FutureProof Retail (FPR) has added a “Specials” function to its Mobile Checkout application.
Mobile Checkout is an easy-to-use, white labeled shopping app. that merchants can offer to their customers. With this app in hand, customers shop as usual, but scan items as they are placed in the cart. Once the shopping trip is complete, the consumer simply pushes a ´check out´ button, and pays via their smartphone, credit/debit card, or Apple Pay.
Now, with the inclusion of the specials function, the Mobile Checkout app is able to find current sales items on the merchant´s website, auto-update the app with this information, then push that information out to consumers.
This process saves massive operational time, since the current method of updating specials involves marketing personnel researching items on sale, designing a circular, updating the website and copying each special into a database.
The specials function will also increase revenue for merchants with it´s push notification to consumers. Customers have the option to receive notifications [at home] to view specials, and are able to save liked-items; when the consumer shops the app gives a reminder of these saved specials.
