What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Grocery Queue
Grocery Queue

This is a picture I took on a typical weekend trip to my local supermarket. It is surprising that with so much technological development we still have to queue at the supermarket and various other such locations just to pay for our shopping.   

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just walk into a store, scan the items you want to buy, pay without needing a card and just walk out?

Planckly is an app that does just that! It runs on mobiles and smartwatches!

Unlike some other companies that use facial recognition and thousands of sensors, we have used technology that is available now and is easily implementable in stores today with minimum or no changes to existing infrastructure of the retailer.

If you are are retailer, you can join our platform to give a much more efficient and modern shopping experience to your customers. All major retailers and supermarkets provide self scanning and now with Planckly you can provide this experience to your customers. Back us to help you enhance your customer experience and grow your business.

The future is now! [The app is not live at this supermarket - yet!]
The future is now! [The app is not live at this supermarket - yet!]

We have filed a patent (Application Number GB1708341.1 : https://www.ipo.gov.uk/p-ipsum/Case/ApplicationNumber/GB1708341.1 ) for certain key functions and related business processes of the platform.

Scan, Pay, GO!
Scan, Pay, GO!

 After investing over GBP56,000 of our own cash and about nine months of hard work at break neck speed, we have managed to launch Planckly in the real world. Our team now comprises of six full time employees and two technical consultants. 

You can help us make in-store shopping faster and easier as we  transform the in-store shopping experience.

Making the app available for mobile phones was the easy part. However, in order to make it possible to scan a barcode using a smartwatch or a wearable camera with existing technology in a simple way we have used a very specific combination of hardware and software including wearable technologies (IoT) and artificial intelligence/neural network algorithms. The App uses artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to offer personalised shopping experience. We use API based integration with mobile payment processors and PoS providers. 

Shoppers can use the Planckly app to access the platform. The app is available for: 

  • iOS and Android mobile phones with camera 
  • Android Watches with Camera 
  • Other compatible devices (such as mini wearable cameras) that run Android operating system

While you can use our app on most phones; for the smartwatches and cameras we have carefully selected manufacturers to produce watches with our required specifications (memory sizes, camera, processing power and connectivity etc). We are in advanced stages of incorporating NFC based payment in our watches.

Working with existing manufacturers simplified the hardware development process and reduced the hardware risk significantly. We have tested prototype and we have confirmation from them that they are ready to produce and ship out the watches once we place an order (kids watch will have our app embedded in the firmware of the watch and the adult watches will have the ability to download our app from Android PlayStore like any other app).  

We did not change the external design of the smartwatches at this stage but focused on their internal capabilities and power to ensure they can support the functionality in our App. The design may change for watches once we include NFC based payment.

We are developing our own mini wearable cameras that can read barcodes; we have found the right balance between features and size and our first prototype should be ready in the next couple of weeks. Both of these items are available to backers as rewards. You could be the first one to use this cool new convenient method of shopping.

  • Venue/attractions/rides tickets 
  • Event tickets 
  • Flat packed furniture retailers 
  • DIY stores 
  • Printed catalogue based sales of clothing and accessories 
  • Transport tickets
  • Fuel at gas stations
Same App at Multiple Retailers
Same App at Multiple Retailers

The platform is already live and you can use the app in Dubai and Chicago stores that are running a trial:

- Dubai: Small grocery store that has been running the pilot for the platform for last few months

- Chicago, USA: A small chain of fast food stores on SquarePoS is onboarded and buyers can use the app to order and pay for the items on the menu

- Singapore:  A large supermarket chain is interested in implementing our platform in their stores. This can provide a real breakthrough for us as we would connect to two major PoS providers NCR and Wincor which means that implementation in a vast number of other retailers will become very easy. These two PoS providers hold a significantly large share of the PoS market in the supermarket segment.

We are contacting with various other retailers around the world (UK, Australia, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain etc). We now need your help to bring more retailers on to our platform so that you can shop in more and more shops without queuing to pay.

We just need to connect our app to the retailer’s point of sale system – this is usually a simple process using Application Programmable Interface (API). However, we need funds to hire sales staff to engage with the retailers, pay for travel costs and pay salaries of the developers who would connect the app to retailers’ systems. 

Sellers also access our platform using the app. The platform is practical and easily implemented in a variety of retail settings with minimal or no upfront investment as it uses existing infrastructure of the seller (retailers don’t need to buy expensive cameras and computer equipment or make significant changes to their current software) to achieve a truly checkout counter free shopping experience! It can save a lot of money for retailers (hopefully they will pass on these savings to the shoppers).

