IMMEDIACY AND PROXIMITY, OUR RAISON D’ÊTRE
BRINGING COMMERCE CLOSER TO THE CONSUMER
We were among the first to understand that tomorrow’s consumption patterns would be based on hyper-convenience, time saving and proximity.
Consumers seek to waste as little time as possible in the act of buying. Whether it relates to an online site or a physical point of sale, speed and convenience are the top priorities for young consumers.
Revolutionise local commerce by bringing commerce closer to the citizen-consumer to make their daily lives easier. Our goal: to continuously and further enhance this closeness with our customers.
Today more than ever, we need to innovate, diversify, get closer to our customers, simplify their lives and give them more freedom on their daily course of life.
