Knowing you and your business
To set you up for success we believe in really getting to know you and your business. By deeply understanding what matters to you and what you’re looking to achieve, we can work our hardest to help you get there.
It’s all about simplicity
The world is full of technologies and marketing tools that are essential to doing business, but add complexity to your job. We focus on simplifying these tools so you can spend less time managing technology and more time on delivering a brilliant retail experience for your customers.
A platform built around you
Since our founding in 2015 NearSt has been built in collaboration with retailers. Everything we do and create is driven by feedback from the shops we work with, and cultivating a relationship that helps us understand where we can have the most impact on your business.
Working on a first-name basis
We believe we can help you best when there’s a close and open relationship built on trust and a deep understanding. That’s why you will always have a named Customer Success person that you go to with questions, ideas, and anything in between.
