PayPoint launches Inventory Scan feature for Collect+ app

Welwyn Garden City, 17 June 2019: PayPoint today unveiled a new feature for its free-to-use mobile app, Collect+ StoreScan. Developed from retailer feedback, Inventory Scan allows retailers to scan any parcel in their store - either by its barcode or by OCR and check its status with a quick audit, helping retailers to operate their business more efficiently and identify expired parcels more easily.

Launched in December last year, the free Collect+ StoreScan app enables retailers to process parcels quickly and easily, directly from their mobile device. Available on iOS and Android, the app means that retailers no longer need to process parcel transactions solely via their PayPoint device. Parcel delivery and customer collections can be processed from anywhere in the store, helping to free valuable counter space and reduce customer waiting times.

The Inventory Scan feature is designed to make life easier for retailers, with simple colour-coding and a phone vibration alert to help identify expired parcels.

Lewis Alcraft, Chief Commercial Officer for PayPoint, commented: “It’s important to us that we continue to innovate and enhance the range of services we offer to our convenience retail partners. By listening to feedback given by retailers, we’re delighted to be able to add a new feature to the StoreScan app which not only helps retailers to manage their parcels but also helps them to offer an efficient counter service to their customers. Inventory Scan is just the latest benefit-led feature to improve efficiency in their stores.”

Retailers offering the Collect+ service can download the app, which has had over 2,000 downloads, by searching ‘collect+ storescan’ in the App Store or Google Play.
