Ahold Czech Republic, operating under the Albert banner, is the largest retail brand in the Czech Republic. Its 300-plus stores offer a huge choice of grocery items, with a focus on fresh products, and are known for their friendly staff and good value. More than 17,000 employees serve several hundred thousand customers every day.
Through partnership with U&Sluno, Ahold Czech Republic deployed Symphony RetailAI’s Store Operations and Store Mobility solutions, which has enabled the retailer to:
- Gain 30 percent of savings in store back office operations
- Drastically reduced training for users
- Removed manual processes and initiated automation
- Anticipated savings when fully implemented between 10-20 percent
The new Store Mobility solution incorporates all key store operations onto a single device, automating and simplifying processes. With the revamped user interface, all our staff find it easy to use – from the youngest to the oldest – reducing training costs and improving productivity.
