PHILADELPHIA -- Retail tech supplier Stuzo has launched an online platform to illustrate how convenience retail could evolve in the future.
The platform catalogs previously released concepts of retail's future, such as its Urban Convenience Center and Suburban Convenience Center. It also includes a new addition, the Fleet & On-Demand concept, which includes a briefing and video explaining how delivery via autonomous fleets might work. Together, these concepts make up the Future Vision Insights Platform, which examines how changes in the market, consumer behavior and technology will converge to transform and disrupt c-stores.
Stuzo assembled a team of research analysts, 3D and 2D designers, 3D animators and product strategists to analyze the fuel retail and convenience industry and how tech and software trends will power business in the immediate and near future. Stuzo’s team has studied a host of topics, from battery capacity to converging retail verticals, to reach the conclusions outlined in the Future Vision Platform.
In addition to research from the Future Vision team, Stuzo also took information gathered from its previous research of convenience retail. The company will add more concepts to the Future Vision Platform through 2019.
Philadelphia-based Stuzo's software and solutions help convenience stores launch or manage mobile payments, mobile loyalty programs, mobile ordering capabilities, programs to increase employee engagement and geo-targeted offers. In an exclusive arrangement with CSP, Stuzo shares its digital ranking of 100 convenience-store chains, measuring their digital presence, including mobile commerce, connected car, website and social media.
