Self-scanning capabilities enable in-store navigation and assistance to streamline workflows
UTRECHT, The Netherlands – Aug. 11, 2020 – Zebra Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: ZBRA), an innovator at the front line of business with solutions and partners that deliver a performance edge, today announced that Dutch supermarket retailer Jumbo selected Zebra’s PS20 personal shopping solution (PSS) to deliver new in-store navigation and assistance applications for a personalized shopper experience. They are the first Dutch retailer to offer this innovation to their customers and have plans to expand this solution to other Dutch and Belgian stores.
“Zebra’s self-scanning PS20 solution offers the high-performing functionality we need,” said Michiel Kienjet, Programme Manager, Formule & Format, Jumbo. “Shoppers enjoy using the new personal shopping assistant, especially how easily they can access information on the large dedicated screen. We’ve seen exceptionally high use of PSS at Jumbo – in some stores, self-scanning already accounts for 70% of sales, and this figure will only increase.”
To enhance its competitive edge, Jumbo migrated from its former personal shopper devices to the new platform to enable new capabilities and applications for their customers. Zebra PartnerConnect Premier Business Partner Simac IT NL BV, a specialist retail systems integrator, deployed the solution with Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Premier Partner Re-Vision’s self-scanning software across Jumbo’s stores.
The PS20’s integrated front-facing camera combined with Phillips LED in-store lighting will be utilized for a new locating and navigation application. This will help guide shoppers around the store using an on-screen map. Jumbo is also introducing self-scanning customer assistance to access their advisory service; shoppers will need to activate the device’s microphone via Push to Talk. They will be able to ask for assistance, recommendations or product information, and one of the nearby store associates, working with the PSS, will receive a notification and will respond. Store associates also use the device for order picking as the built-in camera will be able to pinpoint shelves with low stock levels that need replenishing quickly.
“During the pandemic, Jumbo has seen a significant increase in customer self-scanning, click & collect and home delivery,” said Casper Zweers, Benelux Regional Director, Zebra Technologies. “The new personal shopping solution delivers streamlined, frictionless in-store workflows for shoppers and store associates alike. The new applications being deployed by Jumbo on the PS20 place them at the forefront of retail innovation.”
