Grocery retail in Croatia is in for a big surprise, as we have just signed a strategic agreement with Masterplan regarding the distribution and management of Tokinomo robotic in-store marketing campaigns requested by regional FMCG brands.
There was a serious need for innovation in this industry sector, but the pandemic context made the adoption of technology a priority for retailers and FMCG brands. The consumer behavior, legal restrictions and safety regulations cast a shadow on some traditional forms of in-store marketing techniques such as sampling campaigns or hostesses and promoters, thus leaving room for innovative and engaging solutions to deliver change.
Snježana Hađina, CEO of Masterplan says:
“I’ve been working in the retail marketing industry for a while and I’ve seen many supposed innovations, but when I first discovered Tokinomo I knew this was something else. I've noticed this reaction from every client we’ve shown it to. It is unique and innovative from so many points of view: engaging, safe, fun, and scalable. But above everything else, it is highly efficient. We’re looking at a product that besides creating brand awareness and customer engagement, tops everything off with an average of 200% increase in sales. That’s when it really gets your attention.“
Tokinomo shelf advertising robots use sensor technology to detect shoppers' presence and a unique combination of sound, motion, and light to make products pop out of the shelf and speak to the customers. Other benefits include:
- High shopping engagement and increased product visibility in store
- +200% sales increase on average without price cuts
- Brand awareness and customer loyalty
- Cloud-based campaign management platform
- Real-time analytics and custom reports
- Custom-made battery
Ionut Vlad, CEO of Tokinomo:
“I am happy to welcome Masterplan to our select network of partners and see another Tokinomo pin on the world map. The beginning of this collaboration is already very promising and I’m sure that Masterplan’s commitment and our continuous work to improve Tokinomo and add even more technical features will be mirrored in our success on the Croatian market. Thanks for joining our team and making real innovation available to your clients!”
