Leading the Future of RETAIL
RETAIL × AI
What do you get when you combine a wise animal with a new intelligence?
Artificial Intelligence + OWL = AWL
Like the creature, AWL solutions watch over brick and mortar shops. They complement our eyes and brains, working together with people to improve in-house productivity, raise efficiency, and create added value
As AI evolves, so has the way we work.
Our exploration in forming leading AI solutions has led us to a different perspective, one where the people who work day in and day out in brick and mortar stores are not viewed as a “cost”, but rather a valuable asset. Our goal, is to always be on the look out for the right combination of STORE × PEOPLE × TECHNOLOGY and continue to create new value throughout our lifetime.
