Retailers may want to deploy smart shopping cart project now to reduce the labour cost and to increase the retail efficiency . As a retailer who have deployed smart shopping cart project , there are 5 suggestions for you to adopt .
(1) Decrease the numbers of cashiers in the supermarket .
Smart shopping cart can replace a cashier’s work ,as it supports customers purchase items by themselves and check out by themselves . If you plan to deploy a smart shopping cart project ,then you can decrease the number of cashiers in the supermarket .
Also , you could eliminate the number of cash counters .The smart shopping cart supports customers check out at any where in the supermarket , a dedicated smart shopping cart lane is enough .
(2) Spare some space to place the smart shopping carts and to charge the smart shopping carts .
The smart shopping carts need to be placed separately as they need to be charged every day . Usually , you need to spare a wall to install a wall mounted magnetic charger .
But the smart shopping carts won’t occupy much space , they can be alternated together just as ordinary shopping carts .
(3) Train the supermarket staff to put emphasize on the smart shopping cart project .
A successful smart shopping cart project needs to be implemented together by the smart shopping cart manufacturer and the supermarket staff.
At first , there are some work supermarket staff need to do . For example ,charging for smart shopping carts ,managing the smart shopping carts . The supermarket staff also need to guide customers to use the smart shopping carts .
So I suggest you to have a formal meeting to inform all your supermarket staff regarding the smart shopping cart project .
(4) Post some guidelines of using smart shopping cart .
Even though you think that a smart shopping cart is easy to use , there are still some people who have trouble to use a smart shopping cart .
You need to post some guidelines or DM posters on the wall of the supermarket , they will customers a lot in the first stage .
(5) Record the sales revenue of your supermarket ,including the sales details .
This is a very important suggestion for you . The main reason retailers deploy a smart shopping cart project is that they want to decrease labour cost and increase sales revenue of the whole supermarket .
A smart shopping cart collects and records customers’ shopping data and shopping preference then send precise coupons to them . This will greatly stimulate customers to purchase more items in one transaction . Thus the whole sales revenue will increase .
When you hire less cashiers , the whole labour cost have decreased . But you also want to know whether the sales revenue have increased .So I suggest you recording the sales revenue of your supermarket , including all items’ sales revenue ,then you can compare the sales revenue after you have deployed smart shopping cart project for some time .
This is a very way to test a smart shopping cart project’s ROI .（Author : Superhii, Cindy Xin）
