Idea

Chatbot is a shopping assistant for customers in offline stores. When in the store it suggests outfits with the product range in the store, collects customer's purchases and later sends push-notifications with recommendations of outfits with previous purchases and new collection of the brand.

Current Status

By current moment we've finished 3 pilots with international fashion brands, the 4th is in process, released beta version of the product and ready to go on the market with one of the partners.

Market

Our customers: international apparel retail chains, worldwide.
Our users: men and women of 16-45; active users of smartphones and other gadgets with the Internet connection.
We plan to spread our product in Russian (Volume - $US 36,68 bn), Europe ( Volume - $US 435 bn) and USA (Volume - $US 334 bn).
CAGR of our market is 7,8%.

Problem or Opportunity

Problems that we help retailers to solve:
- lower sales in brick-and-mortar stores;
- decrease of customers’ traffic;
- obsolescence of brand’s audience;
- need for enriching customer experience;
- poorly developed omni-channel.
There is a dramatic decrease of customers' traffic in break-and-mortar stores. According to PwC report in 2017, 58% asked retailers said that there is a real threat of shutting down of their stores. During 2017 2000 stores in the USA were shut down.
According to vc.ru, 50% of russian fashion retailers have a goal to activate omni-channel and to enrich customer experience in their stores by the end of 2019.
