UAE’s Majid Al Futtaim has launched Simbe Robotics’ autonomous inventory robot Tally to 11 additional Carrefour stores in the country.

Majid Al Futtaim owns and operates the Carrefour franchise in the Middle East, Africa and Asia (MEAA) region.

Tally is a robotic autonomous shelf auditing and analytics solution equipped with a suite of sensors to operate in retail environments.

The robot roams the aisle of the grocery store checking on inventory three times a day. The data captured is reported to the store teams.

Some of the shelves auditing tasks performed by the robot are out-of-stock items, low stock items, misplaced items and pricing errors among others.

Simbe Robotics CEO Brad Bogolea said: “Through this expansion, the Carrefour team is investing in innovation, prioritising better data and a more fulfilling customer experience.

“With Tally, they’ve significantly reduced out-of-stocks and helped ensure shoppers are finding what they’re looking for, even amid pandemic shortages, which leads to happy customers and improves the bottom line.”

Simbe’s Tally robot was first launched at Carrefour in September 2019.

The deployment comes a few months after Simbe Robotics announced the roll-out of the latest design iteration of the autonomous retail robot, Tally 3.0.

So far, Tally has been implemented by over a dozen major 250 retailers in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

Recently, UAE’s Majid Al Futtaim joined IBM Food Trust to provide food traceability for Carrefour customers in the MEAA region.
