BoodsKapper Retail bot

Boodskapper

This is our service for the retail industry and is primarily delivered through Facebook Messenger.  Consumers are able to send a picture of an item and ask if the retailer carries the item. The software is able to look up a retailer's catalog and answer the question.  Two-minute simulation here best explains the solution: http://www.boodskapper.com/#!retail/jjvu4 In this simulation, retailer has no prior record of the customer. Customer starts an organic conversation from Messenger, just as people do in life. BoodsKapper assists the customer to locate an article at the store. The customer picks up the conversation thread several months after the purchase and enquires about a variant of the item purchased. An organic conversation ensues and a purchase is made.is Deep reporting:   We would argue that information gold for the retailer are the conversations that your customers had with you through various channels. Our AI algorithms automatically find the meaning of the written text and use that to make the conversational response. As the meaning of conversations is analyzed and documented in real time, it is possible for us to enhance traditional reporting with this information. +MORE

Customer Demographics Analysis

DoorStat

DoorStat sets up proprietary sensors at pedestrian doorways or points of interest where the technology automatically analyzes foot traffic & associated demographic info for attendees through video-based, proprietary software. The software, working in real-time, will collect, analyze, and report on customer demographic information, including the gender, age, ethnicity, and mood of each customer. Because customers are passively analyzed, DoorStat collects information on more customers than would be possible through surveys, other forms of technology, or high-overhead initiatives. DoorStat data helps retailers improve customer experience, optimize staffing/operations, validate marketing efforts, identify customer/product correlations, & predict future behavior. Example Insight: between 1-4pm on June 1, location xyz had 523 customers, of which 311 were female; of those females, 36.72% were between 35-44 years old; within that age demographic, 29% were Hispanic. +MORE

Pirc

Pirc

Pirc is reinventing one of the most important, if not the most important, pre-shop experiences for consumers of household/grocery goods – the weekly sales circular ($15B spend, 290B prints/yr). With 95% of all US commerce transactions occurring in-store, and the weekly circular driving a core % of those transactions, the circular has unbelievably received little to no real innovation – until now. While digital circulars are not new, Pirc is uniquely positioned to personalize and aggregate multi-store circulars and coupons, and ultimately create a Big Data brand engagement and promotion platform that scales. Today, Pirc delivers to consumers a weekly “Pircular”, or personalized circular, full of all the in-store weekly sales and coupons they actually want. At scale, we will have a database of consumers and their favorite brands which will give us a platform on which to build a more efficient, innovative marketing channel; also helping to displace the 70% of total marketing budget retailers spend on circulars today. We plan to monetize this service at scale primarily via an AdWords-type model, starting with native ad placements by brands and retailers. +MORE

FoodLoop System

FoodLoop Inc.

FoodLoop provides automated, location based, real time marketing of your in-store discounts. Marking down perishables that are overstocked or reaching their best before end has been common practice for decades. Despite this, on average 53 Kg of food items per day per store, still ends up as write-offs and waste,which could have been avoided if it was communicated in time to the right customer. This common practice has remained stagnant despite technological advances. Retailers willing to change, are able to receive large returns. We at FoodLoop are here to facilitate that. We set out to create an efficient way to market goods in danger of not being sold within their shelf-life. Now, with FoodLoop, mobile customers can explore all your discounted products and services and quickly plan their meals with ease. With personalized offers, all streamlined to the palm of our hands, you'll be driving more businesses to your stores. What's more, they'll be proud to spend! They'll know, they're reducing the CO2 footprint. The FoodLoop system builds on the increased adoption of connected devices like smartphones: On average two thirds of people in an industrialized country own a smartphone. More than half of these users, check shopping options on their smartphones before making purchase decisions. So why not take the information of individual store discounts and clearance sales beyond the door and into the customers’ pocket? The FoodLoop System is available to all retailers and wholesalers. The system has also been developed to support the new GS1 DataBar; the new barcode standard which can incorporate best-before-date information on a product level. So as retailers upgrade to the GS1 DataBar, they'll be happy to receive seamless integration (and further improved results like cutting labour hours) with the FoodLoop system. +MORE
