Shop Simply, Inc. (SSI) is the result of technical advances by Alistair Black. While searching for solutions to biological modeling questions, he created a new virtual robot concept. Using patented (and Patent Pending) virtual robot technology, SSI allows online shoppers to purchase items from multiple retailers with one click from a single website.
This unique technology automates and enables the entire shopping and checkout process creating a new e-commerce model, which makes it easy for the user to navigate thousands of retailers and 10’s of millions of discrete items.
This aggregated robotic e-commerce technology is particularly interesting to large international brands that can drive traffic and keep customers on their own site while still allowing shoppers to access goods from unlimited well-known retailers.
