So who is Bilal Soylu ?
Bilal Soylu of XcooBee talks to Pramod in Hitechies Podcast where he explains how their technology is set to change the in-store purchase experience through no contact purchasing straight from your phone for a safer retail experience.
His team pivoted from privacy tools to creating a whole new shopping experience as part of COVID response.
Safety is a large concern for shoppers. Only 30% feel truly comfortable returning to retail stores according to a recent Qubit study. Thus, the current retail store designs that emerged around the time of the factory and industrial revolution are also in question.
Moreover, shoppers like self-checkouts. If given the chance, they will use a self-checkout kiosk more than 40% of the time. However, today’s self-checkouts rely on the old store models where everyone is expected to congregate in certain areas and use shared equipment.
At XcooBee we re-imagined what a store could look like where checkout is anywhere in-store, where assistance is only a tap away, where shoppers do not have to congregate in lines or near kiosks and there is no unnecessary touching of equipment.
The result is not only a safer, faster and more convenient self-checkout experience, but also a more efficient operating paradigm for retail.
XcooBee has come up with a new retail experience that blends online behaviors and in-store shopping together. Consumers can use XcooBee without accounts or apps and have options to get personalized shopping assistance, which, in turn, can improve retail revenue. That is not all, we also added 3rd party shopping, approvals, recommendations engine and much more… all to help you drive more traffic to your store and keep your customers engaged.
