Wooqer and Sirqul announced a strategic partnership in late August, 2019 to digitally transform the retail in-store experience through smart, connected data-driven experiences. The alliance will focus on leveraging Wooqer’s Retail Platform and Sirqul’s IoT Engagement-as-a-Service (EaaS) Platform with patented location-aware smart devices to drive in-store revenue.
Sirqul’s precise location data and Wooqer’s Retail Application will significantly enhance brick and mortar store experiences by providing never seen before in-store foot traffic intelligence, customer journey mapping, and closed-loop ROI reporting.
Store Intelligence from Sirqul’s IoT EaaS Platform is integrated with Wooqer’s Retail Application to create a ‘closed loop’ approach for in-store execution. The newly combined, “Connected Store Solution” will bring valuable, actionable AI and ML data to retail managers for data-driven decisions based on in-store consumer traffic patterns, behaviors, and purchase decisions.
Sirqul’s technology anonymously monitors guests in-store with future-proof IoT technology that does not require a mobile app or costly cameras. Merging the precise location of people with items and employees will now enable retailers to deliver personalized, engaging experiences and alter behaviors to increase in-store ROI.
“This combined solution delivers valuable store insights in real-time to engage customers and increase store performance with continual optimization,” said Malini Raj, Director – Global Alliances at Wooqer. Wooqer’s ability to integrate with POS systems and other enterprise applications can now be extended into machine centric in-store customer data insights.
