Carrefour expands robotic fleet

By Retail Technology | Wednesday February 24 2021 | UPDATED 23.02.21

Supermarket chain Carrefour has expanded its robotic fleet adding 11 more Tally Robots across its UAE stores

Tally was the first robot to be employed by a retailer in the Middle East, successfully increasing efficiency and supporting the growth of the online grocery segment for the brand.

The robots are equipped with cameras and sensors that make them capable of scanning up to fifteen thousand products, three times a day, checking for any stock errors, such as out of stock items, price mismatch, wrong barcodes, or stock misplacement. They assist with stock audits using a sophisticated system of artificial intelligence, which support in reducing the workload for store team members.

Philippe Peguilhan, country manager of Carrefour UAE at Carrefour owner Majid Al Futtaim Retail, said: “Majid Al Futtaim is committed to pioneering tomorrow’s retail, and we are constantly working to better our processes, enhance our efficiency and digitise our operations in the region. This is exactly what Tally Robot has achieved.”
