, because even those things always open possibilities.”

“All creative, completely different thinking is usually born in small companies that, in time, grow into new giants in their field. Or at the very least, their networks grow into large ecosystems. The essential thing is that we have a society that constantly generates something new.”

The meaning of Futuro Store is Changing. Take a look at this:

"Creative Destruction Is a Great Opportunity"

​Olli Hietanen, Head of Development for the Finland Futures Research Centre, talks calmly but decisively about an uncertain future. Hietanen says that large social and economic changes will occur even faster in the future.

“If there is any phenomenon that controls the modern day, it's the increasing speed of change. The people trying to prop up the old will have a hard time of it. Those who can make change into a strength and invent new things continuously will have the competitive advantage,” says Hietanen.

According to Hietanen, the maritime industry has gotten stuck on the production of cruise ships. He does not claim that maritime industry is entering its twilight years. On the contrary: in the future, people will be more and more involved with the sea.  It is simply that the expertise related to the cruise ships prevents Finns from seeing that the maritime industry goes far beyond cruise ships.

“Why would we restrict ourselves to building ships, when we could build houses, energy plants, factories, shopping centres and spas in the sea – anything. On the other hand, if we stop making ships soon, we can use the same technological expertise in air, on land, or even in space.”

“Instead of bemoaning our fate, we should take a different attitude towards what is going on in the world and ask first what opportunities the new situation can bring. Even if it involves destruction, such as a pandemic or war, because even those things always open possibilities.”

When large companies move their jobs abroad, they should be replaced by cultivating small and medium-sized businesses that do completely new things and create jobs.

“All creative, completely different thinking is usually born in small companies that, in time, grow into new giants in their field. Or at the very least, their networks grow into large ecosystems. The essential thing is that we have a society that constantly generates something new.”

There are already new, creative companies in the maritime industry germinating in the shadow of the shipbuilding industry in Southwest Finland and Satakunta. According to Hietanen, the society should just be able to nurture the creative maritime, forest and information industry much more. The nation should be encouraged to be enthusiastic and become entrepreneurs.

“Our high level of expertise together with entrepreneurial spirit would be a ’killer’ combination. The problem is finding the can-do spirit in Finland.”
“If we stop making ships soon, we can use the same technological expertise in air, on land, or even in space.”

Useimmissa länsimaissa julkinen sektori hallitsee edelleen suurinta osaa terveydenhuollosta, koulutuksesta, infrastruktuurista, jäte- ja energiahuollosta.

Ajan myötä valtio voisi myös huolehtia tuotannosta ja palveluista - ja maksaa yhteiskunnan kroonisesti työttömille kansalaisille tai tarjota heille tavaroita ja palveluita. 

Jeremy RIFKIN julkaisi vuonna 1996 "The End of Work" kirjansa: hän ei usko, että uusi teknologia luo riittävästi uusia työpaikkoja, niin kuin aiemmin on käynyt.

Kaikilla perinteisillä talouden sektoreilla - maatalous, valmistus ja palvelut - tapahtuu tällä hetkellä teknistä kehitystä, joka pakottaa miljoonat työttömyyteen.

Ainut uusi sektori, joka on syntymässä, on tietosektori, joka koostuu pienestä eliitistä, jossa on yrittäjiä, tutkijoita, teknikkoja, ohjelmoijia, kouluttajia ja konsultteja.

Tämä sektori kasvaa, mutta sen ei odotetan tarjoavan töitä kuin murto-osalle niistä sadoista miljoonista, jotka menettävät tulevina vuosikymmeninä työpaikkansa informaatio- ja viestintäteknologian mullistusten myötä.

The future of industrial production in Finland is a big ? Nevertheless, there are talks about Poyry's prediction that there is space for two big cellulose plants in Finland producing 1 000 000 tpa of long fibre for packing industries. The same with LKAB in Kiruna, Sweden. They planned to close the mine a few decades ago, but now natural resources industries are going strong. That doesn't apply for all new mines.

Tulevaisuuskauppa ei välttämättä ratkaise tätä ongelmaa.

Computers are essential gadgets in modern building automation.

Bring your social media with you to the supermarket or to the mall. Mobile social media could be used to get connected with people near to you in a town. I've plenty of Twitter, Facebook, Qaiku, Flickr, Ning and Friendfeed friends I've never seen in real life. What about using social media as a way to connect with them IRL?

The Future Store don't need to operate with in four walls anymore. Paul Swansen said early on when we started the FSC Basecamp that the store and supermarket hasn't changed in fifty years.

In other discussions we've also discussed the possibility of using signage in combination with mobile phones and let clients and sale clerks communicate product information, brand information, technical advice, or lifestyle messages to outlets in different locations in the country or globally.

The showroom becomes a newsroom that broadcasts the sales talk to a much larger audience.

How Dynamic is Store Design?

We've new technology but so far the cash register has been changed from mechanical to electronic points of sales. The barcode reader makes it easier to "type" the price and product code into the cash register. Computers have made inventory management easier.

But what has happened to the sales process? Self services has been around for a long time.

