NearSt Secure a Pod on the REPL Innovation Hub at RBTE

We are delighted to announce that the revolutionary location based e-commerce startup NearSt have secured a pod on the REPL Innovation hub at the upcoming RBTE (Retail Business Technology Expo) 2017.

This opportunity was presented to new businesses who have developed innovative products for the retail industry and are looking to gain exposure. We received an overwhelming number of great entries over the last couple of weeks with some ground-breaking, cool technology, but identified NearSt as the next big thing in Retail!

NearSt provide a website and app that allows customers to search and buy products in shops close to where they are, allowing them to collect their products instantly rather than having to wait days for a delivery. All you need to do is select the products you require, the order is then accepted by the store and put aside to be picked up straight away. Additionally, if you don’t fancy walking, NearSt also allows you to have the purchases delivered to you within the hour.

Partner of NearSt Mart Postma said; “We are thrilled to be able to work with REPL and see this as a fantastic opportunity to present our innovations to the retail industry.”

Technology and management solutions providers REPL Group, software and consultancy specialists JDA, business application providers Infor and retail IT and commerce solutions specialists Visma, will also be at stand #145, available to discuss market-leading solutions.

Chris Love, Co-Founder and Chief Business Development Officer

Co-founder and Chief Business Development Officer of REPL Group Chris Love said: “We are looking forward to exhibiting at Europe’s biggest and fastest growing annual retail event. We are confident NearSt will present an exciting solution and look forward to showcasing our innovative products to organisations who are searching for cutting edge technology in order to increase productivity and enhance the customer experience.”
