Grocery Shoppers Are Expecting Three Things. Are You Delivering Them?

Posted April 30, 2021

Price, convenience, and speed are key trademarks when it comes to current customer expectations. However, positive customer experiences have also become a driving factor in securing customer loyalty and profitability. Studies show that shoppers can spend up to 140%1 more after engaging in a positive shopping experience. On the flipside, negative experiences are more likely to be shared between current and prospective shoppers, impacting brand identity and decreasing sales. While expectations can vary from brand to brand, today’s customers generally anticipate…

  1. Omnichannel options – Online shopping is most certainly here to stay. It is expected that as much as 70%2 of shoppers in the US will be purchasing groceries online since it serves as both a convenient and safe way to shop.
  2. Contactless pickup – Similar to online shopping, BOPIS and curbside pickup have also grown in popularity due to their convenience and safety.
  3. Personalized experiences – Studies show that 43%3 of customers expect some sort of personalized service from stores in response to their loyalty. 

What would seamless hassle-free grocery shopping look like?

To surpass these three common expectations, Barcodes, Inc. recommends targeting the following areas within the supply chain.

  • Faster shelf replenishment – Simply put, if products aren’t visible on shelves, customers can’t buy them. That’s why quick cycle counting and fast replenishment are crucial to avoid out-of-stocks. Mobile technologies such as Zebra’s touch computers and hands-free scanners can enable real-time inventory updates as associates scan products immediately during stock counts.
  • Intelligent point-of-sale – The longer customers wait in line, the less likely they are to return. Faster data capture through devices like Zebra’s enterprise scanners and MP7000 scanner can help accelerate checkout while empowering self-checkout lanes and loyalty scanning.
  • Quicker order picking – As associates adapt to accommodate BOPIS transactions, they must move faster and more efficiently to assemble orders within stipulated time frames. Real-time inventory locationing can help reduce pick paths, accelerating order assembly.

While these are optimum areas to start enhancing the grocery storefronts, there are many other ways to deliver seamless shopping experiences. Leverage Barcodes, Inc.’s expertise in developing a smoother shopping experience, equipped with user-friendly technologies that put the customer experience first.

How to Maximize Visibility and Minimize Costs at the Same Time

Posted March 25, 2021


Inventory management is a prominent struggle for most businesses, especially small and growing warehouses. Inconsistent stock counts can severely impact customer loyalty as they lead to surprise out-of-stocks, shipping delays, and misplaced products within the warehouse. Since the effects of improper inventory management can be detrimental, enhancing operational visibility is key to remaining competitive in today’s high-demand markets. To do so, businesses have sought to eliminate:

  • Paper-based systems – Small data entry errors can yield enormous costly consequences over time.
  • Disparate spreadsheets – Although digital spreadsheets are less likely to contain errors compared to paper-based systems, disparate logs can cause more confusion in the future as employees must navigate through several databases to find needed information.

As a Zebra Premier Solutions Partner, Barcodes, Inc. simplifies inventory management for small and growing businesses with Zebra’s adaptable mobile computers.

Easily Secure and Manage your Devices

Posted November 15, 2019
Mobile device management can help you protect your assets and increase productivity in your operations.

What is Mobile Device Management?

Mobile Device Management (MDM) is software that allows IT administrators to deploy, secure, monitor, integrate and manage a variety of devices including smartphones, tablets, laptops, and IoT devices in the workplace from a central admin console. MDM enables IT administrators to quickly address the challenges associated with mobility by providing a simplified and efficient way to view, manage and secure all company and employee owned devices across the enterprise.

How does it work?

The software works by installing an agent on each of the devices that need to be managed. Once the agent is installed on the end devices, it allows the centralized server to manage and communicate with the endpoints remotely. Once configured, this centralized server allows the administrator to enforce the corporate security policies, push out updates, and push new applications to enable more user productivity across all the managed devices.

How do I know if I need to implement a mobile device management solution?

With mobile security threats on the rise and with the increased compliance requirements from the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), every business should have a strategy in place to protect the integrity of the company network and the data that it contains. If your company depends on mobile apps to operate, you should look into a mobile device management solution to better protect your assets and manage your devices.

There are many benefits of Mobile Device Management, click and read this whitepaper to learn more about how you can deploy, securely manage mobile devices, and eliminate downtime in your operations. Barcodes and Zebra can help you easily secure and manage your devices.
