In order to keep your customers safe in the comfort of their homes, let them order their needed groceries in large quantities through the mobile app.

Due to the worldwide pandemic COVID-19, which has also hit Croatia, many people are experiencing self-isolation and quarantine for the first time. For the past few weeks, the stores have therefore been overcrowded with frightened people, who have been stockpiling in order to have enough supplies during the period of self-isolation.

But do we have to expose ourselves to risks and unnecessary trips? Particularly in this day and age of digitization, when you can order everything from your cell phone or computer – from cosmetics to clothing, food, and more.

What you need, as a local store, is an application that will protect your business, but also your employees.

How Can the Application Help You?

With the app, you attract customers who can more easily carry out their daily purchases, and it helps you compete in the market. In order to keep your customers safe in the comfort of their homes, let them order their needed groceries in large quantities through the mobile app. Customers may also opt to pick up groceries at the local grocery store, but due to the extraordinary circumstances that now prevail, there is currently a greater emphasis on delivery.

The app provides retailers with an overview of customers who have registered and allows retailers to receive their orders automatically through the app. For stores that have multiple branches, the app gives you the option to choose the location of the branches (if it is a chain of stores). Stores have the option of being connected to existing systems, as well as to insert their pricelists, special offers, loyalty systems, etc. If full integration is made, a status check can also be made, as well as notification that the top-selling goods are missing once they fall to minimum stock (if this is not already set up in your system). In stores, there is the option of both the mobile and web applications to monitor and track orders, depending on which version suits you better.

Who Should You Contact to Make an Application?

Contact an experienced company with 13+ years of experience working with large retail chains that sell food products, baked goods, and confectionery, with deep knowledge of retail technology. Contact a company that knows how to connect all the different parts needed to create a truly integrated solution. We have developed and designed custom B2C applications for large businesses with over 500 offices, and can offer you the best in-app functionality in order to enhance your online shopping experience.

What If I Want to Make My Own Application?

Creating an application is a long, time-consuming process. Designing mobile applications entails the process of designing an application, programming, implementation, as well as testing and distribution to online stores. You can acquire all of this more easily with a ready-to-use application – GROCERY STORE. We present to you an application that will protect your business, but also your employees, and provide your customers with fresh food every day without fear of contagion.
