UK: Gomez Rates Tesco as Best Overall Internet SUPER-Market
The Internet Supermarket Scorecard represents the best of current e-grocery services available in the UK. Of the 6 online supermarket firms that met Gomez's minimum criteria, Tesco topped the scorecard followed by Sainsbury's and Foodferry.com. The highest rated sites offered the most robust online capabilities, widest product selection, and home delivery. Gomez scorecards are designed to give consumers the confidence to transact online and also help e-businesses develop stronger customer relationships.

"Many large UK supermarkets have turned to the Internet to deliver more value to their existing customer base and to ring up incremental sales from Internet-hungry shoppers whose current grocer doesn't offer an online solution", says Matt Stamski, senior retail analyst for Gomez. "While there are only 6 players on this Scorecard, the competition is fierce, as is proven by the sophisticated efforts of the supermarkets compared to other e-tailing channels."
The Scorecard examines each site through the same lens and breaks down the online experience into distinct categories, such as Ease Of Use, Relationship Services and Onsite Resources. Shoppers and professionals can sort the rankings based upon these categories to help them find the sites best equipped to suit their needs. In the wake of recently reinitiated price wars, sites that deliver the greatest convenience and value for money both online and offline will win out.
