Join the $70 billion store-of-the-future opportunity: Become a partner

Ohad Gross

Director of Global Partnerships

23 November 2023

Recently, I had a conversation with one of our partners that struck a chord with me. He said:

“I cannot predict the future of computer vision-powered store automation, but as a technology provider in the retail sector, I cannot afford not to be part of this revolution. If there’s a chance this becomes the standard practice, the urgency to embrace the technology is NOW.”

To me, this statement captures the essence of what we are embarking on as we launch our new partnership program.

Store digitization is valued as a $70 billion opportunity. To give you a glimpse into the scale of this transformation, in 2021, there were around 250 autonomous and hybrid frictionless stores. Now, strategic research firm RBR is predicting the number will reach 12,200 by 2027, representing 91% CAGR. 

Retailers today, especially in the grocery sector, are racing to implement technologies that will help them cut costs, optimize their workforce, implement data-driven operations, offer better shopping experiences, and remain competitive and resilient in the face of tough economic times

As a leading provider of computer vision AI technology for retail, our sights are set on powering the efficient, data-driven future of retail. At Trigo, we transform traditional stores into smart stores and offer frictionless automated checkout and data-driven store operations. Our advanced computer vision technology leverages information from ceiling-mounted cameras and smart shelf sensors to create a real-time 3D model of the store, track shoppers’ journeys, and identify shopper-product interactions to generate their virtual baskets and enable seamless payment.

Beyond delivering a superior customer experience, the Trigo solution enables retailers to leverage computer vision technology to improve operational efficiency through data-powered inventory management to increase product availability and reduce shrinkage. The data our system generates has a direct impact on retailers’ top line: predictive planning, price optimization, planogram compliance, and more.

Introducing our partnership program

Today I’m excited to introduce our new partnership program at Trigo. Our value-added reseller (VAR) partnership program  sets new standards for retail automation and delivers unparalleled value to our VAR partners, their customers, and the entire retail ecosystem. For us, it is simple: we rely on trusted partners to go to market with us and together open up this tremendous market opportunity in their respective markets, worldwide.

Our goal is to nurture strong business relationships with innovative resellers, retailers, and technology experts to realize this incredible opportunity for retail innovation. Our VAR partners leverage our cutting-edge computer vision and retail automation solutions, together with their own retail tech expertise and executive relationships with key decision-makers, to shape the future of shopping and maximize value for their customers.

Trigo partners benefit from a significant financial opportunity. Reselling Trigo’s innovative solutions, including Trigo’s SaaS and its integration into your customers’ software environment, in-store hardware installation, and ongoing support and maintenance, allows you to tap into lucrative revenue streams. As the demand for frictionless checkout and retail automation grows, your organization gains access to a vast market, with retailers eager to invest in seamless customer experiences.

Trigo’s technology provides a distinct competitive advantage, enabling you to offer premium solutions designed to foster long-term partnerships with retailers. As a value-added reseller, you can benefit from recurring income opportunities through maintenance contracts, SaaS subscriptions, and additional professional services.

We are now welcoming strong partners to join us as we bring our revolutionary autonomous store vision to market and transform the global retail sector.