Shopping with Planckly - Scan, Pay, Go! 

Planckly has been designed and developed to provide a simple and super-efficient in-store shopping experience. To avoid queues you just need to take these simple steps after downloading the Planckly app from App Store or Google Play Store (no hidden costs, no unlocking charges, totally free of cost): 

  • Go to a store where you want to shop (if that store is on Planckly) Once at the store, open the app and confirm that you are at the store by either of the following methods: 1. enable Bluetooth to receive Bluetooth beacon signal from the store 2. scan the QR code displayed in the store 3. tap on the NFC tag in store 
Store selection

  • Start shopping. Use your phone/watch/camera to scan barcodes of items you would like to purchase and put those items in your basket (if you want to put the item back on the shelf just adjust the quantity of the item in the app, no need to re-scan the item) 
Scanning  barcode

Planckly has further fun and time saving features: 

  • Speech recognition feature allows you to make your shopping list by speaking rather than typing! This appears in your Planned Baskets. In addition, that list is quickly imported to your current basket view and as you buy that item its colour in the list is changed so you can easily see which items in the list have not yet been purchased. 
Speech recognition

  • You can either scan barcode of the item you want to buy or you can easily search it in the app and select it manually by a single tap.
Search items

  • Scan an item once and just increase/decrease its quantity by simply tapping on the quantity buttons (makes much easier to buy multiple numbers of same item) 
Adjust quantity

  • Your baskets are saved in app and if you register for an account in Planckly, you can access your baskets from multiple devices (convenient for families on regular shopping trips). You can import any saved basket to your current basket, just adjust quantities and ensure that you have put same items in your physical basket and just pay for it and walk out – you don’t even need to scan barcodes!
My baskets

  • You can connect multiple devices over Bluetooth to your main mobile so that when that other device scans a barcode or adds an item to the basket, it is immediately available in your current basket. This can allow multiple people to shop simultaneously in a store while only one device is used to pay for the whole basket. This can save time and make shopping trips more fun especially for kids.

Planckly on Wearable Mini HD Camera for hands Free Scanning

For a true hands free shopping experience we have designed a wearable mini HD camera that can connect to your phone over Bluetooth and work with the app. The prototype is in development phase (software optimisation according to the selected hardware is in progress after which a final prototype will be developed).

  • You could just clip the camera on to your clothes. 
  • When you are not shopping, you can use this camera to capture pictures and video like a normal wearable camera, 
  • When you are shopping, you can pick items and present their barcodes to the camera for scanning in a natural way; just connect the camera to your phone via Bluetooth (you just need to pair it once and next time it will connect with the same phone automatically when the phone’s Bluetooth is enabled). 
  • You can also give the camera to your shopping companion and that way you could scan items using your phone while they can scan other items using the mini camera (as long as they are within the Bluetooth range) thus you can save more time on shopping. 

Planckly on Smart Watch that has a Camera that can also scan Barcodes

If you have put a SIM card in the watch or are connected to WiFi, you do not need a mobile phone to use the watch for shopping. Just open the Planckly app on the watch, scan the barcodes of the items and pay on watch. 

If you want to use the watch to send scan data to a mobile phone when you are shopping, just connect the watch to your phone via Bluetooth (you just need to pair it once and next time it will connect with the same phone automatically when the phone’s Bluetooth is enabled) and open the Planckly app both on the phone and the watch. Now just bring the barcode of the items in the range of watch’s camera. The scanned item will be added to your basket in Planckly app on your phone. 

Existing Smartwatch Designs that we are Upgrading to allow NFC Payments
Existing Smartwatch Designs that we are Upgrading to allow NFC Payments

We have three models, 

  • Round dial: Elegant and stylish design with high specs and lots of fun and useful features. The camera is ideally placed facing your hand from your writs to allow barcode scanning in a natural way. You can make calls from the watch if you put a SIM card in it. It has 1GB RAM and 16GB ROM with a quad core processor. The screen is AMOLED 1.39inch (3.5cm) with 400x400 resolution. We will add NFC Payment capability to it.
Round dial watch

  • Rectangular dial: Beautiful and simple design. The camera is on the outer side of the wrist just where the strap connects to the watch.  Comes with lots of fun and useful features. You can make calls from the watch if you put a SIM card in it. It has 512MB RAM and 4GB ROM with a dual core processor. The screen is capacitive 1.54inch (3.9cm) with 240x240 resolution. We will add NFC Payment capability to it.
Rectangular face watch

  • In the kids model the camera is near the strap and is also movable and can be turned to face upward or turned outwards. You can make calls from the watch if you put a SIM card in it, you can also track the watch's GPS location (you may track your child's location to ensure their safety and well being). Our app will be embedded into the watch firmware. This model does not allow users to install apps.

