What a photo-finish!
The Finals of the X5 Retail-Tech Challenge took place yesterday as ten of the most promising new Israeli technologies in retail tried to impress a panel of judges that included the X5 Retail Group delegation and nine Israeli judges, representing a wide range of viewpoints.
The IRCC's source within the judging panel reported that a number of the companies made quite an impression and only after a tense debate, the winner emerged; Anagog, providers of a unique approach for hyper- personalized marketing and promotion. The X5 team grasped the game- changing potential and, as winners of the competition, discussions regarding the pilot project were initiated immediately.
Second place (Evigence Sensors) and (two) third place companies (Varcode and TarriTech) were also highly praised for their solutions in the area of fresh produce and cold-chain monitoring.
All-in-all, we were pleased with the eager participation and the warm feedback from across the eco-system of participants, and we extend our thanks to the contestants, the judges and the X5 team for their highly engaged participation.
