Consumers shopping at offline retailers today strive for the same enhanced experience they are accustomed to when shopping online. FPR brings this to them through convenience features such as instant checkout and order ahead, and personalization features such as relevant recommendations, coupons and reviews.
No! Despite the convenience of online shopping, a majority of shoppers still prefer to go “out” and shop at offline retailers. That’s why online giants Amazon and Alibaba are coming offline to compete for more business. Our mission is to bring the convenience and personalization of online shopping offline in an affordable and customizable way for brick-and-mortar retailers.
We’ve combined a strong checkout foundation with the most customizable and connectable mobile shopping platform in the market.
Our platform features Mobile Self-Checkout & Line Free Order Ahead. We offer both a Universal App that’s ready to use for multiple retailers on one platform and a White Label option. For White Label clients, we can also do custom Banner app projects. To learn more, sign up here for a free demo.
We have a multi-tiered loss prevention system that includes:
Our loss prevention system is customizable and functions without expensive hardware. Stores can modulate security checks based on the need using software-defined parameters. Before using the app, shoppers provide identity information that exponentially decreases the risk that deliberate thieves will use the app to perpetrate crimes. Random bag checks remind all shoppers to be vigilant in paying for every item.
Please see our Loss Prevention Page for more info.
We're the leading solution in terms of capabilities, architecture and flexibility for the retailers. Our combined white label and universal app approach gives retailers the best of both worlds: they can own their customers with white label and obtain access to thousands of potential new customers that have already installed the universal app.
