Ahold brings Wi-Fi to all 780 U.S. division stores
NEW YORK — Ahold USA is teaming with Verizon Enterprise Solutions to offer public Wi-Fi for customers at its 780 Stop & Shop New England, Stop & Shop New York Metro, Giant Landover and Giant Carlisle locations.
"Our divisions are focused on the needs of their customers and improving the overall customer experience," said Paul Scorza, chief information officer for Ahold USA. "Verizon Enterprise Solutions has helped them deliver on their 'better place to shop' mission as we were able to bring Wi-Fi to all 780 division stores while increasing network bandwidth that moves data quickly."
According to Ahold USA, Wi-Fi connectivity throughout its stores has been instrumental to tailor offers and promotions to subscribers of its app and Scan It! Mobile feature, which allows customers to use smartphones to scan items for self-serve checkout.
"With this improved store network, we're making it easier for our division customers to smoothly access other technology options like Scan It! Mobile," said Scorza. "With a strong, reliable network, store associates are in a great position to succeed; whether helping a customer with a price, ordering an item, or finding a product, associates can get the job done faster and easier."
