"Electronic check" in Foxtrot – the winner of Smart Awards Ukraine 2020
The group of companies "Foxtrot" was awarded the diploma of the winner in the Smart Retail category for the product "Electronic Check" for the championship among retailers of home appliances and electronics in the implementation of software from the company Checkbox (sRSO)
The winners of the National Competition for Successful Digital Projects Smart Awards Ukraine 2020 were awarded in early March 2021. Jury members praised the determination and timeliness of the company's actions in launching online and offline Foxtrot sRSO from Checkbox with the transition to cash registers and issuance electronic fiscal checks instead of paper ones.
Online cash registers have been introduced in the Foxtrot in several stores of the network since September last year. The full launch of the "cash register in a smartphone" started on November with scaling to all 162 outlets and the online store FOXTROT.UA, and now the company is already receiving its profits.
– In four months of project implementation, more than 30% of traditional cash registers have been replaced by software. That is, at least a third of our customers have become active participants in the digitalization of the brand, – says Olexiy Zozulya, CEO of Foxtrot. – Also, in addition to optimizing operational work (simplification of the trading process, reducing the fiscalization process, unloading functionality and increasing the efficiency of staff in its communication with the buyer), we have economic and environmental benefits. Only at the first stage of electronic check we saved 101 km funds for its purchase and maintenance of cash registers, thereby reducing the impact of business on the environment.
During this time, the work on maintaining the reliability of online check storage has been improved: special storage has been organized in the buyer's personal account on the FOXTROT.UA, where he can go to his phone number to see the entire history of purchases and online checks. We will remind, right after payment for the goods the electronic check is sent to the client on Viber or the sms, and also is duplicated on e-mail of the buyer. At his request, when buying in the store, the check can be printed directly at the checkout.
– It was a complex project from the point of view of automation, however, it gave the business significant competitive advantages, – said Vyacheslav Nekhoroshykh, CIO of Foxtrot Group. – It is fully in line with the concept and program of digitalization, the course of which is currently followed by the Foxtrot brand in order to maintain a leading position in the market of electronics and home appliances.
Foxtrot plans to completely switch to sRSO in 2021, as the issuance of a fiscal check is a legal requirement and a competitive advantage, and the issuance of an online check is a convenience and economic feasibility.
The National Smart Awards Ukraine 2020 competition was attended by companies that have implemented projects in the field of automation and digitalization in the fields of industry, economy, energy, medicine, IIoT and Industry 4.0.
