- 5 july 2011
UK based global grocer Tesco PLC implemented its Home Plus virtual store solution in a South Korean subway station enabling consumers to purchase groceries using their smartphones and have them delivered directly to their homes. Users browsing a virtual display of groceries intended to replicate the aisles of a supermarket can scan a product’s QR codes to place it in their “cart.” Transactions are completed online with a home delivery immediately following purchase.
After implementing its Home Plus virtual grocery store solution, Tesco has seen its online sales rise over 130%.
