BJ’s deploys aisle scanning robots
US membership warehouse club operator BJ’s Wholesale Club is deploying new autonomous aisle-scanning vehicles
BJ’s is using robots from Simbe Robotics, known as “Tally,” to collect images of items on store shelves and use the data they record to track stock levels and monitor prices.
Incorporating Simbe’s AI-powered solution into chainwide operations will provide greater visibility into club conditions and deeper business insights, ultimately improving operational efficiencies and enhancing the member experience.
Jeff Desroches, COO BJ’s Wholesale Club, said: “By deploying Tally in all of our club locations, we will gain unprecedented insights which will leverage real-time data, enabling us to continuously improve our operation and ensure that we’re offering the best possible experience to both our team members and members.”
