Hystory & Next steps

back in 2018

How can we help small businesses

The idea to build something to support the SMEs local businesses came up. The discussion involved local shops from 3 different EU countries. The idea was to use the proximity and deliver tailored campaigns to the customers based on their preferences

back in 2018

March 2020

Covid19 has arrived

We started thinking about what we could have done to help small businesses get back up after the crisis

Apr 2020

EUvsVirus hackathon

The EUvsVirus hackathon brought back the opportunity of trying to launch Robin to save SMEs lives through a complete set of new functionalities

The solution’s impact to the crisis

  • In Italy we have seen in the last months all the shops, with the exception of food shops, being completely closed. What we have been through so far it is just the phase 1 of the crisis. The government is already planning the next phases 2, 3 and nobody knows how many more.
  • In other countries in EU the same approach has been taken meaning, for a lot of SMEs, that from one day to the other there was no income at all coming where most likely the expenses flow was still moving, may be not at the same speed, but still there.
  • The Robin platform would have allowed to support those SMEs to not completely shutdown their activities and possibly, in some cases, even to generate new opportunities due to the higher visibility on a wider market.
  • With the platform, for example, a shop, whether is a butchery or an hardware store or even an hairdresser, could have created some promotions to be delivered at home. This would have enabled the SMEs to stay closer to their customers and through the loyalty program, included in the platform, even to care more to the customers with offers tailored for them and maybe special discounts for the loyal customers.
  • What the platform foresee also is the possibility to detect that the same customer has bought from 2 different shops the same day and will therefore offer, if the shops are allowing this, to optimize the delivery having just one person going to the customer. This approach will, form one side, strengthen the sense of community and from the other side will avoid that too many people will be around if not necessary. Furthermore it will eventually also optimize the costs of the delivery.

Next steps

Enhanced Loyalty Program - Direct Payment through the Mobile App - UI Customization for different business types - Coupon Integration & Big Data Mechanism! - Delivery Optimization & Delivery Management
These are the next steps in Robin's development
