NEW YORK, March 19, 2020 (Newswire.com) - FutureProof Retail (FPR) is donating its Mobile Checkout Solution to grocery stores, pharmacies and supermarkets to help reduce stress on stores and communities nationwide. Created and powered by FPR, Mobile Checkout is helping shoppers practice social distancing and avoid standing in lines while enabling them to get the food supplies they need.
Given the current health crisis, New York City’s Fairway Market incorporated its Mobile Checkout application as part of the market's shopper safety recommendations to its customers. Since the shopper safety campaign, Fairway has seen an over 300% increase in app adoption. At least 20% of transactions are now coming through their mobile checkout app in their city stores, and 30% at the peak location.
Using the solution, customers scan and pay for items with their phone. The solution removes the need for cashiers to handle customers’ items and allows customers to purchase without waiting in line. “Because of its potential public health benefits, we are offering our basic service for free during the current state of emergency,” FutureProof Retail CEO Will Hogben says. “The more stores we can enable, the more people will avoid checkout lines, reducing stress on the stores and community.”
While there is a national state of emergency, FutureProof Retail (FPR) is donating its line-free checkout solution free of charge for grocery stores, supermarkets, pharmacies and other retail establishments that serve essential community needs:
Line-free mobile checkout with the retailer’s own branding via the Express Checkout app
Associated control systems for store staff and headquarters management
Easy CSV integration for importing products and prices, and exporting transaction logs
Customizable communication templates, including email, social media and in-store signage
Rapid deployment (three working days)
