"We have worked closely together with Neste to develop their automated Easy Deli self-service store. I am very proud of our team, knowhow, and that we have been part of creating this new shopping concept that provides a contemporary and updated customer experience,"
"When developing the Easy Deli store, it was important for us to find a partner that was able to co-create a full, customized solution according to our needs. We chose Nordic ID as our partner as we found that they have the required technological and service creation knowhow as well as a can do–attitude."
Changed consumer behaviour requires new shopping concepts
"The idea to develop this solution was triggered by the change in consumer behavior. People avoid standing in line, and might even abandon their purchases if the queue is perceived too long. The check-out process at traditional barcode based self-checkouts might take even longer than at a manned register", explains Lehmuskoski.
With RFID sensor technology individual items are identified without visual sight, which enables large quantities of items to be scanned in an instant. Routine tasks can be automized and streamlined, as well as inventory take sped up considerably. RFID decreases the risk of scanning errors; each single item no longer needs to be scanned separately.
"Consumer shopping behavior is changing rapidly. We want to be part of this development and offer new kinds of smoother and faster customer experiences"
Neste opens an Easy Deli store on June 3rd in central Helsinki, Finland. During the Summer, Neste will open another Easy Deli store in the Helsinki area, and during 2020 in Riga, Latvia.
RFID-technology enables flexible automated shops
RFID provides many benefits over camera or scale technology solutions. Nordic ID's unmanned shop concept S/MART enables agile customization of the store setup according to customer needs and fits the budget of smaller retailers. Deployment and maintenance are seamless and cost efficient. Shop assortment and floor plan are easily modified if needed. Thanks to the adaptive concept, S/MARTs fit versatile environments such as hotels, self-storage warehouses and business hotels.
