Building your first grocery shopping cart online is a tedious task that drives people away from online. With Speechly, creating a shopping cart is as easy as “Two litres of milk, bread, tomatoes and a six-pack of beer”

SOK, Finland’s largest grocery store cooperative, had developed an e-commerce store for their increasingly digitally savvy customers. However allowing their customers to build their regular grocery shopping baskets from their over 90,000 SKUs proved to be relatively slow and cumbersome for their customers.

To make the shopping experience easier, SOK used Speechly technology to build a voice-enabled shopping basket iOS application called “S-ostoslista” that contains over 90,000+ grocery and general merchandise SKUs. Users can use the app to create, share and buy their shopping lists using their voice.


New customers to online channels

While grocery online shopping is growing fast, most people still haven’t ever purchased groceries online. Intuitive and efficient creation of grocery shopping cart enabled SOK to gain new customers.
