“Three things are central to the Buyk business model: hyperlocality, execution and, of course, our proprietary technology,” Slava Bocharov, CEO and co-founder of Buyk, said in a statement. “Tried and tested through years of our European operations, this technology is the magic through which the whole business operates. With this tech, we can assemble the ideal assortment for each area down to the finest detail, we can optimize picking strategies to ensure your order leaves the dark store almost as soon as you’ve put your smartphone down, and we can study the best routes to shave vital minutes off delivery to ensure your order arrives when you need it, and not a second later.”
