About Shopbox AI
We are an award winning retail technology company, who believe that the customer should be at the heart of everything online retailers do. That is why we created our ai-powered personalisation platform rooted in consumer behaviour and shopping psychology. We believe that adapting the store and experience based on the interests and behaviours of site visitors, not precoded offerings, increases customer satisfaction, conversion rates, retention and revenue. Founded in Ireland in 2020 we have grown internationally and count brands such as schuh, Kitlocker, Eason, Molloy's Liquor Stores, Toolstation and Euronics amongst our expanding family of customers benefiting from the Shopbox platform.
