Starting this month, BlackBerry 10 is the mobile platform of choice for Canadian Tire Employees. The nationwide deployment will bring thousands of devices to managers across all Canadian Tire stores as well as a group of sports stores: Sport Chek, Sports Expers, National Sports and Atmosphere.
Canadian Tire developed a mobile app for BlackBerry three years ago and it quickly became one of Canada’s most popular mobile apps. The app allowed customers to browse flyers, browse products, make shopping lists, scan barcodes, as well as check to see if an item was in stock at a specific location. Last year the retailer counted over 20 million visits to it’s mobile presence; an impressive figure considering Canada’s population of 35 million.
