EIT Digital is organising a Hackathon for the retail sector together with its partner Olivetti.
Merchants have hard time to digitalise their shops to create a new customer experience and be ready to answer to new digital needs and behaviours of their customers, in loyalty, mobile payments, customer relations. Current solutions require different devices and non-integrated apps. The majority of merchants have no strong digital and strategical skills to create a full digital transformation strategy for their store, have limited budgets and no clear starting point for their transformation.
Have you ever taken part at a hackathon before?
Come up with concepts, demos and apps which utilise Olivetti’s next gen cash register as digital hub to better manage shops and create unique customer experiences.
Solution domains we are looking for:
- Interaction between shopkeeper and customer: e.g. proximity marketing, loyalty, multichannel communication, gamification, personalised customer service or others
- Innovative payment methods - e.g. mpayment, bluetooth payment or other payment methods
- Shop IoT control - e.g. doors/windows/air conditioning/light control or other controls Digitalisation of internal shop process - e.g. staffing, task assignments, stock management, purchasing or other processes
