As grocery and retail brands implement new technologies such as robotics and warehouse automation, Alert Innovation has launched a new website, www.e-grocery.com, that will serve as an online educational resource for the global e-commerce and store automation community.
Updated in real-time, the website was developed to accommodate the fast-growing demand for information on new topics related to e-commerce in the grocery business.
“Alert Innovation is very excited to launch this new resource and guide for our business community,” said John Lert, founder and CEO of Alert. “Our goal for the e-grocery.com site is to broaden the understanding of grocery e-commerce and store automation for improved conversations that continue to propel the industry forward.”
The website features a comprehensive vocabulary list of terms, phrases and acronyms that cover numerous topics in global grocery, retail and supply chain automation. The site uses a combination of multimedia, including imagery, animations and videos, to educate audiences on various terms and processes. Future plans include more resources such as industry white papers, best practice guides and trend-spotting links for the industry.
Founded in 2013, North Billerica, Mass.-based Alert Innovation has brought to market the Alphabot Automated Storage and Retrieval System and Automated Each-Picking System. It is also creating a new kind of automated supermarket called Novastore.
