Schnucks And World Wide Technology Mark Partnership Milestone With App Launch That Transforms Customers' Shopping Experience

ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

World Wide Technology (WWT), a market-leading technology solution provider, today announced the successful completion of the first phase of a multi-year partnership with Schnuck Markets, Inc., a third-generation, family-owned grocery/pharmacy retailer, in the development, launch and ongoing expansion of the Schnucks Rewards app and program. The relationship between the two St. Louis-based companies further demonstrates the increased focus on digital transformation and disruption that companies across all industries are undertaking to provide customers with the most seamless and delightful experiences possible.

Shortly after launching last month, the app broke into the “top free shopping” category in the Google Play store. Planned updates to the app in the coming months include features that enhance service department experiences, demonstrating Schnucks’ ongoing commitment to customer service.

“In today’s climate of digital disruption, retailers are seeking to create a more rewarding and frictionless experience for their customers to remain competitive,” said Josh Hogan, managing director - Digital, WWT. “The Schnucks Rewards app is just the first milestone of a long-term commitment to provide a faster, more frictionless experience for Schnucks shoppers. WWT was thrilled to partner with such an iconic local brand to help them not only develop their strategy but also execute on their vision for a more seamless customer experience, and we look forward to continuing to work with Schnucks on their digital transformation journey.”

“Finding a global technology leader to guide us through our digital transformation really helped to cement this partnership,” said Dave Peacock, president and chief operating officer, Schnuck Markets, Inc. “It is important to us to reward our customers for choosing us and this new program not only does that, but delivers a simple and frictionless experience.”

In the coming months, Schnucks and WWT will continue to work together to strategically expand and build upon the current app by releasing features that will provide even better in-store and online experiences for Schnucks customers, and further improve upon the overall shopping experience.
