With Unata Connects, grocery retailers can quickly and easily integrate their different digital providers and vendors spanning multiple categories, some of which already support existing out-of-the-box integrations, including:

 

  • Digital Coupons (YOU Technology)
  • Email & Push Notifications (ExactTarget & Urban Airship)
  • In-Store Fulfilment for Click & Collect (Shopperkit & HighJump)
  • Online Payments (First Data, Vantiv, Authorize.net, PayPal)

Unata will continue to add new partners to expand the capabilities of its platform and enable more rapid integrations. This will ensure less disruption to a retailer’s existing vendor landscape, and also provide multiple options where the retailer has yet to identify a vendor relationship.
“We work closely with our network of grocery retailers across North America to understand and accommodate their digital needs,” says Diego Maniloff, VP Engineering at Unata. “We’re confident that our new third-party hub and initial of out-of-the-box integrations will not only make digital implementation easier on retailers, but help them deliver a competitive customer experience.”
