About us

So1 is Google Adwords for retail.

We have built and are expanding a revolutionary cross-retailer promotion platform based on cutting-edge algorithms and a seamless online integration with traditional offline retailers. On our platform we allow retailers to target consumers truly individually and in real-time with the most efficient discounts and promotions.

Our models infer, predict, explain and measure the behavior of shoppers. Our algorithms optimize for econometric goals adjusted for long-term customer satisfaction and engagement.

The So1 Engine learns from billions of consumer transactions and derives the right impulse at the right time to induce a change in customers’ behavior.

We partner with leading retailers and have been backed by high-profile investors Target Partners and Shortcut Ventures with 8-figure investments.
