Texas Jasmine Using Mobile Commerce App to Streamline C-Stores' Ordering

Wholesaler integrates codeREADr with POS

BOSTON & HOUSTON -- Texas Jasmine, a wholesaler servicing more than 5,000 independent convenience store customers in the Texas region, and Skycore LLC, developer of the codeREADr barcode scanning and validation platform, have announced the immediate availability of Texas Jasmine's Smartphone Ordering App for c-stores.

The app enables participating Texas Jasmine customers to place stocking orders using nothing more than their smartphones.

Store managers use the smartphone's camera to rapidly scan, validate and record the UPC barcodes of ordered items. After each scan the order quantity is entered and later the completed order is directly uploaded from the phone to Texas Jasmine's point-of-sale (POS) system.

"Our app cuts the time in half for placing stocking orders and it's far more accurate than the old paper and fax method," said Jim Momin, general manager of Texas Jasmine. "The app is easy to use and there's no capital expense for commercial scanning hardware or software."

The branded app is powered by Skycore's codeREADr platform. Texas Jasmine integrated codeREADr with its database and backend system to create a seamless solution for customers.

"Texas Jasmine is the first wholesaler we've seen enable their customers to use smartphones for conducting B2B mobile commerce," said Rich Eicher, CEO of Skycore.

Boston-based Skycore, a leading mobile service provider since 2003, offers platforms to generate, deliver, read and process data embedded in 1D/2D barcodes.

Texas Jasmine, Houston, is a leading wholesaler supplying affordable, quality products to independently owned convenience and grocery stores in Texas and the surrounding area since 1992.
