Mi9 Retail (Mi9), the leading provider of omnichannel retail solutions, is pleased to announce the launch of its new digital commerce brand, ThryveAI.
Mi9, a pioneer in grocery e-commerce, helped grocers create their first digital storefronts when online grocery was a novelty. As the underlying technology became more sophisticated, consumers realized the convenience of shopping online and the adoption of grocery e-commerce steadily increased, albeit slowly. Mi9 was determined to significantly improve the technology to support far greater online adoption and started building the ThryveAI platform.
Over the past few months, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced many consumers to become dependent on shopping online and grocers have seen their online businesses skyrocket. For online shoppers, the digital storefront is now more important than the physical storefront. “Gartner expects that by 2021, organizations with robust, scalable digital commerce will outperform noncommerce organizations by 30 percentage points in sales growth. They will do this by better using digital channels during these unprecedented times of social distancing and isolation.”
“ThryveAI was purpose-built to create a seamless, unified shopping experience for grocery customers across the digital and physical storefronts,” said Neil Moses, Mi9 Retail CEO. “The cutting-edge technology and innovation that we have built will help our customers thrive in the digital economy. We want to reinforce our commitment to the grocery industry by giving this brand a unique identity while we also preserve the trust and corporate identity we’ve built in the traditional retail market as ‘Mi9 Retail'”.
