12 great reasons for grocers to use Brightpick for order fulfillment
- Highest ROI and lowest cost per pick of any solution
Brightpick delivers the highest ROI and lowest cost per pick of any solution on the market by offering major savings on labor, the highest throughput per robot, fast deployment and increased storage density.
- Picks groceries with 99.9% accuracy
The Brightpick solution uses Brightpick Autopickers, autonomous mobile picking robots designed specifically for grocery picking. They can robotically pick the vast majority of groceries with 99.9% accuracy, which eliminates human picking errors and reduces picking labor by 95-100%. Their advanced AI algorithms have been trained on more than 250 million picks to date and use machine learning to improve with each pick.
- Delivers higher throughput by picking and consolidating in the aisles
Brightpick Autopickers are the only commercial warehouse robots capable of both picking and consolidating orders in the warehouse aisles. In contrast to other types of automated fulfillment systems, they do not need to travel back and forth to centralized picking stations. This increases throughput and means warehouses need fewer robots to fulfill orders, which reduces traffic.
- Automates your inventory replenishment
Brightpick Autopickers autonomously replenish your inventory by transporting new totes into storage. The totes are always slotted into the most optimal storage location to maximize overall throughput.
- Increases storage density in your warehouses
By implementing Brightpick, grocers can increase storage density in their warehouse by 250%. Brightpick Autopickers can reach as high as 10 feet and operate in much narrower aisles than humans. Storage density can be enhanced even further with the use of mezzanines.
- Easily scales as your business grows
Brightpick works with standard shelving that can be assembled in hours, enabling you to easily expand your warehouse footprint and capacity on demand. This also enables fast deployment and easy integration with any warehouse environment, including existing operations and mezzanines.
- Autonomously dispatches orders
Brightpick Dispatchers, the company’s dispatch robots, retrieve totes with picked items from different picking zones (ambient, fresh, chilled, frozen) and consolidate them into complete orders. After that, the robots autonomously dispatch the orders for delivery, curbside pickup, or in-store pickup.
- Increases throughput during peak hours
With Brightpick, you can pick orders in advance and temporarily hold them in a staging area before they need to be dispatched. This reduces picking volumes during peak hours and smooths them out during the day, which increases overall throughput.
- Works in ambient and chilled zones
Brightpick can be installed in multiple temperature zones, including ambient and chilled. This enables you to automate the majority of your picking process with a single integrated solution.
- Ideal for micro fulfillment centers (MFCs)
The solution is ideal for micro fulfillment centers (MFCs) or back-of-store fulfillment. Brightpick Autopickers are easy to deploy even in space-constrained environments and are suitable for both low- and high-throughput applications; simply add or remove robots based on volumes. With Brightpick, you can automate delivery, curbside pickup or in-store pickup in your MFCs and stores.
- Replenishes MFCs and stores
Brightpick can also replenish MFCs and stores by picking and dispatching inventory from your distribution center. This is especially useful for locations that may need less than full cases of items and helps increase the number of SKUs each location can support.
- The entire robot fleet is orchestrated and optimized
The entire Brightpick robot fleet, be it 10 or 100s of robots, and fulfillment process is orchestrated and optimized by Brightpick Intuition software; including storage, picking, order consolidation, dispatch and replenishment. All you have to do is sit back with a cup of coffee and let Brightpick do the work
