And we’re back, two years after starting our business for real at the CES. In the mean-time KiOne had travelled quite a few miles, with a presence in no less than 7 countries. Perfect timing to come back to the Eureka Park with two novelties: a smart KiOne which has fully grasped the art of writing, and our last innovation, “KiBox”.
KiBox is meant for retail agencies with not only its ability to be integrated in any type of furniture, but also its numerous peripherals leaving room to plenty of imagination (controlled via a tablet, synchronization with other objects etc)
The robots have once more enlightened the day of many visitors while guiding them to the use of the products they were demonstrating.
Reseau Entreprendre is a network composed of 14 000 CEOs with a common vow : a promise to help, to support the new ones to be successful.
Our objective is simple : sustain the robot’s project and reach profitability.
Associated with the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in Orange stores, our robot KiOne has a new super power: writing.
The big plus of the Galaxy Note 9 is its stylus. What can be done with it is definitively what the robot must highlight.
Lidwine Martinot, our CTO, and the R & D team have developed some magic formulas: a hint of artificial intelligence for calibration, some style and curves and “voilà”, a robot ready to show the Live Message, the screen sharing and the cropping.
Slovakia, Romania, Belgium, Poland, Luxembourg, Spain and France welcome in Orange stores these unique robots eager to share their Galaxy Note 9 experiences.
Following naturally relationship with local Orange entities, Key Infuser just joins Woman Start program by Orange Fab and reaches international levels, in footsteps of startups like Famoco, Klaxoon, Bubbles, etc .

Beyond the launch event and the emulating meeting with other determined women entrepreneurs and Marie-Noëlle Jégo-Laveissière, Director of Technology and Innovation Orange, the operational follows up happens now: concrete actions are put in place from the first week of support.
Key Infuser is member of CRI (see 2018-06-15 article) and has been invited by POPAI to participate to a conference about “How to personalize you customer’s experience in hair dresser’s and beauty salons ?”
This invitation demonstrates recognition of Key Infuser’s expertise by a well known organization like POPAI. It was an opportunity for Key Infuser to promote its offer among a new segment : cosmetics and beauty industry.
Key Infuser robots were visible on Credit Agricole booth for the Paris Retail Week event. Our partnership with Crédit Agricole carries on ; we have developped a specific plateform with 2 robots to promote a new payment app from CA-PS (Crédit Agricole Payment Services).
The 2 robots received much interest and helped CA-PS staff promoting their applications.

Another sign of the recognition of Key Infuser by retail players: agency, brands and manufacturers!
Key Infuser was at the Crédit Agricole stand for Money2020 in Amsterdam, the fintech reference trade show in the world. This presence has given to Key Infuser an international exposure to major groups. The banking sector is a priority for the company and the KiOne robot is the ideal solution to promote the launch of new applications. The world of finance is in full revolution with new and disruptive offers (new payment services, blockchain, data and analytics,…) and Key Infuser wants to be a part of these changes.
Our presence has also allowed us to get to know the entire Crédit Agricole Payment Services (CAPS) executive committee and a partnership with CAPS has started, we can tell you more after the summer !
Providing the best customer experience is a strategical point for the well-known NASDAQ company Verizon. And that’s exactly the focus of the challenge that they proposed to the 9000 startups who were at Vivatech.
We are very proud to have won a prize on a subject that is dear to us. Bringing emotion, fun and pedagogy via KiOne the robot, are parts of Key Infuser values.
The opportunity of collaborating with Verizon around those values on an original project(…) is exactly the type of real opportunities that Vivatech Show generates.
The 2 startups have chosen to work hand in hand to present the first platform including connected devices, home automation and Smart City data during the famous show.
KiOne presented Imperihome application’s functionalities on Imperihome’s booth at the Eureka Park. Getting city air quality, checking city bike availability, activating a home alarm, closing the shutters, etc, all within this single application : KiOne had so many options to choose from.
“KiOne managed to present easily the functionalities of the applicative part. KiOne energized the presentation.” mentionned Laurent Perez CEO of Imperihome/Ziblue.
“During the CES, our robot became the friendly assistant of Imperihome team. The variety of features within the application provided a very interesting use case : KiOne showed the first part and the visitor continued on his/her phone.” mentionned Domitille Esnard-Domerego, CEO of Key Infuser.
