The free app, available on both Apple and Android devices, gives the supermarket group’s members access to its ActivHUB secure online portal, which was launched last year.

Retailers can now scan, search and order products, as well as access offers, order and invoice summaries, and keep up to date with company news and announcements.

Kevin Widdrington, IT director for Costcutter Supermarkets Group, said: “ActivHUB has been very well received by our members and ActivMOBILE is the natural next step.

“It’s the latest development in our ongoing drive to help our members harness technology to enhance their store operations. Giving instant access to data, communication and essential day-to-day information, it was developed in close consultation with our retailers.”

ActivMOBILE was developed by Costcutter as part of its ActivTechnology suite and follows ActivOC and ActivHUB.
