What We Do

Digital Transformation

Do you want to become a truly customer obsessed retailer that leverages on today's technologies and consumer behaviour?

We help you understand what to do and how to do it through a review of your business from a customer and tech point of view. Then we get it done with you - transforming your business by guiding or building the actual solutions.

Augmented Reality

We were amongst the first movers with Augmented Reality for retail on behalf of IKEA and Apple. We won several awards and have extensive knowledge of this new technology and how it can be applied commercially.

Due Dilligence

We provide you with perspective on the value of a potential tech-investment you are considering in the retail sector or in the field of Augmented Reality.

We believe

That all companies today (without exceptions) are partly or fully a digital business and we encourage everyone to 'get under the hood' in their own company to truly understand it.

That Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Mobility and Robotics are close to the breaking point on the exponential curve and will fundamentally change our lives and the way we do business.

API-First Strategies easily solve what used to be major hurdles for many company’s transformation.
