AVA Retail .Ai Wins Microsoft's Retail Partner of the Year Award

SEATTLE, July 17, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- AVA retail .Ai, the retail AI company providing cashier-less checkout and a suite of data solutions for brick-and-mortar retailers, today formally announced it has won the 2018 MSUS Partner Award in the Retail category. This announcement is significant because retailers are expected to invest over $25B per year in the digital transformation of retail.

Designed to supplement the Microsoft Partner of the Year program, the MSUS Partner Award focuses on US-specific partner impact and recognizes partners who are making some of the most significant contributions to critical business areas such as Business Applications, and Data and Artificial Intelligence. AVA's SmoothShop frictionless shopping solution for retailers is a leading example of how AI and rich data can inform businesses across store design, marketing, and even supply chain, and provide a quick and convenient shopping experience that delights customers at the same time. AVA retail .Ai conceived frictionless checkout in August 2016 and was the first company to deploy it externally in September 2017, in collaboration with Mastercard in a pilot at the WeWork Honesty market in its San Francisco office.

"We've been working closely with Microsoft since our inception four years ago, collaborating on various products and launching analytics," said CEO at AVA retail .Ai Atul Hirpara. "We're honored to receive this award, and are excited to continue collaborating with Microsoft to resell and test this cashier-less solution with the world's biggest retail chains. Together we are delivering a fun, fast and frictionless shopping experience to all."

In addition to cashierless checkout, AVA retail .Ai has been supplying the world's largest retailers and beloved brands with technologies to help them understand their customers' journeys and in-store behavior. The biggest retailers, supermarkets, office supply stores and coffee houses understand which items their customers spend the most time with, how they travel through their stores, details of customer / product interactions, and which marketing campaigns are most effective, via AVA's technology. AVA retail .Ai has logged more than 30M customer journeys, 750M interactions with specific products on shelves, and over 20M checkouts in four continents, helping retailers convert this data into increased sales and an enhanced shopping experience.
