Schnuck Markets: Delivering freshness more efficiently with help from Chrome Enterprise
Schnuck Markets, a chain of 112 grocery stores in five states, wanted to improve customer service while also getting people through checkout lines faster. Paper-based inventory processes slowed down workers, as did the work computers located far away from employees and long device logins. Chrome Enterprise and Chromebooks have helped Schnucks to go paperless and streamline sales and ordering processes.

Reinventing productivity with Chrome Enterprise
With help from IT partner Agosto, Schnuck Markets distributed several Acer Spin Chromebooks to each store for a total of 700 company-wide. Chromebooks’ quick setup and security features mean new deployments take only a few days, with security built into the ChromeOS. Fresh food department heads now place orders on Google Forms customized with Apps Script and store them in Google Drive, eliminating slow and wasteful paper processes.
The ability to share devices is one of the things we love about Chromebooks. If someone needs a Chromebook, it doesn’t matter if it’s theirs. They can grab any one of them, log into it, and it acts and feels exactly like the one that they left at their desks.
