RETAIL and E-COMMERCE

Thrive in the new omnichannel landscape with flexible fulfillment automation

Soaring demand forces retail and E-Commerce fulfillment operations to evolve

Retail sales are growing and E-Commerce is becoming a larger percentage of those total sales.

With an increase in split-case and eaches picking, retail fulfillment needs to be more agile and efficient. The restraints of traditional fulfillment picking solutions – static and manual – conflict with retailers' need to build a successful omnichannel experience that includes dark stores, buy online pick up in store (BOPIS) and other fulfillment methods preferred by today's consumer.

6 River Systems' floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall fulfillment capabilities, including our autonomous mobile robot, Chuck, enable operations to pop up fulfillment automation without changing existing infrastructure. Our solution helps you speed up order cycles, attract, train and retain associates, lower the cost of fulfillment, and deliver a best-in-class customer experience.

Attract, train and retain associates

It's difficult to hire and wages are increasing, which means training and time to productivity are more expensive. Not only is Chuck a magnet for new talent, but training time is reduced to minutes.

With 6 River Systems' system-directed picking to guide associates through more efficient and accurate pick runs, and Chuck eliminating the need to push or pull a heavy cart over the "long walk," it's also easier to keep your team happy and healthy.
