The Future of Convenience.
The World’s First Intelligent Commerce Network
Convenience is evolving.
Consumer expectations around the delivery of goods has rapidly evolved over the past several years, forcing companies to shrink delivery times from next-day down to as little as 30 minutes. The overwhelming demand for this service has ushered in new opportunities to transform traditional e-commerce delivery into an always-on, always-available, concept called intelligent commerce.
Accel Robotics is powering the world's most efficient intelligent commerce network, combining 24/7 checkout-free shopping with ultrafast, on-demand delivery to meet consumers' rapidly evolving expectations.
Traditional models of convenient commerce are inefficient.
Traditional commerce models rely heavily on costly labor, legacy warehousing and inventory technologies, and environmentally damaging logistics. By deploying proprietary computer vision technology and machine learning-powered capabilities across a network of automated stores, we’re transforming intelligent commerce into a modern, scalable, and environmentally sustainable business.
The Ultimate in Convenience
We’re bringing convenience closer to consumers with a network of tech-enabled store formats. Our efficient network model revolutionizes traditional delivery economics by dramatically reducing cost per order with low Capex, faster and more accurate order fulfillment, high engagement and retention, and a distributed labor force across an entire network of stores.
Hub Stores are a key component to making intelligent commerce profitable. With our AI perception and patented hardware system, we eliminate the need for traditional checkout duties, freeing employees to service ultrafast delivery to customers while in-store shoppers enjoy the convenience of checkout-free shopping.
Hub stores are flexible in size, optimally suited for shoppable inventory space, and perfect for existing or new property buildouts. Designed as central distribution nodes for a networked commerce platform, Hub Stores fulfill orders to customers in the surrounding area and serve as inventory distribution centers for adjacent satellite stores. In addition, Hub stores provide an expanded selection of merchandise for delivery beyond what is available in the shoppable space.
Satellite Stores feature a modular design and smaller footprint to fit into spaces not suitable for a full walk-in experience. The Satellite shopping experience is superior to traditional vending machines with a full selection of grocery items and the ability to support natural shopping behaviors like picking up items and putting them back, and shopping for multiple items at one time.
Optimized Local Fulfillment
Our next-generation micro-fulfillment centers (MFCs) are strategically-located sites that extend our proprietary delivery service to a broader audience of shoppers in urban centers with an expanded catalog of additional food and grocery inventory.
Our MFCs operate on AR’s proprietary computer vision-powered software and hardware system and set a new industry standard of performance by increasing the accuracy and speed of order fulfillment with AI-powered instantaneous inventory knowledge, space optimization, and route planning.
