The word ‘robot’ can be traced back to as early as the 1920s. The idea that autonomous machines can be built to serve humans is not a new one. And in more recent years, these stories from science fiction have come to fruition – albeit in a much more commercial fashion.

Robots are already becoming a significant part of everyday life and retail is primed to benefit from these new technologies. Applications like store cleaning, inventory delivery, and shelf scanning are becoming more and more commercially available. And a growing number of retailers are already taking advantage of these solutions to free up store staff, improve customer experience, and incorporate analytics into their operations.

The value of automation, particularly in the case of cleaning, has come to the forefront in light of the recent health crisis. And when you think about your store estate beyond the coronavirus crisis – five, 10 or even 20 years from now – where do you imagine robotics will step up and increase operational efficiencies even more?

In this webinar, sponsored by Brain Corp, you will learn how robotic solutions can help create a strong and resilient future store estate:

  • What will the store look like in the next 10 years and where do analysts predict robotics will play a crucial role in updating the store we know and love today?
  • How can robotics help stores get back to operating in a “new normal” in a post-COVID world?
  • How can autonomous machines help keep stores clean and reassure customers of their safety?
  • What type of data is provided by a retail robot, and how can store managers properly leverage it?
  • How do you go about managing the different autonomous applications across your store estate? And what do you need to consider when embarking on a robotics roll out?