You can also connect the watch of your shopping companion or your kids to your Planckly app and that way you could scan items using your phone while they can scan other items using the watch (as long as they are within the Bluetooth range) thus you can save more time on shopping and kids can have some fun too.  

“Internet of Things” version of the App for Generally available Smart Watches 

We are working on developing the “wear” version of the app for both iOS and Android wearable devices. For example, if you have a smart watch that supports Android or iOS you should be able to download and install the app on to your device and extend the functionality of Planckly easily to any such wearable item. 

For watches and devices with camera and barcode reading capability, we aim to replicate the full functionality of the Planckly app so you can complete the whole purchasing process without needing your phone (if your device can connect to internet using a SIM card or Wifi). For devices that may not have camera or barcode reading capability, you should still be able to complete your purchases by selecting relevant products in the app instead of scanning the barcodes.

The Platform Overview 

Planckly as a platform is not limited to grocery shopping, it can be used by a number of different types of retailers for example, shoe shops, charities, prepared or fast food shops, coffee shops, flat packed furniture retailers, DIY stores, printed catalogue based sales of clothing and accessories, transport tickets, venue/attractions/rides tickets, event tickets and many more. 

Platform
Platform

Planckly also levels the playing field for smaller stores that otherwise may not be able to afford to have their own app. Now smaller stores can easily join Planckly platform and offer their customers the same convenience as a big supermarket!  

Planckly is an optimal mix of existing well tested technology, futuristic elements of technology and human involvement. Planckly is affordable to any store size and can be implemented quickly – there is no need for expensive hardware or still evolving, privacy invading, constant tracking algorithms. 

This app does not eliminate humans, it reassigns them to more value adding job roles i.e. moves many staff from behind the counter to close to the customer in a more consultative sales role. 

Planckly is already available in a few stores in the US and UAE; while a large supermarket chain in Singapore is keen to trial it in their stores. We want to connect Planckly to as many stores as possible so that shoppers that have Planckly on their phone can conveniently shop in any store. You won’t need to download apps for each store separately or go through annoying registration processes.

Rewards Summary 

In appreciation of their early support, would like to give our backers the following rewards: 

Rewards for Individual Users

Personalised Shopping Experience: Power to Consumers!

We believe that shoppers can achieve significant savings from personalised offers and discounts delivered through Planckly.  

We will use Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning algorithms to manipulate actual shopping basket data of the users and will apply big data techniques to help retailers identify how they can serve you better as their customers. Retailers are usually keen to find ways to give personalised discounts and offers to existing or targeted customers. 

Retailers on the Planckly platform will be able to know what a customer is NOT buying from them but is buying from somewhere else. This can push them to improve their offering  and better manage their business. It is mutually beneficial for both retailers and the consumers.

Planckly does not gather your personal data e.g. what you post on Facebook or twitter is none of our business. We use actual basket data and due to the very nature of the platform we can apply “you may also be interested in this item” or “frequently bought together” type recommendations that are usually seen in online shopping but until recently have been impossible to generate in an in-store shopping experience.

Our simple retailer administration panel allows retailers to specify offers and discounts to be applied to anyone meeting certain characteristics. Our system then applies big data analysis techniques to dynamically provide those offers and discounts to customers who match those criteria e.g. a retailer may set a rule that anyone who has been usually buying more items in larger quantities but this time picks up only one of those items then give them a buy one get one half price offer (even though this offer is not available to all customers in store).

We want to put consumers in a position of power. We want retailers to increase competition and tell individual shoppers what they can offer to them individually, as opposed to a general offer for everyone, at the time when you are actually shopping – not when you are going to office or when you have completed shopping and are finally paying at the till.

Planckly will increase your ability to avail any discounts and offers as any vouchers and coupons can be saved in the app instead of being in paper format that is easy to lose and a hassle to remember to bring it your next shopping trip! As the offers and discounts will be based on your basket history, they will be much more relevant to your own needs and preferences. 

We want consumers to feel being valued and served by the retailer. However, we don’t think it means that they should know your name and your social media posts or pictures or they should greet you when you enter the store. We believe it means that once they identify your presence (more precisely the presence of your mobile device with Planckly app not facial recognition) in the store, they should make every effort to give you the best offers they can. To ensure highest level of such service and for you to feel valuable, even if you are in store A, you will be able to see the offers from store B, which means that store A cannot take you for granted on the basis that you are in the store already – they will still have to offer you best service as they know that other stores are approaching you and may be making better offers to serve you.

