What is Communitrolley?
Communitrolley is a marketplace app for local businesses. We connect customers who are struggling to get delivery slots with businesses that are struggling to stay afloat during the Covid19 pandemic - in fact, it is expected that 1 in 5 small businesses are going to go bust due to cashflow problems in the coronavirus crisis. Consumers have an easy shopping experience, in that they specify their preferences (e.g. speed or cost), search for products and add them to their basket. We connect them with the best business for them, or multiple if they cannot get their whole basket from one place! Not only do we provide customers with product recommendations (promoting growth for shops), we use machine learning to forecast demand for the business. This is known to reduce out-of-stocks and food waste, therefore maximising revenue and empowering local communities!
