E-Commerce Fulfillment: Click & Collect with Pricer Instant Flash

The most effective way to quickly fulfill online orders is with the sub-one-second (instant) flash, made possible thanks to optical wireless communications.

The online revolution has led to a new problem – fulfillment

When a shopper orders online, he or she expects the goods to be delivered quickly, correctly and at a low cost (if any). This poses a significant problem, especially for grocery where cold-chains have to be maintained. A common solution is to use the existing store network as the local warehouse to fulfill the online orders. For the stores, this means a new revenue stream, but also an additional and quite heavy task. A typical grocery order can take 15-30 minutes to pick, so with hundreds of orders per day, the store is suddenly faced with having to hire a lot of people, which is both costly and not always easy.

How Instant Flash helps Click & Collect operations

Dynamic product positioning

Show the picker where the product is on a map

Route planning optimization

Plan the most optimized route for the picker

Find the product

No need to think, just grab the flashing product

Product finding made easy

With the Pricer system, we assist the picker in finding the product much quicker. The Instant Flash highlights the product to pick, allowing the picker just walk up and take it. Also, the automated product positioning can feed the correct position of every product into the routing algorithm of the picking software, ensuring that the route is always accurate and optimal.

Guided picking

The guided picking is also much easier, which means a reduced need for training and store knowledge. Consequently, staffing becomes easier and much more affordable. Picking assisted by the picking system allows for either an increased volume of picking with the same staff or, for resource-constrained retailers, there is also the possibility to operate with a reduced staff.
