What Kind of Stores would Ubamarket Suit?

This is a blog from Will Broome, Founder & CEO, Ubamarket Ltd.

Ubamarket is an uber-useful and fantastically simple retail app which helps supermarket customers shop faster, and smarter. It puts the power back into the hands of the consumer and promises to breathe life back into the high street. After all, 71% of Brits who buy food online have stated they are frustrated by the experience, so there remains a great opportunity for good, old fashioned bricks-and-mortar shops to win over new customers.

From a store’s perspective, Ubamarket  is important because it eases and enhances their customers’ experience and, as a result, breeds loyalty. With its very low installation cost, easy upkeep and minimal ongoing license fees, Ubamarket  is available to almost any store, anywhere in the world. The convenience market is perfect for Ubamarket as it offers a unique opportunity for these shops to differentiate themselves from their competitors, enabling smaller stores to fight for their position in an eco-system that is largely dominated by the ‘big four’ supermarkets.

On the other hand, as the market continues to rapidly move towards regular convenience shops as opposed to large weekly shops, the big supermarkets could use Ubamarket  to arrest this decline and turn things back around. This is because, as our own independent study revealed, the biggest gripes people have about supermarket shopping is that there are long queues (cited as an issue by 35% of the 2,000 UK adults surveyed) and it is a struggle to find items (15%). Ubamarket empowers the retailer to tackle these problems head on.

Crucially though, it’s not all about the grocery market. Ubamarket makes the in-store experience faster, more efficient, better value, more productive, and hassle free!  Wholesalers such as Costco, for example, would benefit enormously, as would large hardware stores like B&Q, and furniture stores such as IKEA. This is because navigation, automatic loyalty, real-time personalised offers and instant checkout would turn an often frustrating trip to these giant stores into the perfect hybrid experience, bridging the gap between online and in-store retail, thereby helping to increase sales and customer satisfaction.

Another major strength of Ubamarket is that it will tell you everything you need to know about your customers. The app tracks ‘behaviour patterns’ as opposed to ‘purchase patterns’ for the very first time, meaning you get unparalleled insight into how your customers are shopping in your store! You’ve heard about ‘big data’ but this really is ‘HUGE data’ on every level.

Ubamarket  is designed to span sectors and can be entirely white labelled to your brand if you would like it to be. What’s more, Ubamarket can be integrated quickly and affordably into any store, anywhere in the world.

If you are an independent store, part of a franchise or even a large multi-national retailer then please do come and have a look at Ubamarket  – we’d be delighted to talk to you about how we can work with you to ensure your customer base is fully engaged and supremely loyal!

Ubamarket. Shop Smarter.
