2017 is going to be a big year for retail – it’s going to be the year that things get seriously technical. We’ve already had the launch of the Amazon Go concept store, and it looks sure that the coming 12 months will see technology become an increasingly important part of our shopping experiences. And food retail is certainly no exception.
This is great news for you because it will make things faster, smarter and easier. For retailers this will mean that keeping up-to-date on all the latest tech trends is going to be extremely important when it comes to keeping you happy.
Of course, Ubamarket hopes to play a big part in retail’s tech revolution. As a white label solution that can be used in any supermarket and, as The Grocer called us, ‘the most sophisticated supermarket app out there’, we expect 2017 to be the year where you will see many more supermarkets join our ranks.
After all, why wouldn’t they? Since we pulled back the curtain and revealed Ubamarket to the world in the summer of 2016, the response of the press to our new app has been remarkable. And this year has seen more of the same, with the actual BBC coming down to film Ubamarket in action (check it out below). They are going to be looking into the use of technology in the retail industry for their programme ‘Supermarket Secrets’ and naturally they gave us a call. So make sure to keep an eye out for us on Prime time TV this April! If that’s not a great start to the year, we don’t know what is!
