PALO ALTO, Calif. — Aisle411, a mobile retail navigation service, on Tuesday announced that its virtual mapping and navigation smartphone application is available to use in all of Walgreens' 7,907 drug stores nationwide.
With Aisle411's in-store mapping platform, customers can use their smartphones to view maps of any Walgreens store, allowing shoppers to locate products down to a particular section of each aisle. Walgreens is the first national retailer with all of its stores mapped in a mobile application, Aisle411 stated.
"Retailers are constantly looking for solutions to enhance their customer's store visits and improve convenience," stated Nathan Pettyjohn, CEO of Aisle411. "Aisle411 allows retailers to empower their shoppers by providing information, such as product locations, right in customers' hands, making the shopping experience more convenient and fun."
Nearly 84% of shoppers have difficulty finding products on store shelves, and more than 20% of shoppers leave the store without their full purchase intent, Aisle411 discovered in a recent consumer survey. The Aisle411 app is available for free from the iPhone App Store and the Google Play store.
