Customers can use the store finder app by start-up company baoo to compare their shopping lists with the on-site inventories of retailers and to display the optimum shopping routes. The app service can be integrated in the GEBIT Retail Platform where retailers can use it to display real-time inventories and prices and send targeted promotions to walk-in customers.
Connected retail concepts must be considered from a holistic perspective. To do so, baoo adopts the app users’ point of view, providing them with the option to compare their shopping lists with on-site inventories of retailers while also displaying the optimum shopping route for them. Customers who use the GEBIT Retail Platform now have the option to communicate their real-time inventories and item prices in the app in addition to creating targeted campaigns and promotions for these walk-in customers.
„The baoo app provides customers with the easiest way to shop at nearby retailers. No matter if it’s checking availability, making a Click&Collect order, or delivery in just a few hours – all of the services are gathered together in one marketplace. The partnership with GEBIT Solutions has enabled us to create an uncomplicated way for retailers to become part of the baoo marketplace and to reach the next generation of customers – Generation Convenience!“ Mirco Meyer, CEO, baoo Technologies GmbH
The GEBIT Retail Platform makes it possible to connect all of the touchpoints, which guarantees a consistent shopping experience. Because this platform is based on a modular approach, retailers remain independent of specific manufacturers and can use a “best of breed” strategy to select the right solutions. In this way, the product portfolio of GEBIT Solutions and their partners forms a foundation for implementing contemporary, connected retail solutions. Starting now, this also includes baoo’s solution, a store finder app which generates a touchpoint directly on the customer’s smartphone.
“Our partnership with baoo demonstrates once again the flexibility of the GEBIT Retail Platform with regard to the integration of innovative solutions. The store finder app by baoo is a welcome change in perspective here – to the customer’s point of view.” Jürgen Borchert, Business Development, GEBIT Solutions GmbH
