Kroger has enjoyed an unprecedented 44 quarters of consecutive growth, attributed in large part to the company’s Customer 1st strategy. In the digital world, Kroger continues to focus on the customer experience, but often that means innovating internally at a high level. As senior director of research and development at Kroger, Brett Bonner is responsible for the invention and development of high-value systems for the nation’s largest traditional grocery company. Bonner will discuss the Internet of Things at Progressive Grocer’s Connected Consumer Summit in May, focusing on the importance of connecting internally – think everything from no wait times at checkout, scales communicating with mobile apps, and connecting the wireless language of multiple devices to create an optimal shopper experience.
