Leading Danish retailer chooses StrongPoint Grocery Lockers for their e-commerce click & collect pilot
(Oslo, July 8 2021) StrongPoint ASA, a leading retail technology provider, announces that Coop Denmark A/S has chosen StrongPoint as their grocery locker supplier for their new click and collect at-store grocery pickup pilot.
Coop Denmark A/S have already been using StrongPoint’s Order Picking solution to do in-store picking and are now further enhancing their e-commerce offer by expanding into what is fast becoming the click & collect solution of choice, temperature-controlled grocery lockers. StrongPoint’s grocery lockers are purpose-built for grocery retailers and outdoor use and come with integrated software for remote management and app-based loading and unloading for speedy access.
Coop Denmark A/S has been expanding their grocery e-commerce offer for several years and have in the past piloted and tested multiple delivery methods to provide their customers with an online offer. Providing an outdoor contactless click & collect solution was a logical next step in their e-commerce evolution due to the increase in demand for at-store pickup options.
“We have known StrongPoint for many years and are very pleased with their Order Picking solution that we use for our in-store picking for online orders. Our sister-company Coop Sweden has already been using StrongPoint’s grocery lockers for some years and we have been closely following their successful roll-out and results. We were most interested in how StrongPoint’s lockers will impact efficiency savings for the stores and customers satisfaction,” said Morten Viktor, SVP Digital & Online at Coop Denmark.
“We are pleased to be able to support Coop Denmark A/S in further enhancing their e-grocery offering and are proud that another leading grocery retailer has opted for our grocery lockers. Outside is the new inside and grocery retailers like Coop Denmark A/S need durable long-lasting products that can withstand weather fluctuations. We hope that Coop Denmark’s customers enjoy using our locker solution when picking up their online grocery orders,” said Jacob Tveraabak, StrongPoint CEO.
