Why Automate?

It's no secret that click-and-collect systems save time, and in the era of social distancing, customers have quickly grown accustomed to them. However, many grocers are having difficulties transitioning since installing these systems can take a significant amount of time and manpower. During this transition, grocers face the added difficulty of meeting food and safety regulations.

The AerNode provides an automated storage solution with temperature-controlled compartments and multiple pickup terminals. A compartment's temperature and humidity can be monitored live, ensuring that food safety regulations are met. Bulk-loading features allow a single employee to fill many orders quickly, and streamlined, error-free pickups will improve customer satisfaction.

To retrieve their orders, customers will be sent a pickup PIN via email or sms with no signup required, giving them a convenient and smooth pickup experience. The AerNode can also support many types of containers and bins, making it easy for grocers to simply add it on to their existing BOPIS process. AerNode installation and training is done in 24-48 hours with almost no downtime. Compare that to other solutions which take weeks or months to get up and running.
