Official Product Launch Announcement

As shoppers shift to e-commerce in droves during the pandemic, retailers with physical locations  need a strategy to bring them back to their aisles.

To help retailers meet these goals, MetroClick/faytech, the creator of dynamic interactive digital experiences, is introducing the EASY Shopper Intelligent Cart solution to the United States and Canada.

 

Already a big success in Europe, where it was developed by Pentland Firth Software GmbH, the EASY Shopper cart adds advanced mobile solutions such as such self-scanning and interactive displays to the modern shopping wagon. With EASY Shopper, the customer shops without having to repack, can skip waiting in line at the checkout, gets personalized promotions and messaging, can quickly get help and always sees exactly what she has purchased.
