Who we are
In 2013, Highstreet Mobile Retail was born believing that the future of shopping is mobile and we can help make online and offline shopping much nicer. Nowadays, more than 50% of e-commerce is taking place on mobile devices. However, the user experience of shopping on smartphones and tablets is far from great. That is what we want to change with Highstreet.
Our platform lets brands create a high-quality native retail app based on their existing webshop in just a few weeks. It is our mission to create the best mobile shopping experience. We are always pushing the limits of what’s possible in terms of user experience and ease of use, our front-end engineers play a vital role in this.
