Since 2014, you can visit the SPAR at Station Science Park in Amsterdam for fresh coffee, freshly baked bread, a meal salad or for your daily groceries. In addition to a complete assortment tailored to the needs of its customers, the SPAR also offers extra services so that maximum convenience is provided. In addition to a pastry and lunch service, the supermarket also has a Multi Functional Printer (MFP) available. The SPAR is open from 8.00 to 22.00 and therefore customers can always print, copy or scan nearby. Also outside the regular opening hours of, for example, copy shops.
Test printing in our supermarket
"In cooperation with inepro dealer Smartspaces, we started a trial with a Multifunctional Printer (MFP) a few months ago. We wanted to find out whether having our own MFP in the supermarket would offer added value for our customers and, of course, for SPAR," says Vincent Leighton, owner of Leighton Supermarkets. "Our customer base consists mainly of people who work at companies in the area and students. The outbreak of the Corona virus accelerated the trial. At that time we saw an increase in printing and copying at our location, because many people were working from home and copy shops were closed."
Paying effortlessly with the KUARIO app
For printing, copying and scanning, you can pay contactless with the KUARIO app. "Installing and using the app is easy for our customers. We have also hung up a poster with instructions for use above the MFP. We only have to help out occasionally in case of minor breakdowns. So it's all very user-friendly and maintenance-friendly. The installation was also a piece of cake: the device was placed, connected and it works. In the unlikely event of an error, I can always call and get immediate technical support," says Vincent Leighton.
Insight into transactions
"So far, the experience with the MFP and the use of the KUARIO app in my supermarket has been very positive. And I also intend to use the KUARIO manager in the near future to gain more insight into consumption and transactions," says Vincent Leighton.
