EuroCIS 2018, the leading trade fair for retail technology, will feature a dedicated presentation area (in hall 9) for start-up companies focusing on the development of state-of-the-art IT systems and solutions in the retail sector – the START-UP HUB. About 10 start-ups will be part of this special area with a booth and also talk about their innovative solutions in the daily forum at the START-UP HUB. EuroCIS will be held at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany from February 27 – March 1, 2018.

One of the START-UP HUB exhibitors will be Infinia Retail e.K. with an iPad cloud based cash system to be used in a store. Its simplicity makes it special. The company promises “no complicated red tape of service staff appointments and no incomprehensible user manuals. You can easily get the entire system going all on your own in four easy steps.”

SO1 GmbH will also be part of the START-UP HUB. Their goal is to revolutionize the retail industry with artificial intelligence designed specifically for the wholesale sector. Simple POS integration allows the SO1 system to train its artificial intelligence with data collected in real time. Each customer can be given a separate profile which is then continually refined over time. The program covers a variety of factors, such as purchases made, preferences, time factors and discounts and on this basis generates the best possible product for each customer.

Another company at the START-UP HUB with a focus on optimal data management will be Beaconinside GmbH with its Proximity Data Management Platform. The platform collects, processes and analyses data from all the available proximity technologies, such as Geofence, Beacon and NFC as well as physical web installations. This allows even more effective smartphone-based customer activation as well as an optimized cross-channel customer experience.
