Management is often the toughest part of running a business, and seafood markets are no exception. Between labor, software, hardware, customer service, inventory, and more, the time and cost of running a seafood business quickly add up. But worry not—we have a solution.
At Local Express, we can provide you with the tools and technology necessary to streamline management and save money, all while helping you increase sales. So keep reading to find out more about how we can help you increase efficiency and profits.
Software and Hardware: Save Time and Boost Revenue
Software and hardware are seen as expenses, something you might try to cut back on to save money. However, the right hardware and software can actually help you save money plus boost revenue.
We are proud to provide an assortment of robust, intuitive, and powerful tools for your business. These tools are some of the most effective in the industry and will help you save time and increase sales.
For example, our AI merchandising feature can be incredibly beneficial for your time and bottom line. Instead of spending hours merchandising your products, our powerful AI will make the best decisions possible, saving time and increasing sales.
Another example is our new kitchen display system. With this system, you can one-click quickly and efficiently process prepared food orders. The system allows for pre-orders, omnichannel sales, and customization options too, ensuring customers have their needs met while making life easier for you.
Local Express also includes all the features you’d expect, such as a delivery app with plenty of options like BOPIS and curbside, packaging options like dry ice, loyalty programs, coupons, inventory management software, and much more.
And that’s just the beginning. Our next technology is incredibly powerful and has the potential to help you drastically increase your revenue—kiosks.
Kiosks: a Game-Changer for Sales Growth
Our kiosks are a remarkably useful and impactful tool for seafood markets. Though they can do everything you’d expect like processing orders and accessing information, they can also be a huge boon for sales.
We looked at how our kiosks performed in a few stores, and it’s clear that kiosks help boost sales. Let’s focus on three key areas—sales, orders, and average revenue per user (ARPU).
For sales, both stores we looked at had noticeable growth. Store one had a 24% increase in sales over four months, while store two had a whopping 173% over eight months.
Similarly, kiosks had a big impact on orders as well. Store one reported a 24% increase in order value, indicating customers are purchasing more per transaction. Store two experienced a 155% boost in the number of orders over eight months, suggesting kiosks encourage bigger purchases and drive transactions.
Finally, ARPU also saw a smaller but still significant impact. Store one had an 87% increase in only the fourth month, and store two had a 39% increase over 14 months.
Based on the compelling results observed in both stores, it’s evident that kiosk implementation magnifies sales, order values, and the average revenue per user. As a seafood market owner, that’s an opportunity you don’t want to pass up.
Tried and True: a Local Express Success Story from Seafood City
Before wrapping things up, let’s take a look at a business that has used Local Express to take their business to the next level.
Seafood City is a seafood market chain with 33 locations in the US and Canada. They wanted to take their store online prior to the pandemic, but that forced them to adapt quickly. That’s where we come in.
With our help, Seafood City was able to go from 0% of their total sales being online to 27% in just six months. By using our tools and resources—such as customer data, streamlined inventory management, loyalty programs, coupons/promotions, automatic SEO, delivery options, and more—they were able to significantly grow their online presence while boosting sales.
When asked what the greatest asset Local Express provided, Seafood City said:
“They’re willing to work with us Saturdays, Sundays, at night… Most of the big companies would say: ‘Hey, it’s Sunday, we’re not working today.’ But Local Express put in that extra work for us.”
So don’t take it from us; just listen to our satisfied customers who have changed their businesses thanks to our help.
