Ubamarket launching in UK

Ubamarket launching in UK
Tuesday March 20 2018

Shopping app Ubamarket is launching in Budgens stores across three counties after a successful trial phase

The app locates all goods on a shopping list, facilitates in-app payment and removes the requirement to queue or unload items, while giving shoppers real-time automation of their loyalty points and personalised store-offers with each purchase without the need to search for points cards at the checkout. 

In its following phase, Ubamarket – which is launching in Gloucestershire, Worcestershire and Warwickshire with London and Manchester to follow - will also enable shoppers to locate an entire shop according to dietary or allergy requirements.  

Milestone event 

Due for national roll-out in association with leading payment solutions supplier HTEC, the app has been developed to launch across HTEC’s extensive group of UK stores in 2018. 

Here’s how it works: 
Step 1 – Input your shopping list into the Ubamarket app (including any personalised offers in one tap)
Step 2 – Enter the supermarket and the app will rearrange your shopping list as the items are located in store
Step 3 – The app automatically tracks and updates your loyalty points as per your last shop
Step 4 – Using the app’s scanner, scan item barcodes – including variable barcodes on weighted products – as you go, keeping track of your spend
Step 4 – No queues, simply tap your smartphone on a payment point without the need to unload items to a conveyor belt and re-scan purchases

CEO and Founder of Ubamarket, Will Broome said: “The launch is a milestone event for Ubamarket, and one we’re incredibly proud of. Over the past two and a half years, a huge amount of work has gone into ensuring the solution is a perfect fit for a shopping experience entirely centred around convenience, putting the consumer truly in control for the first time!”
