80% of shoppers agree that quality of fresh produce is the single most important factor when choosing a grocery store (FMI 2018). So why do most retailers continue to inspect their produce with manual, pen and paper inspections or “smart” excel forms? These processes slow down receiving, make it difficult to find and communicate information, and make it nearly impossible extract actionable insights.
