We own a popular retail store in Seattle, were we continuously experiment with a vast array of technologies, measuring their impact on customer experience and sales.
AMAZON-PROOF RETAIL: Hointer merges digital and physical.
IoT devices, etags, smartphones, tablets and in-store sensors power our smart showroom. Uber-efficient microwarehouse capable of locating and retrieving items in under 30 seconds, occupying a fraction of traditional warehouse footprint, powers our backroom.
Most of our experiments fail to deliver benefits, but a few work surprisingly well and we turn those into scalable, inexpensive solutions for our clients.
Digging though racks and piles is no fun and finding your size could be tricky. Keeping displays clean is a time-consuming nightmare for associates.
Explore, click and pick, no piles, no clutter. Customers can now fully explore the collection and experience the product.
Selecting and lugging items could be a chore.
Select your look in seconds, mix and match items you want to try on with ease.
Need a larger size?
Get items delivered to your fitting room with a Whoosh sound in under 30 seconds. Let us also pick matching items for you to try on.
This homemade skit is a high-school project, filmed and directed by founder’s daughter, Caroline Shouraboura. This goofy video showcases Hointer's mobile OmniCart™ with the Whoosh Fitting Room, enabled by a cloud-based Micro-Warehouse™ back-end. Our technology can be customized and stitched together in many different ways, delivering a memorable customer experience and making stores cheaper to operate.
