Why are retailers fast-tracking in-store robotic automation technologies?

The global pandemic left retailers scrambling for solutions to address labor and productivity challenges, as well as enhanced cleaning expectations.

One technology that proved its value during the crisis: autonomous mobile robots, which are being used for everything from floor cleaning to shelf scanning.

In this exclusive survey, retailers sound off on how COVID-19 has changed their view of the importance of in-store robotics. Get the survey results as part of a new eBook, “Robots in Retail: Examining the Autonomous Opportunity.”

In this eBook, you will learn:

  • Why nearly half (47%) of all retailers plan to have an in-store robotic automation project underway in the next 18 months
  • Specific factors from the pandemic that changed the way retailers think about in-store robotic automation
  • What retailers see as the most pressing problems that robotic automation can solve
  • Why 72% of retailers expect little reduction in consumer expectations for cleanliness even with the introduction of vaccines

The winners in the retail sector will be those who understand the implications of automation and act quickly to respond to them.
