AI-powered retail store We9go opens to the public in Geylang
Accrelist-owned AI retail store We9go has fully launched after an eight-month trial.
The Geylang Road shop uses AI, facial recognition and radio frequency identification to track inventory, collect data on shopper preferences, facilitate payment processes and recognise product movements.
When it soft launched last October it was open only to invited customers, so as to test and demonstrate its features.
Accrelist says it will now focus on strengthening AI solutions and facial-verification services.
“The company intends to move beyond smart retail-technology solutions,” said Terence Tea Yeok Kian, Accrelist’s executive chairman and MD.
“We aim to offer a wider range of smart-and-secure cloud-based solutions as a systems integrator through its collaboration with technology companies to broaden the group’s revenue stream.”
After its full launch, the 24/7 We9go store has an AI-powered robot that greets shoppers and assists them with product information and availability.
