WHY US

Meet Beam

Beam is a global payments acceptance platform for the 21st century with built-in support for smart contracts.

We created Beam to help retail value chain stakeholders become more efficient by engaging with their customers in a direct, meaningful and effective manner.

Beam enables stakeholders across the retail value chain to incentivise desired customer behaviour by defining measurable goals with an attached monetary reward for their achievement.

The Problem

Today, the retail value chain is inefficient. This is because no one truly understands customer needs and wants. Companies you come into digital contact with have fragments of your data in disparate centralised databases.

Each party holds a piece of the puzzle and are unwilling or unable to share it with each other. No one has a complete picture of individual consumer behaviour that dictates demand and supply.

Tech and payment giants monopolise this loophole to reinforce an exploitative product-driven economy. While the technology is available to take the retail value chain to the 21st century, the giants are too powerful to overcome.
 

The Solution

Deciphering customer needs and wants is the key to informing demand and supply, and there’s really only one source of truth when it comes to customer data - the customers themselves.

We have created the Beam Platform to end the war on data. We are building the future of retail where the customers are the owners of their data. Not only will the data belong to us, we get paid for sharing all or parts of it with whomever we see fit.

Utilising blockchain, the Beam Platform facilitates the exchange of data for value between retail customers and stakeholders. This exchange solves the customer behaviour puzzle by providing the retail value chain with real time access to insights that were previously deemed impossible.

This is the greatest opportunity in the history of retail to eradicate waste and free itself from incumbent intermediaries.
