Click & Collect underutilised by Australian Retailers 

 

Whilst Click & Collect (C&C) might not be a new concept, it’s certainly underutilised by retailers given the adoption by local consumers. Research suggests Australian shoppers have had a high level of Click & Collect usage: 45% of C&C users choose this delivery option to avoid home delivery charges while 37% find it more convenient than home delivery. (Patrick Viney, Vice President of Retail Industry Strategy in Australia) 

 

Despite its popularity, only 42% of Australian retailers offered Click & Collect in 2017, but that number was already steadily rising pre-Covid. In 2015 it was just 24%. (KPMG, 2017). Statistically, Australia had been lagging when compared to the number of retailers offering C&C in the UK and USA, and in doing so missing out on real opportunities for growth. Now, there is no choice. The Covid-climate is set to force retailers hands in needing to offer Contactless/Click & Collect in a bid to succeed among tough times. 

 

How does Contactless Click & Collect Work? 

 

stockinstore has recognized and resolved the key challenges faced by retailers seeking to implement Contactless Click & Collect. A lack of flexibility integrating with existing POS/ERP systems and complex rules, conditions and scenario-mapping have created road-blocks for many retailers, delaying roll-out of this increasingly popular delivery service.  

 

Working with growing sports retailer INTERSPORT Australiastockinstore Click & Collect customer, helped ensure that the stockinstore solution is up to the range of challenges faced by retailers. The NORA winners have already successfully integrated with many leading POS/ERP providers. A large stable of existing clients utilising their location-based Find In Store solution has also helped them gain insights into what retailers are looking for in a C&C solution.
