If you want to shop in the hypermarket in the United States, you might share the aisle with Tally, the shelf scanning robot.
Manufactured by Simbe Robotics, Tally is self-contained and scans inventory shelves to facilitate in-store replenishment. The American chain Schnucks is expanding its use of the robot to 62 locations, allowing Tally to scan more than 4.2 million products each day.
Ã¢ â¬ ÅTally-collected data collected by Tally helps retailers such as Schnucks ensure that shelves are stocked, prices are correct and the products customers are looking for are where â¢ expect to beÃ¢ â¬.
“Against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic, Tally was crucial to maintaining the business. Tally was able to keep track of inventory and completion while reducing the amount of time workers have to spend on color, keeping customers happy. “And safe workers,” said Brad Bogolea, co-founder and CEO of Simbe Robotics.
Tally eliminates the mundane task of manually checking products on store shelves.
By using Tally, Schnucks saw a 20% reduction in items that are no longer in stock, and the robot's inventory figures are on average 14 times more accurate than those made by employees.
Over the next two years, Simbe plans to launch another 1,000 Tally robots in the retail industry. Based on this idea, can we hope that retailers operating in Romania will introduce such solutions?
We don't know how easy it would be to implement, but meeting a robot while shopping is not something the Romanian public seems to be doing. to be accustomed to.
Ã¢ â¬ ÅSince the founding of Simbe, we have carefully approached Tally's design to stimulate positive and valuable human-robot interaction for both retailers and buyers. We have created excellent manners – it always gives people the right of way and avoids crowded corridors while strategically scanning the inventory “, according to Bogolea.
