Agile Network LLC in Partnership with Scanbuy, Inc. Announces EcoReturn®, an Innovative Mobile Process That Revolutionizes Returns

Agile Network LLC in partnership with Scanbuy, Inc. announced EcoReturn®, an innovative mobile process that revolutionizes returns. EcoReturn® allows consumers to simply scan a QR code located on the original shipping label to return merchandise. The mobile process delivers significant benefits to retailers, including notable savings on return shipping, relevant insights to strengthen consumer engagements, and increased opportunities for environmental stewardship. The innovative technology integrates existing carrier return processes, including UPS, FedEx, USPS, CanadaPost, DHL, and more. EcoReturn® consumers use a mobile device to execute a return in less than one minute, about five times faster than conventional methods. Beyond this, EcoReturn® creates a host of retailer benefits: Better customer service through increased data: Mobile consumer insights deliver personalized messaging for ongoing marketing efforts, such as language, gender, geographic location and more. Cost savings on return shipping: Retailers migrate from paper label based packing slips and return labels, creating substantial savings. Reduction of duplicate inventory: Instant merchant notification of items being returned drastically minimizes the cost of duplicate inventory; and positive environmental impact: EcoReturn® eliminates 100% of the waste created by the relatively obsolete, wasteful paper packing slip and unused return labels. Agile and Scanbuy will be showcasing at Retailer’s Big Show (NRF) January 11-13, 2015.
