PopCom (formerly Solutions Vending, Inc.), an automated retail technology company, has successfully raised nearly $950,000 through its Title III regulation crowdfunding campaign on StartEngine. Founded in 2012, PopCom is the company behind PopCom Kiosks and the PopCom API. Its data and analytics SaaS makes kiosks and vending machines smart through data collection at the point of sale (POS).
“At PopCom, we believe successful brands are intelligent, mobile, and resilient–and we engineer our automated retail solutions to be exactly that. Our mission is simple: equip entrepreneurs and brands with future-ready retail solutions that allow rapid retail expansion, incredible customer experiences, and powerful sales data.”
PopCom’s patents are currently pending for a new automated retail hardware design called PopShop Kiosks with a solid software IP. The company has raised more than $900,000 from TechStars, Canopy Boulder, Backstage Capital, and Jumpstart. It has also formed a direct partnership with Kiosk Information System to white-label its software to become the preferred automated retail CRM software provider.
“We’re redefining omnichannel strategy for worldwide brands– from Fortune 500 companies to nimble e-commerce entrepreneurs, providing a completely new direct-to-consumer channel backed by unparalleled data and frictionless transactions.”
PopCom also reported that will be “disrupting” massive regulated industries, including Legal Cannabis, Pharmaceuticals, and Other Verticals like alcohol, tobacco, lottery, and gambling.
“PopCom’s white label software solutions can be used to create a fully compliant, simplified, and automated point of sale system regardless of jurisdiction with advanced metrics available for consumer behavior and demographics. “
Funds from the StartEngine round will be used to continue the growth and development of PopCom’s products. The campaign is set to close mid-April.
