TORONTO – June 5, 2019Mercatus, a leading provider in digital commerce solutions for grocery and other retail verticals, and ShopperKit, the first enterprise class software built specifically for in-store grocery fulfillment, today announced a partnership to help grocers more efficiently execute pickup and delivery fulfillment of online orders.

ShopperKit’s in-store fulfillment solution enables Mercatus-equipped stores to quickly receive, prioritize and process orders from retailers’ websites, allowing grocers to offer enhanced in-store pickup or delivery services to their online shoppers. When an order is placed via the retailer’s eCommerce platform, powered by Mercatus’ online and mobile commerce engine, Mercatus routes the order to the store, where ShopperKit’s system drives efficient picking and packing methods. Once the order is fulfilled, Mercatus facilitates the systems behind click & collect orders and partner delivery services for white label delivery.

“We’re excited to partner with Mercatus and help its customers enjoy faster pick times, greater accuracy, increased basket size and more,” said Jack Record, CEO, ShopperKit. “We recognize the strength of the Mercatus digital commerce engine and its success in providing white label delivery solutions. Given our shared goals of creating a better shopping experience via quick and easy fulfillment, better service and increased loyalty, we are confident that this partnership will be an immense success.”

ShopperKit integrates with any Mercatus-equipped online storefront, point of sale or last mile system. Joining Mercatus’ expansive partner network, ShopperKit will enable stores to leverage their existing internal technologies and technologies offered in the Mercatus network, negating the need for overwhelming integrations or massive nightly data and inventory loads. As a result, one immediate benefit is a dramatic reduction in the time it takes to setup a store and train shoppers.

“As retailers continue to invest in click & collect and delivery solutions, an efficient in-store fulfillment strategy is critical to success,” said Sylvain Perrier, president and CEO, Mercatus. “ShopperKit will enhance our customers’ picking processes immensely and continue Mercatus’ ongoing commitment to creating a vast partner network of like-minded technology providers that are focused on making innovative turnkey solutions available in order to meet the business needs of grocers across North America.”
