HY-VEE X SIMBE ROBOTICS
As result of the Covid-19 pandemic the need for technoloy specialised on automation of store inventory and procurement has risen. The supermarket chain Hy-Vee and the automation technology expert Simbe Robotics teamed up to meet this demand and developed a shelf-scanning robot calles Tally. Tally robots are already employed in various Hy-Vee’s U.S. grocery stores and aim at enhancing the in-store experience for customers and staff alike. The retail robots do so by providing real-time data on products’ stock levels, locations and correct pricing. This empowers sales associates as it provides them actionable data and frees up their time which they can then use to consult customers.