Planckly also has its role to play in saving the environment as when you pay on your own phone you won’t need the paper receipt and this can save at least a few trees – every single one of those trees count!

Growth Plan   

Planckly’s internal architecture has been designed with maximum flexibility in mind. It can be integrated or connected to a wide variety of point of sales (“PoS”) systems or it can even take store product and price data in a file format. 

 Good thing is that once we connect to a PoS for one store, on-boarding other sellers that have implemented the same PoS becomes very simple. This means that we can grow very quickly – for example if a PoS provider has a 1000 clients, once we on-board 1 client, the technical process of on-boarding the remaining 999 clients becomes very simple.

Our ambition is to go global very quickly, we already have presence in three continents and with additional funding we can expand our penetration to more stores and broaden our reach to other towns, cities and countries.

If you would like to be able to use the convenience of Planckly, back us now and let us know which store in your area you would like us to talk to and implement Planckly first!

Risks and challenges

Over the last few months since we conceived the concept, we have already spent over GBP56,000 in developing the app, developing our patent pending technology that is the backbone of the platform and testing it in actual stores with real customers.

The biggest risk now is that more stores do not join the Planckly platform thus the users are not able to use the app in a wide range of stores and retailers who are on the platform are not able to send their tailored/ personalised offers and discounts to a wider range of audience. We need to engage qualified sales team to ensure we reach out to as many sellers as we can and make them aware of how easy it is to implement Planckly and how it can help them provide a much better sales experience to their customers. Our strategy is to spend more time and energy with medium to big retailers (mainly in grocery sector and venue ticketing) as smaller stores tend to just follow the lead and jump onto the bandwagon. This is the main reason we are raising funds as we need to spend on sales and marketing in order to grow the platform.

There is also a risk that our current technology infrastructure may not be robust enough to handle a large number of users thus may become slower as traffic increases. We are currently hosting our infrastructure on Amazon's servers and as our traffic increases, we will buy more server space and more computing power from Amazon which is one of the best if not the best provider for this purpose. Part of the funds raised here are expected to go towards this technology upgrade costs.

There is a risk that due to delivery issues or other reasons, the wearable cameras or watches may not be available on time. We have identified the manufacturers and part suppliers and are confident of them delivering the orders in quantities that we have listed in rewards. However, we will keep you updated of the progress and make refunds if we are unable to deliver the reward within a reasonable time period after the agreed delivery date that is acceptable to you.

There are various grocery and food retailers that have launched their own apps to allow their customers to self scan and pay for the purchases. Recently a bank in the UK has announced that they are testing an app that allows people to scan, pay and go, however, their process is focused more on purchases of a few items rather than the a trolley. There is a risk that stores with their own app may not join the Planckly platform. However, we believe that there are compelling reasons for them to join the platform as it should be less costly for them than maintaining their own app, would make it easier for customers to use this shopping method as they will need to use a single app in multiple stores, if they already have their own self scan app it should be very easy for them to join the Planckly (they can keep their own app as well if they like) and they should be able to reach out to users who would not be shopping in their store! This also gives them a much broader set of a consumer's behavior to better personalise the offers and discount for their customers. Our sales teams will have to emphasise such points to them. In respect of the UK bank, we believe that we have a more comprehensive suite of features in the app and our highly efficient method of basket checking by the seller would make us a preferred choice. In order to further increase cooperation with them and try to develop the awareness and increase adoption of this modern way of in-store shopping we are ready to use them as our payment processor i.e. if someone uses Planckly or the app being tested by that bank, the payment processing revenue still goes to the bank thus they should be largely indifferent as to which app a customer is using. We need to spend time with these market players to sign contracts to grow the platform and with sufficient funding we believe we can easily hire the right people to do this job and make Planckly available on a truly global scale.

    Hands Free Scanning: Wearable Camera

    Based on feedback from in-store trials we understand that sometimes scanning with a hand held mobile phone is not ideal, so we have developed a small camera as an optional accessory to go with the app.

    This Bluetooth based small camera doubles as a barcode scanner and a normal camera. It is small enough to be clipped onto clothing, or shoulder bags and scans the barcodes of items as you pick them up and present for scanning - keeping both your hands totally free for shopping! You can even give this camera to another person in the store and you both can shop at the same time – you use your phone to scan while they use the camera to scan items.

    Your phone can stay in your pocket or purse or shoulder bag and would vibrate every time you successfully scan an item. Once you have scanned the items you can easily review and edit your basket on the phone before payment.

    When you are not shopping, you can use the camera to take pictures and videos.
