Scandit Mobile Order Entry Solution
Scandit’s new mobile Order Entry solution empowers wholesalers to allow retailers in their network to access product catalogs on their smartphones, build orders by scanning or searching for products, submit orders on the fly, reference order history, and receive exclusive deals on their mobile devices. Wholesalers and their retail customers can increase order frequency by providing a fast and easy way for employees to place orders, reduce costs by streamlining the process of receiving orders, drive sales by providing timely promotions and order reminders, get real time purchasing analytics, track orders in progress, and more.
Scandit Self-Checkout Solution
Scandit’s integrated Self-Checkout solution permits consumers on mobile devices to quickly and easily scan products as they shop and add them to virtual baskets, review detailed product information, access their purchase history, receive deals and offers while shopping, utilize new payment solutions like ApplePay to speed through checkout and much more. Scandit’s self-checkout technology benefits retailers by enabling them to offer customers an innovative new shopping experience, resulting in shorter lines and fewer abandoned items. Retailers can also reduce the number of traditional checkout stations required, reducing operational costs, push coupons and deals to customers as they shop to increase customer basket size, gain intelligence from real-time analytics and build deeper engagement with customers leading to increased loyalty and satisfaction.
