Scandit, a computer vision solution provider, is harnessing AR technology to help retailers bring an online shopping experience into the physical store. The company’s tools let shoppers use their smartphones to scan display products or digital catalogs to see additional product information, videos, pictures and reviews.
Shoppers also can use self-checkout through their smartphone to have items that aren’t in the store shipped to them. They also can scan barcodes at home to place an order or arrange for an in-store pickup. The elements are designed to help retailers make their stores feel larger than they actually are.
Associates can use Scandit’s solutions to provide better customer service through clienteling and mobile POS. Scanning devices can help them handle in-store tasks more efficiently, including shelf management, click-and-collect fulfillment and price verification. The tools also increase efficiency behind the scenes, where mobile scanners can reduce the time taken to locate goods and verify shipments.
