What is our background and what do we hope to achieve.
Newtelligence is a collaboration between retailers and a software house - Arkitec Software Ltd. It is our aim to create products that further the digital aspirations of the convenience grocery sector.
The company was founded in late 2013 by our MD Purdeep Haire. He brought together a team of current retailers and IT experts with the sole mission of driving digital engagement for convenience stores. Current retailers remain at the heart of our decision-making process and we believe this sets us apart from our competition. We consult our own panel of retail experts to help determine the direction of future development for all our products.
