A year after its initial roll-out, we are excited to announce that the next iteration of Ubamarket – the revolutionary retail app – has arrived. Following a successful trial in Warner’s Budgens’ flagship store in Moreton-in-Marsh, the same chain of supermarkets has jumped on the chance to implement our app in its other stores across four UK counties.
In the past 12 months Ubamarket® has been featured by the Daily Mail, Telegraph, Daily Express, Good Housekeeping, Which?, the BBC, and Russia Today, not to mention the fact that we were dubbed “the most sophisticated supermarket app” by none other than The Grocer magazine.
Created amid research showing that a staggering 66% of UK shoppers would potentially stop going to the UK’s 10,308 supermarkets due to a poor experience, Ubamarket® enables consumers to locate all the items on their shopping list, pay in-app and removes the need for tiresome queues. What’s more, Ubamarket® shoppers receive full automation of their loyalty points with each purchase, without the need to search for loyalty cards at the checkout, as well as receiving personalised offers direct to their phone in real-time. To see us in action, watch Ubamarket® triumph in a real-life trial on BBC One’s Supermarket Secrets.
The new white-label iteration of the app – Ubamarket 2.0, as we call it here at HQ – enables retailers to effortlessly adapt our industry-leading mobile solution as per their own company’s branding. And in yet more exciting news, we are delighted to reveal that in its next phase Ubamarket® will enable users to locate an entire shop according to dietary or allergy requirements!
Reflecting on the success of Ubamarket’s initial roll-out in his flagship store, Guy Warner, MD of Warner’s Budgens, commented on today’s news: “I’m delighted to be the first store in the world to offer a completely white-labelled version of Ubamarket® to our customers. I feel that the revolutionary ‘Taste Club’ app will effectively bridge the gap between online convenience and the in-store experience that Warner’s Budgens shoppers enjoy.
We’ve already seen fantastic results in our Moreton store and are now excited to offer it to all Warner’s Budgens customers .”We can’t wait to bring you more news of Ubamarket’s immediate roll-out across more of the UK, while we will also keep you up-to-date with even more exciting developments that we have in the pipeline… Watch this space everyone – the retail revolution is well and truly underway!
