Are grocery retailers properly catering to mobile shoppers?

It’s no secret that people commonly use smartphones while in-store, however a new report has revealed the extent to which mobile devices influence the purchase journey for grocery shoppers.

A survey of 1,400 people who were logged into Wi-Fi hotspots found that 83% of respondents use a smartphone or tablet to prepare their shopping list, while 59% use a mobile device to search for recipes.

Almost two-thirds (64%) of respondents then use their smartphone while in-store to help them shop.

The data is obviously skewed to only include people using some sort of mobile device, however it is a useful indicator of how connected consumers buy groceries.

Mobile is almost as popular as desktop for travel research: report

When researching their next holiday or business trip consumers are just as likely to turn to their mobile device as they are to use a laptop, according to new research from JiWire.

However laptops are still by far the most popular device when it comes to actually making a purchase.

The new report into mobile’s role in the travel industry shows that 56% of consumers use their laptop to research travel options, compared to 49% on tablet and 48% on smartphone.

This underlines the fact that travel agents and hotels need to have a mobile optimised site or app to cater for changing consumer behaviours.
