Auchan Retail Portugal has launched a new mobile application that enables consumers to register products and manage their shopping lists.
The Jumbo app will be available at 34 stores trading under the Jumbo and Pão de Açúcar brands in Portugal, and the retailer says that it will help reduce the time spent on a typical in-store shopping trip by 30%.
In addition to saving time, consumers can put together family's shopping list through the app, with every family member able to add the products that they want via their individual smartphones.
In store, shoppers can register products by reading the QR codes as they are placed in the bag.
At the end of the shopping process, there is no need to remove products from the shopping cart or basket when paying, speeding up the process, with payment made via Scan Expresso checkout tills.
The application is now available for download from the App Store and Google Play.
Auchan Retail Portugal’s goal is to bring a wider range of mobile technologies to the in-store environment, including platforms to provide information about promotions, nutritional information, ingredients and allergens.
