Boone, N.C. — Progressive Grocer magazine, a grocery industry publication reporting on the top trends and latest information, recognized ECRS’ Catapult® WebCart™ as a ”Click and Collect 2.0” solution to merge store and online commerce in its February 2017 issue1.
In the article Pete Catoe highlighted some of the key points of the platform’s design, its functions, and its benefits for grocery retailers:
“To us, it’s just another lane. The consumer will make their transaction online, but it will be tied into the store POS system. It’s the same data, same customer, everything. This allows the consumer to look up their historical transactions, whether they were made on the web or in the store, redeem their loyalty points, use coupons, etc. We call it ‘unified transaction logic.’”
CEO & Founder of ECRS
The article, “Retailing on Demand” also discusses:
- the growing impact of technology on the food industry,
- the importance of direct-to-consumer retailing, and
- the significance of making a shift towards a more demand-driven supply chain.
