Chronodrive trials digital shopping list

Chronodrive trials digital shopping list

French Chronodrive has launched a new device called Hiku, which allows consumers to quickly create shopping lists full of items they can immediately order and pick up at a Chronodrive point.

Launch by the end of the year

The device has to connect to wireless internet to allow bar codes to be scanned which in turn will add products to a shopping list. If required, customers can talk to the device to add certain items. The list is then transferred immediately to a smartphone or tablet app and from there customers can order the items to be picked up at a drive.

 

100 loyal Chronodrive customers will trial the Hiku this summer and the device should have a full launch by the end of 2014 or maybe the beginning of 2015. Chronodrive has not mentioned a possible price for the device which strongly resembles the Amazon Dash.
