Retailers are racing to meet the growing demand of Buy Online Pickup in Store (BOPIS) shoppers, which currently accounts for more than half of all U.S. shoppers. While it unlocks additional foot traffic and revenue for stores, it also causes numerous challenges around logistics, training and customer satisfaction while fulfilling orders.
Advancements in wearable technology can help retailers unlock new customer value while reducing associated costs with implementation. By combining Skylight’s vision picking solutions with smart glasses and bluetooth ring scanners, retailers are seeing pick rates in their stores and warehouses improve by 15-40%. Associates receive key information related to each pick directly in their line of sight, including picklists, item location and quantity. Skylight also integrates with your order fulfillment software to make sure that the picker and the system of record stay in sync.
