Fulfilment tech that optimises existing store space available for pilot in the UK

UK, Southampton, 04/03/2020 ' Forward-thinking retailers are being sought to pilot the latest 'Fulfilment-as-a-Service' (FaaS) technology, which enables them to optimise their existing shop floor space to fulfil eCommerce orders more efficiently. Global commerce services company, PFS, has developed this product to help retailers reduce costs while delivering a better customer experience.

Using PFS' RetailConnectSM solution, retailers can fulfil eCommerce orders directly from their shop floors, without allocating additional space, staffing, hardware or software. This results in fast BOPIS and BOSS fulfilment, including the possibility of same-day delivery, which maximises the omnichannel value of physical stores.

Building a traditional omnichannel order delivery system can be an expensive investment as stores are not equipped with infrastructure for bulk product storage, packing and delivery. They are also not staffed for product picking, packing and delivery processes. RetailConnect negates these issues and seamlessly integrates into the existing store environment

Joe Farrell, vice president of international operations at PFS, comments: 'We've developed this solution to maximise value from existing physical stores. At a time when physical stores are closing due to the rise in eCommerce, optimising brick-and-mortar stores to fulfil eCommerce orders helps to reduce costs and maintain a presence on the high street.'
