NEW YORK, July 13, 2018– New York based Shoppable Media Tech innovator Dropp.tv announces a partnership with Hong Kong and London based Zwoop, the most advanced e-commerce fulfillment technology provider available on the market. Together they will create a revolutionary shoppable media platform built on the blockchain and utilizing the latest in a.i. technology as well as deep machine learning.
Dropp’s proprietary technology will allow users to watch video streams and shop or store the products they see in real time. Zwoop’s smart a.i. finds these products online – confirming their availability and checking for the best available price – and automates the purchase process.
The organic partnership between Dropp and Zwoop is creating a global, shoppable media powerhouse that is challenging media and e-commerce industries. Together they provide consumers with unrestricted and unbiased access to the whole world of e-commerce and media consumption. Specifically, Dropp will provide lead-generation technology for e-commerce through its consumer facing video interface, while Zwoop will provide the back-end fulfillment technology and services.
Dropp CEO, Andy McCartney, says of the partnership “The combination of such powerful front end and back end technologies will advance the shoppable media space by leaps and bounds and change the way people interact with content.”
Zwoop CEO, Alessandro Gadotti, says “Our ambition is to transform how the world shops online, using AI and blockchain to remove the frustrations and inefficiencies of e-commerce and put the customer in control of the buying process. Our partnership with Dropp enables us to create the ultimate, seamless shoppable media experience.”
Dropp and Zwoop are enthusiastically building the next generation of digital interaction and are incredibly excited to see where this partnership takes them!
