As the group confirmed to the LZ, dm has started developing its own Scan&Go solution. The system from the manufacturer Snabble had previously been tested in selected branches. According to dm, this was only used by a few people, but they still want to continue the project.
The drugstore giant sees a change in customer behavior for the future. People would already “do everything with their cell phones”. The likelihood that consumers will also want to scan with their mobile phones in the future is therefore considered to be high.
So far it is unclear whether the smartphone apps can prevail over the professional scanners that developers have been working on for years. Ultimately it will probably depend on how mature the mobile phone systems will be in a few years.
