Technology giant Bell and Howell is rolling out a drive-up automated grocery and general merchandise pickup solution for grocers and other retailers.
BH QuickCollect is the latest innovation from Durham, North Carolina-based Bell and Howell, the leading provider of retail click and collect solutions. The modular system can be added to an existing retail building, or as a standalone structure. BH QuickCollect is designed, installed and managed by Bell and Howell, with partners KPS Global and Viscon Logistics.
The automated grocery and general merchandise retrieval system provides customers with drive-up pickup stations that are built directly into the kiosk, with dedicated parking directly in front of each station. Customers simply scan a unique QR code sent when an order is ready for pickup. Their online order is then delivered in as little as 45 seconds, without ever having to enter the store.
“What we’ve accomplished here is unprecedented,” says Joe Zuech, vice president of manufacturing and grocery pickup for Bell and Howell. “We’ve brought other leading solution providers and combined them with Bell and Howell technology and know-how to deliver a world-class drive-up and grocery pickup experience designed to provide the most convenient shopping experience possible.”
