This week has been a big one for Ubamarket. While we may have revealed our beautiful new retail app to the world last month, prompting a flurry of fantastic pieces of media coverage, it was only this Monday that saw Ubamarket officially roll out in-store. In the rather idyllic setting of Moreton-in-Marsh in the Cotswolds there resides a Warner’s Budgens store where lucky shoppers can now enjoy the plethora of benefits that Ubamarket has to offer.
To remind you of how it all works: download the iOS app (for free) and type in your shopping list – the minute you enter the Budgens supermarket your list will be rearranged into the order your items are located on the shelves, making the shopping experience quicker and far less stressful. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg; as you walk around the store you can scan each item on your list using your smartphone, tracking how much you’ve spent and making it easier to monitor your budget. Not only that but you don’t have to re-scan every item at the end of your shop, so there’s no need to wait around in mile-long checkout queues. Throw in Automatic LoyaltyTM, which means that loyalty points are automatically amassed as you shop (the clue’s in the name), and you’ve got a whole new way to buy food!
The launch of the product in-store is a huge step for Ubamarket, following years of innovative development work by Will Broome, the Founder and CEO of the app, as well as DMI, a global leader in end-to-end mobility solutions, and HTEC, a leading developer and supplier of payment and loyalty solutions.
But this is just the first stage of a long journey – the retail revolution has just begun! Over the coming weeks, months and years you can expect to see Ubamarket pop up in supermarkets and convenience stores across the UK and beyond. Needless to say, we will be updating you every step of the way.
