BELGIUM, 2015-3-30 — /EPR Retail News/ — Carrefour Belgium will soon provide its customers with a facility for scanning items in their homes so they can then order them online. The device will also recognize products marketed by competitors, and scanning them will generate spontaneous suggestions from Carrefour.
Customers will use the device to scan their products and then add them to their virtual shopping lists. For example, they will be able to scan an empty biscuit packet and add a new one to the list. The device will feature a database of 1.3 million barcodes and will also recognize competitor products. The scanner will also be voice-enabled.
Customers will then be able to check their online orders, make any changes to them and then pick up their shopping from one of the collection points. Carrefour Belgium is shaking things up and is using new technologies to steal a march over its competitors!
