Smark offers a new kind of shopping experience with fully automated shopping stations. Co-founders Philipp Hoening and Max Ittermann created the concept to make grocery shopping easy, quick, convenient and possible at any time, for anyone. Items are ordered in advance via smartphone or onsite via a touch screen. Within a minute, the shopping basket is automatically assembled and dispensed by the station. The technology behind the process was created by the startup and is called the ‘smarkBox’ – a combination of hardware, automation technology and web technologies.
