IKEA’s mobile app will get scan option

IKEA has launched a mobile app with a scan option, which will allow customers to create shopping lists more easily. Currently the app is only able to display product information in stores, not to scan them.

Scan article numbers

Consumers can now look up product by product classification or through the search function. They then immediately see the availability of the actual store and how to construct the product. If someone wants the product, it can be added to a shopping cart when the article number is scanned.

 

This new scan option should allow users to check items when they put them in their cart. Scanning the barcode or the article number will tick the article’s box on the shopping list.

 

IKEA has also thought about those customers without a data subscription for their smartphone or tablet. The local wifi can be used, free of charge. The updated app, with scan option, can be downloaded through the App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android).
