Half a Million Shoppers Have Now Shopped At a Zippin-Powered Store
With 50 Stores Launched Worldwide, Zippin Hits Key Milestones in Adoption of Checkout-free Technology
Zippin, the leading provider of checkout-free technology, announced that it has reached a key milestone having served over half a million shoppers in one of its 50 Zippin-powered stores. Zippin calculates that it has saved consumers over 83,000 hours to-date, conservatively estimating that frictionless retail reduces the average shopping trip by 10 minutes.
As our desire for more and more frictionless experiences continues to grow, Zippin plans to scale rollout of its technology with key partners around the globe, improving the overall retail experience, and establishing its position as the top checkout-free platform provider.
“Retailers are under immense pressure to deliver fast, frictionless experiences for consumers, and this is especially true in high-traffic venues where time is limited,” said Krishna Motukuri, CEO and co-founder of Zippin. “We recognize that speed can’t come at the expense of accuracy. With each new store launch, Zippin’s AI improves its ability to provide the best experience for both retailers and shoppers, who are fast coming to expect this level of convenience. That’s why it’s so important that we continue to scale, quickly.”
How It Works – Zippin’s Superior Technology
With a simple tap of a credit card to enter the store, shoppers pick what they need and exit, without the hassle and wasted time of waiting in line. Zippin uses superior multi-modal AI-powered technology to deliver the most accurate solution to its partners. Even in locations with high foot traffic, such as stadiums and venues that offer a complex selection of products, Zippin’s AI software automatically tracks what items are selected by which person, and whether they are put back, or leave with the shopper.
