Computers help us in the supermarkets in many different ways such as: 1. The use of credit cards.- This is actually a computer program that causes this exchange to be possibl…e. 2. The totaling of the price a customer is required to pay for their items. 3. The subtraction of the price cost from the given amount paid. (Helps with change.) 4. The track keeping of income and what items were sold. 5. To help the manager to know when certain items have to be bought again.. it keeps a record of how much of the items were sold and how much a left in stock.
mini sat navs on the trolleys to take you to items mini calculators built into the trolleys and baskets to keep track of how much your shopping has come to so then you dont go… over your budget loyalty cards self service machines
Supermarkets use computers for many things. In the office they usea computer for scheduling, keeping track of money, and keepingtrack of all the shipments expected and what's …supposed to be onthem. On the sales floor you have cash registers. Those are computerisedthese days. They are programmed to know how much each and everyitem on stock costs, how to do the math, how to do coupons, etc.Also on the sales floor there's hand readers that will tell theprice of various items and when stockers stock something they putin how many of the item they put on the shelf after scanning itinto the reader. In the stock room they use the hand readers to do inventory as itcomes in off the trucks. They also have a computer in back thatthey use to print the price tags and do their invetory counts ofthe whole store room on a monthly basis.
it helps to make the supermarket more effective and efficient when holding information about products
here is an exp. i will go to the supermarket with my mom to buy chicken :)
scanning barcodes on products that pass through the checkout kiosk
It's not. Haha. Many people such as the person above^^^answer questions like this "It's not. Haha." Well it is. How do you know where your food came from? Well! That's right…, it's all biology. being organic means nothing has tampered with the food CELL! While not being organic means someone HAS tampered with the foods cell! yep biologists have to figure out how to screw up the food cell so you can die sooner! Actually a company named Monsantos has geneticaly modified each and every soybean in the world making your DNA weaker and weaker. In the next few decades our children will suffer majorly because Monsantos wants to fatten cows so they can make more money. Our lives are at risks!Most corn products are genetically modified also. And believe me people, corn is in over HALF the food we eat daily. EAT ORGANIC!!
People from almost all occupations and vocations can benefit from using spreadsheets. All major companies and a lot of smaller ones do use spreadsheets. It is useful in budget…s, accounting, graphing and a lot of clerical work. Just about anyone can find a use for spreadsheets Supermarkets use spreadsheets to keep track of finances i.e. sales, losses and money spent. They also use spreadsheets to work out queuing times and what are the best number of checkouts to have open at any one time during the day. They may use spreadsheets to keep track of stock which will help them find stock in the stockroom. Supermarkets may also use spreadsheets to keep track of the items they sell, the value of the items, the profit made on each item and more importantly, the commission they have earned! The might have a list of customers with a club card, and the products they purchase. They might Use it to locate other stores with phone numbers, etc. Or where they can find other stock. List of suppliers with details? When they will begin to sell other products. What days they are open, and what are the most popular times.
Information communication technology (ICT) is used in supermarkets by keeping the freezers cold (digital control) reduce time and speed up serving of customers (getting comput…ers to read bar-codes instead of typing in a string of numbers manually) and security. (computer calibrated computer controlled magnetic detectors for protection of booze/clothes/expensive goods)
Bar codes are used to uniquely identify a specific type of item in the store. This eases checkout because the price can be automatically looked up. It eases inventory …because whenever an item is sold and leaves the store, the known quantity of stock decreases. This makes tracking supply, sales, and sales trends of specific items easier.
Advantages: You could find anything you could imagine (maybe not everything because someone from latin America wouldn't be able to find their speciality foods in an American… supermarket). But overall, it's sort of a one stop shop, especially in a city where there are thousands of people living in an environment. So it becomes easier and faster for people to buy what they need and still be able to meet their time frame. Disadvantages: What you may find in the supermarkets might not exactly be fresh. Especially if you have the same people working in the meats working in the produce working then in the dairy. It may lead to cross contamination although it may seem unlikely that this could happen but then again could be possible. Also the vegetables may not exactly be fresh and because we've all witnessed how many fruits and vegetables seem past due which consists to the reason why most times they are placed in lower cost. Economically: Supermarkets may not be suitable for lower populated areas simply because the cost may outweigh the demand for supplies, so small corner stores may be more suitable. Also if there is a large supermarkets, smaller stores have to be competing for prices and sometimes large supermarkets can afford to lower their merchandise cost because they will gain money due to the large quantities of demand they may receive. Which then in turn smaller stores may have to raise their prices to meet their cost.
It is hard to say which kind of shop is better. Both a corner shop and a supermarket has many advantages and disadvantages. The corner shop is generally small and has …friendly staff. Because it is not as big you cannot find there sophisticated products as you can find in supermarket. The staff usually know you very well. They know what are your favourite products, they can put aside things that you want to buy but do not have enough money now. It is very nice and useful. But in the other hand it is very hard to keep something in secret. For example it is realy difficult to buy beer, cigarettes or condoms in order to shop assistant did not tell your mother or gossip about you. The supermarket is bigger than the corner shop and is better equipped. More people goes to these kind of shop. Everybody is anonymous for shop assistant. Price of a lot of products is very low. The competition of supermarkets is very good for customer. But despite these advantages the supermarkethas also got few disadvantages. A lot of products are not fresh. They lie on the shelfs and wait for a customer. Sometimes they can wait very, very long... Short-term products like bread or milk have to be in refrigerator but sometimes they are much too long there and past the sell-by date. The shop assistant often writes a new date and the product is "fresh" again... To sum up there are many advantages and disadvantages of the supermarket and the corner shop. I do not have my favourite kind of shop. Sometimes I go to the supermarket or the corner shop. It depends on the kind of product I want to buy.
These are the main advantages: To save large amount of dataCost savingTime savingTake up to date decisionMaintain up to date records
Like any other business, there are many things a supermarket needs to keep track of. For example, their employees and what shifts they are scheduled to work. The database can …also be used to track inventory and suppliers.
