CART Releases New eCommerce Buying Guide For Supermarket Retailers


Guide breaks down each provider’s capabilities and top 10 factors to evaluate

LOS ANGELES – May 4, 2016 – The Center for Advancing Retail & Technology (CART) today released The eCommerce Buying Guide for Supermarket Retailers, identifying the top 10 things grocers need to consider when evaluating eCommerce solutions, along with a scorecard listing the key features, functions, and capabilities of each solution available today.

“eCommerce has exploded in the grocery industry as Google, Amazon, Uber and others continue to push into the space,” said Gary Hawkins, founder and CEO, CART. “Supermarket retailers are no longer just competing with each other; they’re competing with some of the best technology companies in the world.“

Retailers, wholesalers and, to some extent, brands, often struggle to sort through an overwhelming and expanding variety of solutions, capabilities and vendors all promising similar results. As with any retail segment, selecting the right solution can be made easier by analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of all providers, especially in the ten most critical categories CART has identified – ranging from user experience to security, data analytics to industrial focus and beyond.

“CART looks at new eCommerce solutions on a weekly basis and has worked with retailers on a variety of deployments,” said Hawkins. “Having a global perspective of the most effective and important solution features has enabled us to guide retailers toward solutions that maximize customer engagement, support smarter business and deliver reliable growth.”
