Extending High Street opportunity
Udozi also provides information on stock availability, shop contact details, locations and opening times and allows shoppers to browse items before heading to a store, as well as the opportunity to discover new independent shops through its ‘what’s around me?’ feature.
Nick Darby, Clarks UK programme and change management manager, commented: “We place people at the heart of everything we do and people are increasingly using their favourite mobile services to interact with us.
"This partnership means that people can now use their phones and tablets to search for our stock on-the-go via their popular Udozi app or website, making finding us and the shopping experience even easier, more convenient and more enjoyable.”
