LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) October 05, 2020
Halla, a taste intelligence company that enables grocers to predict the personal preferences of their shoppers in real-time and its partner FutureProof Retail (FPR), the leading provider of scan-and-go mobile checkout solutions, announced today a 5% spend boost resulted from shoppers using the companies’ integrated technology in a well-known New York City grocery chain.
Together, Halla and FPR are offering the first ever mobile grocery checkout experience with real-time, in-store, personalized recommendations. In a randomized study of more than 17,000 shopping trips over a period of three months (May-July 2020), buyers using the Halla-enabled FPR scan-and-go app purchased 5.37% more than the control group. Use of the technology also correlated with increased order frequency and profitability.
“Working with FutureProof Retail’s mobile checkout platform allows us to offer shoppers the best part of our online recommendations capabilities in physical stores,” says Henry Michaelson, President, CTO and Co-Founder of Halla. “As shoppers scan items, they enjoy inspiration, food discovery, and coupon notifications all uniquely tailored to their personal preferences.”
“Even during a pandemic, over 85% of shoppers are still shopping inside grocery stores,” adds FutureProof Retail President Di Di Chan, “With more than a 30% mobile checkout adoption rate already, our no-touch, scan-and-go mobile checkout platform is a leading solution that’s helping retailers offer a convenient and hygienic solution to indoor shopping for both shoppers and staff. We are delighted to team up with Halla to bring recommendations and other benefits of online-personalization into physical stores.”
It takes best-in-class technology solutions to deliver a truly frictionless experience for both retailers and shoppers. FPR and Halla are examples of affordable, in-store technology that help retailers transition their in-store shopping journey into a safer, more convenient, and more personalized experience.
