FutureProof Retail Goes Global: First Line-Free Mobile Checkout to Debut at EuroShop

FutureProof's mobile platform radically improves the in-store shopping experience for customers: grab items, scan with the app, walk out.

Before the announcement of Amazon Go, California Fresh Market was the first store in the U.S. to open with FutureProof Retail’s line-free mobile checkout, “This is the first one I've come across that actually works," said Co-Owner of California Fresh Market, Alfred Holzheu. "I think over time it will be how brick-and-mortar stores will be able to compete against online shopping which is being a challenge for all of us.” 

FutureProof’s mobile platform is unique because it is the only line-free mobile checkout solution that’s already in grocery stores, office spaces, and fashion stores. “Our technology has a lot of advantages built right into the architecture,” FutureProof CEO William Hogben said. “It’s the only system that can combine private white-label and universal coverage, meaning retailers don’t need to choose between owning their customer relationships and leveraging a pre-existing install base - they can do both.”

FutureProof’s business model is also unique in the world of retail technologies. "We want to remove every pain point associated with trying a new technology platform,” FutureProof President Di Di Chan said,  “We offer risk-free month to month contracts without the typical technology lock-ins or hefty upfront investments that merchants are used to. We succeed when our merchants succeed.” 

FutureProof will be demonstrating their solution to retailers and partners at EuroShop, March 5-9th, with their global scales partner Bizerba at Hall 6 / E58. Interested retailers, partners and press are advised to arrange their demonstration and meeting in advance by contacting euroshop2017@futureproofretail.com
