What is it all about? Let’s find out….


  • Concept

    Concept Definition:

    An innovative retailing channel which sits right in between ‘In Store’ and ‘Web’. Taking best of both the channels and simultaneously eliminating redundancies in both of them.

    Concept Workflow:

    Customer walks in the Brick and Mortar Virtual Store carrying their Smart phones which has pre-installed Mobile App. Using the App, Customer scans QR Code of the Product/s to be purchased and adds them to Mobile Phone cart. Through standard Checkout process, Customer can easily pay for the Product/s online and walk out of the Store carrying their Product/s similar to conventional Brick and Mortar Store

    Thought behind:

    Entire Solution and its Workflow is based upon in depth market survey. The survey spanned Tier 1 to Tier 3 cities and covered Retailers and Shoppers alike. What evolved was a Product that truly mitigates critical pain points of Sellers and Buyers.


  • Mobile Solution and Display Technology
