ATLANTA -- Gimme is rolling out a new app for the management of micromarkets and a new inventory-automation software designed for micromarkets and traditional vending machines. The Atlanta-based tech company said the latest additions to its product suite will continue to streamline productivity and profitability for its customers.
Dubbed "Markets," the new mobile app is built specifically to service and manage micromarkets, allowing drivers to inventory markets twice as fast as before, even in areas without a cell signal, according to the company.
Whether route drivers are servicing vending machines, micromarkets, or both, the new app saves time by allowing them to use the same device to service their entire route. According to Gimme, the time it takes to fully inventory a micromarket is decreased by more than 50%, with nanomarkets taking less than 15 minutes to inventory.
"Our Markets app speeds up drivers at each market account," said Gimme cofounder and chief customer officer Evan Jarecki. "This speed is driven by automatically variable inventory spot checks, a simplified user interface, and a native app that doesn't require cell service tapping from product to product."
The Gimme Market app puts market pick lists into a simple list view, allowing users to make additions or subtractions to product counts on-the-go. This increases accuracy of products going into the market, in case an error was made during the picking process.
Other features and benefits include:
>> Automatically variable spot check inventories that identify the products that most likely contribute to shrink, whether high theft or high volume.
>> Runs as a native mobile app, not Web-based. Thus, drivers aren't waiting for individual pages to load.
>> Training process is simplified for new market drivers.
>> The new product is $20 per market per month, with an introductory price available to customers who bundle the Markets app with Gimme's vending products, at $10 per market per month.
"We have been part of the Markets app testing from the beginning and are very pleased with the results and the speed in which our drivers can inventory their markets," said Lincoln County Vending (Fayetteville, TN) operations manager Kevin Posey. "There has been a need for an app to make inventory control a lot quicker for the driver and more accurate overall, and this is the perfect solution. It has been extremely simple to implement, and is beyond easy to use. I think the difference between this and the 365 Markets Web app is the speed, and that they never have to wait for pages to load."
Gimme's Markets app is available today for iOS and is compatible with all versions of 365 Retail Markets kiosks. Integrations with other market providers will be announced in early 2019.
