Blakemore Fine Foods launches mobile ordering app
A brand new mobile app from speciality and fine foods supplier Blakemore Fine Foods is aiming to offer customers the ability to order products on the go.
The app – which is available for free on both iOS and Android platforms – enables customers to order products for delivery from the Blakemore Fine Foods range of more than 900 chilled and ambient product lines.
Developed with mobile app consultancy RNF Digital Innovation Limited, the platform will include a barcode scanner and profit-on-return (POR) calculator as well as facilities for retailers to search products, view their order history and favourite items.
Commercial manager Patrice Garrigues said investing in new technology was essential for efficient business.
“We have developed this new app to help make our customers’ lives easier and improve their ordering experience,” he added.
Sarah Gill manager at The Burstead Farm Shop in Essex who has used the app said: “The barcode scanner is an excellent feature as it saves flicking through a brochure to find codes.”
Daniel Mansfield of the Treehouse Farm Shop at The Willows Garden Centre, Lincolnshire added: “From searching for a product to scanning or increasing product quantities it was so straight to the point and quick. It’s definitely the way I’ll be placing orders in the future!”
