Industry leaders Lozier & CASI team up to develop automated shelving and BOPIS pickup solutions.

As a retailer, is BOPIS a temporary solution or a long-term customer play?

Are your store operations teams simply getting by, or is it time to invest in long-term solutions that not only reduce customer wait times but also reduce staffing demands?

Of course, the real question is whether BOPIS will be a cornerstone shopping experience in the future?

The simple truth is, while many customers are overjoyed to go back to the old shopping experience, after a year and a half of the “new retail norm”, many will not.  There will still be a core component of your customer base who will simply prefer to buy online and either pick it up in-store or have it shipped to their home.

To respond to this forecasted need, Lozier and Cornerstone Automation Systems (CASI) have combined resources to form the largest team effort in e-commerce and retail automation, and quite honestly, the solutions are pretty incredible.

In this article, we’re going to introduce you to 6 brand-new solutions that are changing the way retailers approach and staff BOPIS solutions.
