med succes at integrere omni-channel alt på lager med virtual shelf

Pelckmans - Virtual Shelf

With more than 50,000m2 and more than 100 employees, spread over three locations, "Vijver- en Tuincentrum Pelckmans" is the largest and cheapest indoor garden centre in Belgium. The enormous range of products creates various challenges when it comes to arranging the floor space. In order to solve this problem, Skan Retail was approached to help set up a "virtual shelf" solution.

Click & Collect
With over 30,000 products in the shop, there is something for every fish or garden lover at Pelckmans garden centres. However, the entire Product Range cannot be shown since floor space is not always available for exceptional products like the many different types of garden sheds. For this reason, Pelckmans supplemented its range in the garden centres with an online webshop at an early stage. By now more than 53,000 products are offered online, and they can be picked up at one of the garden centres in Turnhout, Lommel or Rijkevorsel by means of Click & Collect.

"Virtual shelf”
Pelckmans would of course prefer to show all online products to the shoppers that visit the garden centres. So it is understandable that setting up the floors is a challenge, because therer simply isn't enough space to exhibit all the products.
That is why the create of a "virtual shelf" was needed to that allows customers direct access to the entire product range. A tailor made BLUE FIRE kiosk was created by Skan Retail that runs special developed software by Pelckmans. With the self-service kiosks, the online offer is made accessible on the spot at any of the garden centres. In addition, the kiosks form an information point where stock can be viewed by scanning a product. The customer can then place an order that can be picked up using the previous mentioned the Click & Collect system.

Training staff
Successfully integrating an omni-channel concept such as "virtual shelf" is more likely to succeed if the staff can offer support in introducing it. At Pelckmans, they understand very well and that is why they have introduced staff training for the interactive kiosks. In this way, the kiosks can be used to provide extra service to customers.

At Pelckmans, the integration of an interactive kiosk is part of the digitisation process within the company. At the moment the kiosk is still printing a receipt when placing an order. In the future, however, this will have to be paper-free and will function for 100% by connecting it to a customer account and an app. This is not only more environmentally friendly, but also provides important customer data that can be used to improve the (personal) offer for the customer.
