Noted in Gartner research that highlights, "interesting, new and innovative vendors, products and services"
CHICAGO, Oct. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Bringg, the leading delivery and fulfillment orchestration platform provider, today announced that Gartner has recognized the company in its report, "Cool Vendors in Food Retail: Catering to New Customer Lifestyles." According to the report, "Retail CIOs should consider these Cool Vendors that enable retailers to make accurate and speedy business decisions, minimize waste, orchestrate fulfillment flexibility and increase customer loyalty."
The COVID-19 pandemic has created a massive shift in consumer behavior, especially when it comes to purchasing and acquiring food. For example, consumers have gone from multiple in-store trips in a week to strictly purchasing goods via e-Commerce, resulting in food retailers pivoting overall strategies to meet the demand.
Gartner cited, "Consumers' expectations for flexible fulfillment options remain a basic requirement and a critical one for retailers to satisfy. For grocery retailers, the diverse methods of fulfillment, as well as the costs associated with the last mile, make it exceedingly difficult to protect margins and achieve profitability while, at the same time, meet consumer demands for convenience and flexibility."
From creating an e-Commerce site that can handle a sharp increase in traffic, to implementing curbside pickup, and optimizing fulfillment and delivery logistics and more, food retailers should not only think about short-term effects of COVID-19, but how the changed behaviors will become the norm in the long-term.
"We are thrilled to be recognized by Gartner and to be named to the Cool Vendors in Food Retail: Catering to New Customer Lifestyles report," said Guy Bloch, CEO of Bringg. "COVID-19 has presented food, grocery and retail overall with many new challenges this year. To meet growing digital demand along with increased customer expectations, retailers must evaluate their fulfillment and delivery models. They need to scale up and optimize their logistics operations for greater cost efficiency while always delivering an exceptional customer experience. That is how they will continue to differentiate, meet increasing demand and gain market share."
