Dmall, a smart retail solution provider and software-as-a-service platform, plans to expand its reach worldwide, using Hong Kong as a springboard for regional and international expansion. The company, which has already established a strong presence in Hong Kong, aims to increase its staff levels from 45 to 300 in the coming years. Dmall offers an end-to-end retail operating system that includes an app, website, point-of-sales system, warehouse management system, and inventory management system. The company uses AI to drive on-shelf availability to 99%, promising customers that they will almost never find an item they want unavailable on supermarket shelves.

The company also plans to support start-ups by acting as an accelerator and helping them expand into overseas and mainland Chinese markets. Dmall’s expansion plans also include regional presence in Cambodia and Singapore, with further expansion into Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. The company is also working with large retailers in Europe to bring them on board in the next 12 months. In addition to its innovative retail technology, Dmall plans to enhance the in-store customer experience by providing sustainability metrics and supply-chain information through QR codes.
