The eCommerce buzz is becoming reality as FMCG retailers push online shopping solutions to the top of the CART Composite Index with a score of 4.31, reaching 215% above the average. FMCG retailers are also focused on in-store marketing, inventory management and self-checkout amongst several other major trends.
The CART Composite Index measures search activity and solution engagement from more than 30,000 users representing retailers in every state in the U.S.
In April 2013, Birdzi, Inc. (“birds-eye”), in collaboration with CART, deployed a highly innovative, anonymous in-store shopper detection technology in two U.S. grocery retailers. This technology detects and follows the movement of Wi-Fi enabled personal mobile devices throughout a store environment to accumulate actionable data.
Learning to understand real shopper behavior represents the latest front in the retail industry. Technologies such as the one presented here, helps independent retailers to remain competitive.
Birdzi can be implemented to gather shopper data over a period of time as well as engage shoppers in real time during their visit, should they chose to participate.
The solution is easy to deploy and scalable through a cloud-based centrally managed system that is capable of collecting data in real time.
The research study has been divided into two phases. This paper (Phase I) focuses on the mobile analytics aspect, which can be used to adjust store operations through more effective scheduling or improve in-store merchandising leading to an increased basket size.
A subsequent paper will focus on Phase II, demonstrating Birdzi’s potential as a shopper engagement tool.
The aim of this case study is to showcase the benefits and relevance of mobile analytics technology in a retail setting.
CART’s website is a one-stop shop for retailers looking for the latest technology advances.
Technology, and the pace at which it changes, can be overwhelming, especially for independent retailers who are often juggling multiple roles as CEO, COO and CTO of their companies. But technology is also the future, and retailers must hop on the train if they want to succeed. For those that don’t know where to turn, CART (Center for Advancing Retail and Technology) has set up a website, www.advancingretail.org, to act as a conduit for retailers, solution providers and brand manufacturers.
As the nation's economic recovery continues, supermarkets and other mass market outlets across the country, which capture 38% of the floriculture market, are expanding their floral offerings and anticipate an increase in sales. But it's not just the uptick in the country’s economic condition that's spurring sales. Retailers are redefining the supermarket floral department by concentrating on making it a point of differentiation, a go-to destination for shoppers, and a focal point within the grocery store. And while consumers will always consider price a significant factor in the purchase decision, overall freshness of floral and appearance of the department are the most important buying criteria for shoppers who will likely only spend their discretionary money on flowers that will meet these expectations.
Achieving these goals, while optimizing floral department operations, can effectively be accomplished through the use of Sterilox FloraFresh. Unlike other solutions available in the marketplace, FloraFresh does not require any additional products to be used along with it. It is a concentrated, one-step solution designed to keep flower buckets clean, the water fresh and odor free, and provide essential nutrients to fresh cut flowers.
FloraFresh is a safe, broad-spectrum cut flower formulation in a stabilized concentrate form of electrolyzed water with potassium-based electrolytes. The solution was designed to keep water in flower displays clear and eliminate any buildup on the vases and buckets that hold and display flowers.
FloraFresh integrates seamlessly into the operations of any size floral department. It comes in a 2.5 gallon container with a proprietary delivery system that is installed within the floral operation. The solution is delivered through a trigger-activated dispenser that employees use to easily refill flower vases and buckets.
The following case study reveals the results and benefits experienced among several independent grocery retailer study participants at Roche Bros. who used the FloraFresh solution in their floral departments.
Meticulous compliance with temperature control and monitoring practices is a fundamental necessity for food service providers in order to assure product quality and safety. As both hot and cold menu offerings continue to expand in the supermarket environment, this activity grows more complicated, placing a greater burden upon operators to maintain excellence. Many observe that existing paper-based recordkeeping processes are no longer adequate for the modern grocer.
With these issues in mind, two retailers collaborated on in-store deployments of a food safety and intelligent checklist platform beginning in summer 2013. The activity was focused on deli and prepared foods departments located at one store of a regional supermarket chain and a single-store independent grocer.
The platform (PAR EverServ® SureCheck®) uses digital temperature testing devices linked wirelessly to a cloud-based server application. Among multiple benefits of this arrangement, the platform helps food service associates to better manage temperature monitoring activities in a timely manner, while faithfully capturing an activity log that may be monitored to prove compliance.
Results to date indicate improvement on several key performance dimensions compared with previously existing paper-based record keeping methods.
As independent supermarkets gain strength and momentum in the grocery retail industry, they continue to spar with larger, national chains in a highly competitive marketplace, working hard to survive on small margins. The complexities and risk factors faced by independent grocers require them to implement ways to cut costs and expenses and keep a tight hold on cash. However, while strong accounting practices and efficient operations are fundamentally at the root of doing so, large numbers of independents do not recognize that deficiencies exist in their cash offices, a scenario that can be a major liability to any business. Many independents execute various practices that were implemented years back, but they have not reviewed their entire cash office reconciliation process including balancing, reporting, and auditing for an extended period of time. As a result, these retailers are unaware of inefficiencies and any areas where profit is leaking.
In today’s retail marketplace the customer experience is a main focus, and shoppers are looking for stores that provide benefits that go beyond price such as assortment, excellent customer service, and a variety of payment types and points of payment. Unfortunately, while retail has evolved significantly over time and the front end has completely changed, the cash office has remained stagnant despite the demand of working with new payment types and processes. In response, technology solutions that can drive efficient store cash management should be leveraged to improve the overall bottom line. Optimally, supermarket retailers should be able to implement a solution that tracks and reconciles transactions from the point of sale terminals to the bank and up to the corporate level. In this case study, several independent grocery retailers provide insights into how the use of Balance Innovations’ solutions has done just that and facilitated improved accounting systems and operational efficiencies across cash management modules.
As the leading provider of reconciliation and efficient cash management solutions, Balance Innovations has special expertise in software solutions for the cash office. They understand the pain points of retailers and what they need to do to optimize cash office and accounting efficiencies. The Balance Innovations organization looks at cash management through a holistic lens considering the cash office as an extension of the total store. As such, they help retailers view and treat cash as they do every piece of inventory in their stores, tracking every bundle of money with the same fervor and accuracy as every unit of canned beans.
Balance Innovations offers solutions for best-in-class retailers who want to better manage the store reconciliation process through an end-to-end automated solution that streamlines processes and provides analytical data to help identify problems. In the following pages, several independent grocery retailers provide insights into how they have integrated Balance Innovations solutions with their existing POS technologies to automate and improve revenue balancing, check processing, and self-checkout management.
