PULSE Integration in partnership with Locai Solutions and Cuhaci & Peterson announces their omni-channel concept store-of-the-future. The companies will be presenting the full concept at the Groceryshop Conference, taking place September 15th-18 at the Venetian in Las Vegas, NV. Attendees can visit booth 426 to learn more about the future concept design.
Using locai’s digital commerce platform, customers can shop their grocer’s aisles via in-store kiosks, mobile phones or their desktops and have their groceries picked and packed via the AutoStore system within minutes. Given the speed of the AutoStore system, shoppers can place their order in the store and within minutes have their order available for pick-up while they wait, enjoy experiencing a grocer’s prepared food service or shop for other items they may prefer to handle on their own. The AutoStore system will also serve as the fulfillment hub for online shoppers in the area giving the grocer a more profitable fulfillment solution while improving inventory control and reducing congestion in the store aisles.
With the highest density ratio of any goods-to-person system on the market, PULSE Integration’s AutoStore solution can increase the storage capacity from a company’s current building or move the DC to a city center location to obtain speedy shipment times and worthwhile cost savings. AutoStore is the very definition of space efficiency as it delivers the highest storage density ratio of any ASRS. Clients can achieve four times the storage capacity within the same footprint as with manual storage, and, in many cases, double the storage capacity compared to other goods-to-person systems.
"I can’t emphasize enough the flexibility and performance of the AutoStore System. Being an integrator for shuttle-based systems and other robotic material handling systems, none of them come close to AutoStore’s capabilities in terms of flexibility, scalability and storage density. We’re thrilled to partner with both locai and Cuhaci & Peterson to bring these capabilities to the grocery industry.” - Chris Paulsen, CEO of PULSE Integration
