Zebra Technologies Helps Biocoop 21 Ephemeral Store Enhance and Streamline Customer Checkout Experience

Zebra's DS7708 scanners and MC2180 mobile computers increase store associate efficiency

Paris, July 7, 2016Zebra Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: ZBRA), a global leader in providing solutions and services that give enterprises real-time visibility into their operations, recently equipped the ephemeral Biocoop 21 store in Paris, set up by France's largest organic grocery cooperative and a leading organic food retailer, with DS7708 scanners and MC2180 mobile computers to improve staff productivity and enhance customer service.

Biocoop has opened its first ephemeral retail outlet in Paris, offering unpackaged organic food to an extended range of more than 250 grocery items. The benefits of easily identifying products and optimising the speed of cashiers to reduce customers waiting time in queue were critical for the group.


  • Zebra’s DS7708 lets Biocoop store associates scan virtually any barcode even if the codes are damp, very small, poorly printed or damaged. It is seamlessly integrated into Biocoop's point of sale (POS) software, being developed by ECO-SI, a subsidiary of Biocoop.
  • Coupled with high accuracy, the faster swipe speeds offered by the DS7708 scanner allow checkout staff to process customers quickly and efficiently.
  • Meanwhile, the Zebra MC2180 mobile computers enable quick and easy inventory management by store floor staff.
  • Over 100 Biocoop stores are equipped with Zebra solutions for everyday operations.


Pierre Voirin, chairman of ECO-SI, Biocoop

"We have already successfully deployed Zebra scanners and computers at several of our stores. We know that they are reliable, robust and accurate, which is why we also chose them for our new ephemeral outlet in Paris. We've installed our ECO-SI software, together with a solution from mobile computing specialist, Aircode Software on Zebra hardware. It all works brilliantly together!"

Raphael David, Data Capture Solutions sales, France and Benelux, Zebra Technologies

"Our DS7708 scanners and MC2180 mobile computers enable staff to effortlessly increase checkout throughput, which significantly reduces customer waiting time. Our products are designed to offer reliable, robust solutions with the scalability required to address the evolving needs of both store assistants and shoppers. Zebra is helping Biocoop to simplify and optimise the organisation of its retail business. And customers can enjoy a better in-store experience and save time."
