1-2-1 Video Shopping Platform ConferWith Wins Walgreens Boots Brand Challenge

London, 11 July 2022: ConferWith have won the Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) 20K PITCH//IT brief at this year’s MAD//Fest. This innovation challenge was set to discover new ways to reach consumers with personalised healthcare, and WBA chose ConferWith’s one-to-one live online video shopping platform for a trial in their outlets.

ConferWith is a video shopping platform giving retailers a better way to connect with customers. In real-time, retailers can address concerns, provide higher levels of customer service, and offer unique and immersive experiences. The fully branded shopping platform lets retailers share product images, video demos and more. ConferWith is currently part of the shopping experience with several major brands, including Halfords, Snug, and Hughes.

Personalised healthcare services solution

ConferWith entered WBA’s £20k PITCH//IT at MAD//Fest with a pitch for how Boots can boost one-to-one engagement. WBA was looking to leverage technology and deliver more personalised healthcare services to customers, and their involvement with MAD//Fest opened the company up to pitches from innovative firms that help them connect customers with stores, better understand needs, and customise products and services. 

The judges selected ConferWith as the best solution for the challenge facing Boots. In the current market, they understand the need to leverage technology that can deliver more personalised healthcare to customers, and chose ConferWith as a tool that helps the business better understand the needs of customers, offer the chance to customise products and services, and connect consumers to Boots stores.