There is some talk about sales automation, but the vending machine is over one hundred years old technology.

When do we learn to use modern computer technology, internet streaming, social media, and open collaboration? Will it happen 2200?

Sales automation and vending machines

According to wikipedia, In some countries, merchants may sell alcoholic beverages such as beer through vending machines, while other countries do not allow this practice (usually because of dram shop laws). The first modern coin-operated vending machines were introduced in London, England in the early 1880s, dispensing post cards. The first vending machine in the U.S. was built in

1888 by the Thomas Adams Gum Company, selling gum on train platforms. The idea of adding simple games to these machines as a further incentive to buy came in 1897 when the Pulver Manufacturing Company added small figures which would move around whenever somebody bought some gum from their machines.

This simple idea spawned a whole new type of mechanical device known as the "trade stimulators". The birth of slot machines and pinball is ultimately rooted in these early devices.

Interactive Sales Communication

How about the sales and decision process. Sales people still talk to single clients in a store. New technology would easily let them make product presentations to hundreds or even thousands at the same time. All this could happen in the traditional shop environment.

We've the theater of show-room for expanded, dynamic, and interactive digital selling available but nobody really uses the technology to build extended customer bases.

Sales people still demonstrate a computer or car to an individual or at most to a couple or a family. They could easily start to use their demo-park for extended product presentations and take them to other real-life application areas in the store.

The same goes for thousands of other products. We could change the store to an effective newsroom with continuous interactive broadcasting reaching out to clients that haven't stepped inside the store.

Extended shopping environment

Traditional advertising can be replaced by digital storytelling. Customers could be a part of the communication process and at least the FAQ dialog.

The Future Store and Showroom can be transformed to a communication center where a part of the branding is done by the clients. Why no extend the customer relationship to the entire product life span? Customer service operations could also be opened to show how complaints are handled or happy clients are continuing to use a product or service.

PS: I try to write a radically new script for what could happen in the Future Store and Showroom. Trade Stimulators and Community Managers might have an ever increasing role if we understand how to implement these activities to the traditional store.

We have a number of new things going on in the field of Future Store Concept. Ask, if you like to know about the details.

Tervetuloa Seuloon: 12.02.2008, 12:42

Tule mukaan muokkaamaan uutta Seulo-palvelua asiakasta parhaiten palvelevaan muotoon!

Seulo-palvelun tavoitteena on uudenlainen toimiva ja taloudellinen kodin ostosten tilaus- ja toimituspalvelu. Palvelun avulla voi vaikka kodin ruokaostokset tilata kätevästi kaupasta suoraan kotiovelle tai muuhun asiakkaan toivomaan paikkaan.

Seulo-palveluun on tarkoitus liittää myös lisäpalveluita, kuten apteekki-, kirjasto- ja pesulapalvelut. Apteekin tuotteet, kirjastokirjat ja puhdas pyykki voidaan tuoda kotiin samalla kertaa ruokaostosten kanssa. Tyhjien kuljetuslaatikoiden mukana voi kierrätykseen menevän pientavaran jättää palautettavaksi. Suunnitteilla olevaa ovelta-ovelle kimppataksipalvelua käyttäen esimerkiksi lapset voivat kulkea harrastuksiinsa ja vanhukset asioimaan.

Seulo-palvelun testivaihe on käynnistynyt Espoon lähiöissä marraskuussa 2007. Tämän vuoden aikana testikäyttöä laajennetaan muualle pääkaupunkiseudulle. Maaseudulla Seulo-palvelun testikäyttöä on suunniteltu käynnistettäväksi aluksi Keski-Pohjanmaalla.

Seulo-palvelun taustalla on Seulo-hanke, jonka mahdollistajina on joukko yrityksiä ja kuntia. Hankkeen tavoitteena on kehittää uusi ja mahdollisimman asiakaskeskeinen palvelumalli Seulo, jota kuvastaa luonnehdinta kodin logistinen avustaja ja kaupan ja muiden palveluiden neutraali kumppani.

Seulo palvelee

* Kotitalouksille Seulo-palvelu on kevyt ja vaivaton tapa hoitaa arjen rutiinit. Aikaa vapautuu yhdessäoloon ja itselle tärkeisiin asioihin
* Kaupan yrityksille Seulo tarjoaa mahdollisuuden palvella asiakasta entistäkin monipuolisemmin
* Lähituottajille Seulo toimii kanavana tuottajan ja kuluttajan välillä, sekä tuo uusia ratkaisumalleja logistisiin kysymyksiin
* Seulon tavoitteena on edistää myös kunnallisten palveluiden saavutettavuutta sekä vähentää liikennetarvetta
* Seulo-palvelun testikäytön tutkimuksellinen seuranta tarjoaa tietoa nettikaupan vaikutuksista teollisuuden toimitusprosesseihin
* Yhteisöllinen Seulo yhdistää palveluita ja vastaa alueen eri tahojen kuljetustarpeisiin

Tule mukaan Seulo-hankkeeseen! Ota yhteyttä Seulo-ryhmään tämän linkin kautta.
