Retail

Branded experience for people

Using technology to create an exciting, memorable experience for shoppers can turn a retail space into a premium destination, promoting more and longer visits, and higher spend. And it’s a hugely powerful way for bricks-and-mortar stores to fight back against online retailers.

Hutchi’s integrated technology works for boutique stores and international chains, luxury brands and quirky independents. We turn transaction into experience, building an immersive environment to support your brand and build customer loyalty.

Retail

Integrating all the channels

Background audio can unify a place, or delineate contrasting zones. Video walls and multi-screen installations can showcase product, while digital signage can beautifully convey brand values or seasonal promotions. Sophisticated lighting techniques allow you to accentuate features, or create engaging window displays.

That’s just the technology your customers can see and hear. We’ll also design and install secure entry for staff, provide networking and customer Wi-Fi, and implement systems for loyalty cards, occupancy sensors, analytics and more.

Online shopping is more popular in the UK than any other European country, with around 30% of the total retail market now online. 82% of the UK population now does at least part of its shopping online*.

In the face of this, physical stores can fight back with technology and transform the shopping experience into an exciting, fulfilling and immersive experience, where a visit to a retail ‘destination’ is seen as a leisure activity in its own right. Hutchi can make it happen.
