Relief for Grocers in a Labor Crunch

Even prior to today’s labor struggle, grocers were operating at a net 1-3% margin. Rising labor costs have eaten into these already thin margins, yet retailers know that their labor force is a key enabler of the customer experience that builds loyalty. During this national labor shortage, retailers are asking a critical question: Can we retain these valuable employees and still operate profitably?

This eBook highlights three ways intelligent order automation is easing labor burdens in retail grocery, amplifying the impact of a lean workforce, and giving store employees more time to assist shoppers.


“Orders are due by 10 am, so the first thing I do when I arrive is to look at the case and write the order. It’s really stressful since I can have huge sales one week and a lot of shrink the next. This program is a relief.”
