App eases ordering of deliveries for Nisa members
By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 19 Jan 2018
NISA has developed a new mobile app to help its members place their orders more easily.
The specialist delivered wholesaler’s software is designed as a simple tool which enables retailers to build and place orders, price check products and promotions and view deliveries on tablets and smartphones.
Peter Walker, head of business systems at the Scunthorpe giant, said: “The app has been created to help our members and make their lives that little bit easier. It allows retailers to check products, promotional offers, place orders and check deliveries while they are on the move.”
The app has a scanning function which allows retailers to quickly create orders and search for products in-store using the device camera.
Mr Walker said: “It is a simple, no-cost option for retailers to quickly create and place orders. Stand-alone hand-held ordering units have, to date, been a costly piece of equipment and often restrictive to use. With this app, the full Nisa range can now be easily searched regardless of location, and with the quick order function utilising the mobile devices existing camera to read barcodes, ordering is now simpler and faster than ever.”
A utilities function has also been developed which allows retailers to quickly calculate any combination of margin, cost or sell to help maximise profits in store. And members can also use the app to quickly check their
Nisa deliveries and see presells, substitutions and amendments to orders.
The app has now been launched to all members following a trial period which was well received by retailers involved in the pilot.
Mr Walher added: “The members who have been trialling the app have been very complimentary and they are finding it a very simple and efficient process.
“I’m confident it will make a big difference to our members as they get on board in the coming weeks.”
