Mobile Checkout is an easy-to-use, white labeled shopping app that merchants can offer to their customers. With this app in hand, customers shop as usual, but scan items as they are placed in the cart. Once the shopping trip is complete, the consumer simply pushes a ‘check out’ button, and pays via their smartphone, credit/debit card, or Apple Pay.

The expansion of FutureProof Retail into the Canadian market begins with Founder Di Di Chan headlining Canadian Grocer’s Thought Starters conference June 8, in Toronto. The conference’s theme, Grocery 2020, is a forum for industry-leaders to divulge what disruptive trends, innovative technologies and new business models the industry will face in the next five years, and how retailers can stay competitive with a clear plan of action for the future.

FutureProof has experienced rapid success in the American grocery market, and is currently in discussions with numerous large-scale US retailers. Canada was a natural next step, and FutureProof is conducting meetings with many large chain and independent retailers, in an effort to bring their Mobile Checkout technology to Canadian shoppers in Q3, 2016.

“Canadian’s are well known as early technology-adopters, so the decision to bring Mobile Checkout to Canada was an easy one,” says Di Di Chan, FPR Founder and President. “It’s not so much a question of ‘when’ mobile checkout technology will take over the retail space, but who will be the early adopters that rise above the competition,” she finished.
