K-Supermarket Kuninkaankulma Tampere, Finland starts using Smartcart – the first store to utilize intelligent shopping carts outside the Helsinki metropolitan area.
Following two weeks of user experience merchant and store owner Mr. Mikko Salmia sees Smartcart in a very positive light….
I think it is great that there is something unique to my store and thanks to the charging station and automation my employees are virtually left with no additional work.
The staff does not need to do any downloading or remember to switch on/off gear as its completely automated Store Owner Mr. Salmia says.
In fact, I heard about Smartcart by coincidence but I was immediately interested in the idea and I saw the potential. I think the Smartcart shopping-cart supports our own business idea extremely well as we are doing a huge comprehensive change. A huge change in the physical frame work of the store has already been done and work continues on functionality and marketing.
The Smartcart shopping carts are a concrete example of the new creation.
Smartcart has brought added value to trade.
Smartcart has brought added value and additional sales. A few customers have commented that, “Well I wasn´t supposed to buy a product, but when the Smartcart advertised.”, or “I was meant to buy one, but I bought a few as there was a special offer,” said the store owner enthusiastically.
In particular one of the best features is the navigation function on the Smartcart as the store has been totally renewed.
I think the recipes and new products feature supports our “a better than usual grocery store” message excellently.
The staff likes it..
Also the K-Supermarket Kuninkaankulma, Tampere Finland staff have accepted the Smartcart as their own.
Yes, the staff is very excited! The basic premise we have is a total reform of which the staff want to be a part of. The Smartcart shopping carts are a tangible thing. We will not be lagging behind; we want to be at the forefront in certain matters. We have the first Smartcarts in this area, says Mr. Salmia.
K-Supermarket Kuninkaankulma renovation and reform has the customers smiling.
The store has received tremendous praise for brightness, clarity and wide-open spaces. The store reopening has been a highly awaited event following the renovation.
How does the K-Supermarket Kuninkaankulma differentiate itself from other stores in the centre of Tampere, Finland?
I believe that we have the most comfortable shopping experience. And we have great new facilities. We are the quickest store for the busy lunch buyer thanks to the To-Go fast entrance. Even though you can get specialties from our delicatessen and we have fantastic new facilities we still provide the “everyday shopper” with our own important brands like Pirkka and K-Menu products, says Mr. Salmia.
