Technology keeps advancing and with each step that it takes, it tries to make life a little easier for us. The main idea is that all these technological advances are integrated into our daily activities, such as: refueling, taking public transport, going to dinner at a restaurant or shopping at the supermarket.
In many of these sites we have seen how it has been including the use of mobile technology to facilitate and expedite the consumer experience. One of the most recent options that many users have is to be able to pay in different establishments using the contactless mode of their bank cards integrated into the mobile.
As you can see, the use of mobile phones is increasingly going beyond being a simple communication or leisure device, now it has become a tool for different daily activities, and aware of that need for consumers to have their mobile devices operational, several establishments offer WiFi and charging station for their customers.
The supermarkets, one of the most visited daily establishments, have already joined the technology car and chains such as Bon Preu, Condis and Carrefour have installed Yurcharge charging stations so that their customers can have a mobile charger within their facilities. It is a reality already palpable and that sure will continue to appear in many other supermarket chains.
Another supermarket format is born
Now we understand that the supermarkets of the future are these where there is more and more integration with technology. But in addition, a new concept of market or supermarket seems to have born, which is still in the development stage and may definitely be the establishment of the future, a format in which the use of mobile devices will be absolutely necessary.
Amazon opened its new concept of supermarket called Amazon Go in which customers only using their mobile phone can enter, pick up the product they want and go back out without having to queue to checkout.
How does this new supermarket format work?
Users need to have a downloaded application and an Amazon user account, when they enter, they must pass their mobile phone through a sensor that allows them to access the store, and when they leave, they must pass their cell phone again through the same sensor that registers the purchase. It’s that easy, that fast.
If this new supermarket format continues to grow and expand to other chains, then having Wi-Fi and charging stations in the supermarket will be a totally essential service.
