How One Company is Innovating Online Order Pickups in Stores

One of the largest trends in retail is the modern consumer’s desire for flexible, frictionless and automated experiences – without getting in the way of the experience, itself.

Retailers and solutions-providers are responding to this desire with near-constant innovations, providing ways for consumers to, when in-store, choose items and check out without ever taking out a payment method, and, when shopping online, go from “I need that!” to “Got it!” more efficiently than ever.

To that end, solutions have been developed that expand on concepts like the already-in-place Amazon Go, including using computer vision and laser guidance to speed up and automate the process of picking up online orders.

Position Imaging is leading the charge in the space, as the company’s iPickup solution, which is already in-use at retailers like Tractor Supply, is working to push the experience of picking up online orders forward.

The solution has implications outside the world of retail, as well – educational spaces, corporate environments and more can leverage this kind of cutting-edge automation to boost their own efficiency.
