The internet is the only place which is helpful to make people’s life easy by providing necessary things. The e-businesses available on the internet provides the facility to get what people want without stepping out from their door. It also allows them to get doorstep delivery.
Shopping from on-demand applications available over the internet is a favourite activity of all. It gives multiple options to choose from along with competitive prices. In today’s aggressive competitive market, every business has to go through a lot of efforts before it can get its place among its competitors.
The only business which is never going to outdate from demand regardless of the circumstances is Grocery Business. In offline shopping for grocery, people need to visit the supermarket, look for the products they want, stand in queue for billing and so it becomes a tedious activity for all. For making this tedious job a bit comfortable for users, grocery delivery app and the web like Bigbasket,Instacart,Grofers & Amazon Pantry has become the new trend.
These on-demand platforms can bring a lot of value to one’s business; expanding sales and profits like never before if it has the correct mixture of features which functions well and have an understanding of user’s requirements in it.
One time investment in Grocery Software/Backoffice!
The product which we will deliver to you will include software for you and an app for your customers. Before digging into what you’re getting, let’s see how a grocery app will function.
As mentioned in the above image, the user initially logged into or register in the application. Once the registration or login is done, based on the requirements the user will browse from available products. Pick the products which are needed, add them into the cart, proceed for the checkout, choose the payment method, do the payment and bingo! the order has been placed.
Here the step which we should not forget is to add the delivery address of the user. To manage the address and other personal details of users, the app is having a profile screen from where user can manage this. The user can easily track the delivery using live tracking option. The delivery can be scheduled for the user’s comfort. After delivering the product the user can rate and review the delivery which can be helpful to other users while shopping.
For any retailer or vendor, the back-office is very important software as here he is going to manage everything which is going to be visible to the user on his app. Let’s have a look at what the vendor or shopkeeper or software owner can manage.
The vendor or shopkeeper initially logged in to the system. They will redirect to the dashboard panel where they will be able to see the recent orders placed by the users, statistics of stock and products etc. Here they can manage a category of products together with its available stock, manage the users, manage the orders, manage discounts and offers for the users, track the revenue of the business and also if they have multiple vendors associated with the business he can manage them as well.
