Shopping Innovator Shortlisted For BIG Award

Shopitize selected as semi-finalist for the Cisco British Innovation Gateway (BIG) Awards.

London-based start up Shopitize is delighted to announce that it has been selected as a semi-finalist in the Cisco BIG Awards. 

Shopitize brings a fresh and unique perspective to the world of shopping and aims to link consumers directly with brands for the first time.

Shopitize users utilize a smartphone app to simply snap photos of paper shopping receipts, which are then automatically uploaded to their personal space on Shopitize’s secure, enterprise class servers.

Quite simply, Shopitize turns your Smartphone into your own personal shopping assistant offering the ultimate guide on what you spend and a detailed insight into exactly what we spend it on! 

This unique, new shopping platform gives members free storage, allows upload and recognition of receipts, which, in turn, allows users to see what they have spent and on which goods.  

It will also provide you with automatically generated smart shopping lists based on your receipt data, so you never forget the essentials - or waste money on buying things you don’t really need. Shopitize will also be connecting users with their favourite brands as the platform evolves. 

Alexey Andriyanenko, co-founder and director, explains: “Clearly, we are delighted to be shortlisted for this prestigious Cisco award, which recognizes the impact of our compelling and disruptive web technology and smartphone apps. The world of shopping is changing and Shopitize is focused on bringing brands and consumers together in the shortest timeframe.” 

A spokesperson for the Cisco Big Awards said: “The BIG Awards have been set up to attract high-potential technology start-ups that are seeking investment and support to accelerate their development. For the successful entrants there’ll be access to the full array of Cisco capabilities from technology to business development, plus potential investment and partnering opportunities in the future.”
