Morrisons Develops App So Wholesale And Franchise Partners Can Top Up In Its Supermarkets

 Morrisons Develops App So Wholesale And Franchise Partners Can Top Up In Its Supermarkets



Morrisons is to allow its wholesale and franchise partners to top up on food and drink lines in its supermarkets at prices based on agreed terms.

According to trade magazine The Grocer, a newly developed app allows retailers within the Morrisons supply network to scan the items they need in stores using their smartphones.

Once they have completed their shop, they check out with a duty manager. However, rather than buying at normal in-store prices, the wholesale customer is invoiced on their existing agreed terms, with an electronic delivery note sent to their store EPoS systems and email.

Morrisons wholesale division currently stocks a range of over 9,000 products for delivery, supplying more than 1,600 stores across five countries. The top-up solution is seen as an extra tool for its customers, who will continue to be serviced by the existing delivered model.

NamNews Implications:
* Morrisons have, in effect, increased their wholesale/franchise distribution points…
* …to include all of their retail branches as a top-up facility.
* Neat!
* And probably makes them the best UK wholesaler in terms of coverage…
