The grocery store Grocers’s Cloud and the idea to use an e-commerce software
This article is about a grocery store that opens up an online shop called Grocer’s Cloud using our SAAS Food Commerce Cloud e-commerce software. The grocery store described in this article is fictive, but this story can (and probably will?) become reality for many real grocery stores all over the world.
A grocery store selling fresh and high-quality food
Imagine you run a grocery store and you are selling fresh fruit and vegetables as well as typical consumer packaged goods. At your deli counter you sell fresh cold cuts like turkey, beef, chicken and ham as well as a variety of fresh cheese. And you slice and package it at your customers’ choice. Your customers order by weight and decide if they want to have their slices thin, medium or thick. And at your butcher’s department, you offer meat and poultry that is not pre-packaged but really fresh. Steaks cut in the desired thickness and packaged either in paper or in vacuum. Ground prepared in front of the eyes of your customers. To put it in a nutshell: you sell fresh high-quality food and your customers love it. And that’s why they come back and buy at your grocery store again and again.
The benefits for Grocer’s Cloud to run an e-commerce software
Now imagine you want to extend your grocery business and sell over the internet. You want to participate in the fast-growing e-commerce market for food. And as you want to be sure your high-quality food is still fresh, when your customers receive it, you do the delivery with your own cooled trucks. Furthermore, it is important to you to run a sustainable business with as little packaging as possible and short distances from your grocery store to your customers. You sell in your region and you are not sending parcels throughout the country.
Now, what if there was a software that perfectly supported your needs to run this very e-commerce business? What if the software was proven already in the grocery market and you didn’t have to pay dearly? What if you even didn’t have to invest big money upfront but you paid for the software only based on the success of your grocery e-commerce business?
