[Company Profile]

Aiming for unmanned retail stores and better user experience, this company is building a platform that links a real store, automated by robotics, and a micro-sized DC, with the new concept of coming closer to the customer. There are many industrial automation robots for BtoB, but monetizing those technologies as a service in the field of BtoC (for customers) with high standards, in Japan, is a new challenge that most companies have not tackled so far.

This company aims at automating the retail business and creating a platform that enables end-users to have a better purchasing experience.
