As we look back at 2020, we'd like to pause for a moment to say thank you for your trust and support on our growth journey.
From telehealth to click-and-collect, Covid-19 was a tipping point for tech adoption at a scale and speed we would never have imagined. We witnessed some of these trends first hand at Pointr.
Hospitals: the patient journey starts at home
Covid-19 accelerated the adoption of digital for healthcare with telehealth, eprescribing and smart wayfinding from home all the way to the care room. Register to our Lunch & Learn with Healthcare experts to find out the path forward for smart hospitals in the context of the Covid-19 crisis.
Safe, smart workplaces are a must-have for 2021
Back in March we launched WorkSafe, a back to work solution for contact tracing and safe occupancy. 9 months and 25+ customers later, WorkSafe is the stepping stone for many smart workplaces towards smart buildings (a market that increased by 15% year on year). As a result, we grew our US team and welcomed new clients and partners. A big hello to Cisco, Comfy, Enlighted, Extreme Networks, Chargifi and many more.
Retail: Click & Collect wins praise from seniors
Click & Collect sales were up 63% this year compared to last year. As usage among seniors has risen, 83% of new C&C consumers were using the service as a way to avoid crowds, improve convenience and save time. At Pointr, we help retailers deliver a great Click & Collect experience with better stock picking journeys.
We're very happy to leave the dreadful 2020 behind and we're full of hope and excitement for a much better year. May 2021 be the most inspiring year yet!
Happy New Year!
Best wishes and yours sincerely,
Your Pointr Team
