Superhii technology company is one of many technology companies looking to streamline the process of shopping and checking out in physical stores .Such initiatives are driven in a part by a quest for new cost efficiencies given the traditionally razor-thin profit margins in the retail business .
Now more and more retailers want to start a smart shopping cart business plan , there are four reasons :
(1) Covid-19 is an accelerator .
Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic , social distancing and contact-less transactions have been emphasized . The smart shopping cart maybe the most appropriate tool to help retailers realize contact-less transactions .
Moreover ,the smart shopping cart could quicken the shopping process and decrease the customer’s stay time in the store , it’s equivalent to make customers keep social distancing .
Besides , the smart shopping cart has an anti-bacterial coating which could help prevent the viruses and bacteria , it is safer to shop using a smart shopping cart than an ordinary shopping cart .
(2) Checking- out free is appealing .
The smart shopping cart is designed for supermarkets and retail stores . For customers shopping in a supermarket and retail stores ,they could directly scan bar codes of items in the shopping process and pay for the shopping bill directly on the smart shopping cart .
As the smart shopping cart is accepted by more and more customers , retailers saw an opportunity to take the checkout-free shopping experience to a wider market with the smart shopping cart ,and they determined to start a smart shopping cart business plan .
One more reason is that waiting in lines at the cash counter has been a serve problem in a traditional supermarket shopping scene , customers has complained a lot about the long queues .
With the smart shopping cart , long queues will not exist any more .At the same time , customers satisfaction will increase .
(3) Increasing sales revenue .
Retailers think that the smart shopping cart could bring much benefits to their stores , the most obvious benefit is that the smart shopping cart could increase the sales revenues of the retail store .
Why can this be realized ?
The smart shopping cart could record and collect customers’ shopping data in the whole shopping process ,based on these data , the cart will know every customers’ shopping preference and then send promotional information and coupons to customers . This means the smart shopping cart will recommend to you items you really need and plan to buy .
Also , the smart shopping cart could send related items’ recommendations to customers , for example , if you buy some snacks , the cart will recommend to you some drinks .If you buy some bread , the cart will send you some butter to fit with your bread .
This will surely increase per customer transaction , accordingly , the total sales revenue in the store will increase .（Editor： Superhii , Cindy Xin）
