ABOUT THE CLIENT
Schnucks is a supermarket chain dealing in grocery products – Bakery, dairy, deli, frozen foods, general grocery, pharmacy, seafood, floral, snacks and liquors. Established in the St. Louis area, the company was started in 1939 with the opening of a 1,000-square-foot (93 square meter) store in north St. Louis and now operates 119 stores in five states throughout the Midwest. Schnucks is one of the largest privately held supermarket chains in the United States and dominates the St. Louis metro grocery market.
With the mobile app features, Schnucks wanted to join a wave of retailers that are updating their in-store apps or launching them for the first time. Many grocers are using apps to help customers manage features such as shopping lists and digital coupons remain popular.
Schnucks, a retailer focused on bringing its shoppers the latest and most innovative products, was looking to enhance and harness its customer’s mobile moments. The requirement for a mobile app was to keep existing customers, as well as new customers, engaged with information on new product releases, fast moving items and offers, enable mobile content and built-in notifications for access to deals on the go. The company wanted to express to its shoppers that the company is working towards a more frictionless shopping experience.
Emorphis mobile team delivered custom developed, native mobile applications for both iOS and Android platform with the required commercial features. Using web services created by Schnucks, the app enables dynamically communicated content for offers, categories, and products. The mobile apps lets the users get quick, real-time access to products, new arrivals, availability and offers.
Near real-time stock updates allowed viewing up-to-date product stock information while making their product selections. In addition, “wish lists” were built into the mobile app, so users could save desired products for later review and purchase. Access to key data such as – store locations, history of past purchases provides additional customer and application-wide search made the app fully functional and an immediate choice for customers on the move.
Using the mobile app, Schnucks is now able to disseminate information on products and offers to their customers by actively updating the content in the app through a web-based content management system (“CMS”) and sending out push-notifications. Customers can track new product availability and be notified of specials through push notifications.
Schnucks is now able to assess where their customers are engaging with the content and where purchases are coming from by comparing lifetime value for users of their website and the app. Real-time analytics provided Schnucks with the required insight on the features and offers to roll out and the timing on when to publish these offers.
