Cutting-Edge Order Fulfilment Technology to Enhance Retail Customer Experience

February 7, 2024


Liisa Walsh, the Director of Product Management at Position Imaging showcases an innovative order fulfilment technology designed to streamline retail pickups. Dubbed “BOPIS solution,” this system integrates seamlessly with point-of-sale (POS) systems, allowing for efficient order preparation and management by staff, referred to as “kickers.” Upon completion, orders are signed into the system, scanned, and customers are notified via text message that their purchase is ready for pickup. Customers can then collect their orders effortlessly by scanning a QR code, which notifies the system of the pickup. This technology, explained by Walsh, aims to enhance the customer experience by reducing wait times and simplifying the pickup process, marking a significant advancement in retail operations.
