In the middle of Berlin, we are crafting the future of retail, so that retailers can optimize the promotions they offer their customers. The artificial intelligence we have developed is based on cutting-edge machine-learning algorithms. It analyzes customers’ purchase histories and calculates the right inducement (the combination of product, discount and time) that will as efficiently as possible persuade a customer to buy a product.
Our team comprises leading machine-learning experts, developers of real-time applications, as well as strong management with experience in the industry. For our employees, SO1 is more than a job – it’s their passion and fascination, for which SO1 provides a home.
SO1 is supported by leading tech investors.
