Harris Teeter Updates Mobile Device
Harris Teeter has released an update to "ht mobile," significantly changing its mobile application, both improving existing functions and introducing new features to make it easier for shoppers to use their smartphone to organize their grocery shopping, a new release said.
Harris Teeter launched its first version of ht mobile April 2011, and it included a collection of tools to allow customers to shop using their smartphone. It gave users the option to create shopping lists on their mobile device, view personalized e-VIC offers, browse the company's weekly ad and find Harris Teeter stores.
With the latest version, Harris Teeter built upon its existing ht mobile platform and enhanced features, such as the shopping list, but also introduced new features to make the application more user-friendly and accessible for shoppers, the release said.
The newest version of ht mobile shows vast improvement to not only the visual aspects of the application but the technology behind it as well:
n Updated shopping list, offering access to personalized e-VIC specials and Favorites, the ability to save e-VIC coupons, bar code scanning technology and auto complete search capabilities
n Enhanced store locator, adding GPS technology and driving directions
n Ability to view your list offline
n Seamless integration with your desktop shopping list
n Text message notification and ability to pre-order subs and sliced meats and cheeses, in select stores
n Ability to refill or transfer prescriptions using a Harris Teeter pharmacy
The company is also committed to the evolution of ht mobile and will continue to add new features, including a recipe function that allows shoppers to choose a specific recipe through ht mobile that will then automatically populate the shopping list when instructed, the release said.
