At our platform, digital comfort functions such as various filter options or the possibility of sorting the offers according to the distance to the shop of choice search customized for every user.
With the convenient chat function, dealers in the area can be contacted immediately. Buying on-site, on the same day, is just as possible as placing an order. It is also easy to get to know the shops and dealers themselves because all contact information, addresses, opening times, etc., are available with just one click. Watchlists with favorite products and favorite dealers can also be created individually to make shopping a pleasure.
We have created a mobile platform planned to facilitate users to shop at their local ‘brick and mortar' stores or merchants from the comfort of their cars or homes with no need to enter a store for a “contactless” shopping experience.
At the time when brick and mortar merchants set up their in-app storefronts, customers can access merchant stock using the 'curbsidemall' app as well as buy the items they require, all through an extremely easy procedure. With the 'curbsidemall' app, the advantages and possibilities of online shopping can be perfectly supplemented with unique services and advice from local dealers.
In the age of digitization, the retail sector is facing profound changes:
All these changes put pressure on small and medium-sized trading companies in particular, especially, local brick-and-mortar retailers.
Given the almost limitless range and availability of products and services outside of the traditional shopping streets and increasing maturity of products and consumers, there is less and less demand for the space and the added value that expertise and specialization characterize in local specialist shops. After crafts, such as the shoemaker, had to give way to industrial production. Intermediary organizations and trades, such as the local stationary retail trade, now see themselves threatened by the digital transformation. And, it is also evident that the phenomena that have occurred massively on the internet in the last decade are only the beginning of further technological developments.
It is clear that to survive successfully in retail, you have to use the internet and other digital options. However, even though the consulting industry, market research institutes, associations, and the first scientific institutions postulate the importance and initial recommendations for action about digitization, the variables, influencing factors, and their connections are unclear. Depending on the geographic location, industry, and product, access to goods is different.
Different process elements can be digitized for the benefit of the customer. Depending on the industry there can be simple "steps" into the internet. Depending on the industry and goods, human contact and trust are very relevant. Depending on which phase of the decision a consumer is in, they need different types of support. Depending on the size of the city and the proportion of chain stores, it is a different requirement to tackle online forms of cooperation. Depending on the age of the target group, digital applications play a different role in daily use. Depending on the age of the retailers, changes play a different role. The list could be made to continue.
On our platform, you can register as a customer as well as a merchant.
