A2Z Smart Technologies Begins Pilot with Chedraui, a Leading Grocery and Department Store Chain in Mexico

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL / ACCESSWIRE / February 9, 2022 / A2Z Smart Technologies Corp. ("A2Z" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:AZ)(TSXV:AZ), today announced that the Company has launched a pilot program for its Cust2Mate smart carts with Chedraui, the third largest retailer in Mexico, operating more than 250 stores as well as operating stores in California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Nevada under the name El Super.

The first smart carts have arrived at Chedraui's flagship store in Mexico City. A2Z anticipates that a successful pilot will lead to a rollout with the Chidraui chain.

A2Z's state-of-the-art Cust2Mate Smart Cart streamlines the shopping experience by recognizing every purchased item and enabling in-cart payment so that shoppers skip lines, while also allowing retail grocers to direct shoppers to discounted products and in-store promotions to efficiently manage and move inventory.

"We are excited to have this opportunity to bring our Cust2Mate Smart Carts to Chedraui, a well-known and widely respected retailer," stated Rafael Yam, CEO of Cust2Mate. "As we continue to rollout our smart carts to an international audience, it is important that we give our retail partners, and their customers, the chance to experience in real-time how our carts contribute to a ‘frictionless' in-store shopping journey, with in-cart payment that eliminates the need to wait in a long checkout line as well as easy access to in-store promotions and discounts. We look forward to the successful completion of our Mexico City pilot and we are optimistic about the opportunity to broaden our commitment to include smart cart launches at additional Chedraui locations."
