“As a kid we always dream about running our own business – we start by selling lemonade on the street where we dedicate all our time and energy serving our customers. And nowadays? Today in-store traffic is shifting to online interactions while local businesses struggle to engage with customers on digital channels. This is the reason I founded mPocket to help local business to connect, interact and engage with today’s customers. – all in just one app.” (Markus Demirci, founder and CEO of mPocket)
Our mission is to create a customer interaction platform that allows local businesses to connect, interact and engage with today’s customers.
Our vision is to simplify 100% of the digital communication, interaction and transaction for local SMB and empower all retailers, high streets and the shop around the corner for the future of physical retail.

Rollout of the “Connected Store” solution
