The Click & Collect by Proximis research programs once again win the support of Oseo Innovation
While Proximis already offers the most advanced Click & Collect technology on the market, its innovation programs aim to respond to the main issue of the Web to Store: how to estimate the real impact of digital on sales at the store ? This point is a major element for understanding and mastering the ROPO phenomenon, since it gives retailers and brands the ability to understand more precisely the impact of influenced sales on their points of sale and reseller partners.
“Our first years of R&D on Click & Collect mainly dealt with issues of volume management and scaling up, integration into existing systems as well as in-store reservation processing processes. Our efforts for this 3rd generation of software are focused around the topics of influencing sales traceability, increasing conversion and reducing the no-show rate. The fact that Oseo chose our dossier once again confirms the relevance of our research program. »Emphasizes Philip Bianchi, co-founder of Proximis.
