TECHNOLOGY
POD, " said Larry Blue, president
and chief executive officer of Bell
and Howell.
The changing role online
Tech startup Farmstead has
partnered with national real
estate companies and multiple
national last-mile delivery
services to create the first endto-end
same-day e-commerce
operations solution for grocers.
Farmstead's Grocery OS solution
now includes everything a
grocer or retailer needs to get a
dark-store delivery operation up
and running in just two weeks
including:
* Grocery OS APIs for writing
and centralizing customer
orders into dark stores (and
optionally retailers' existing
stores) from retailers' own apps
and third-party marketplaces
* Warehouse space sourced via
national real estate giants
* Optional grocery inventory
sourcing and stocking for rapid
rollout using the Grocery OS
product supply network
* Grocery OS software stack
for managing online order
intake, inventory management
with AI prediction engine
and automatic procurement,
picking and packing, and
customer communications
* Last mile delivery with
guaranteed 2-hr delivery
service across a 50-mile radius,
with optional <1-hr delivery
* Optional inclusion on
third-party delivery service
marketplaces
" Right now, rapid grocery
delivery comes with high
markups and fees, and
Farmstead wants to change
that, " said Pradeep Elankumaran,
co-founder and chief executive
officer of Farmstead. " Grocery
OS helps grocers vastly improve
efficiency, so they can eliminate
fees and make money on
H-E-B's new MacGregor Market in Houston features expansive
shopping options and added services for convenience.
e-commerce without passing
fees down to customers, and
without relying on expensive
third-party services. The
combination of Grocery OS
and dark stores enables faster
delivery, a much larger delivery
radius, and higher profits per
order, while customers get
lower prices. We've been doing
this ourselves for several years
and are now offering it to other
grocers. "
Farmstead's Grocery OS,
launched in 2020, was originally
a software-only solution. In a
pilot with a top national grocer,
Grocery OS was proven to reduce
delivery operational costs while
accelerating delivery times to
under two hours and significantly
improving customer satisfaction.
Other retailers have since
adopted the solution, including
most recently Farm Link Hawaii.
" While our Grocery OS
software greatly simplified
grocery delivery for our
customers, we saw them still
struggling with bringing a
unified solution to market, " said
Elankumaran. " Our new solution
removes those barriers and
enables our customers to get
their new delivery operations into
the market even faster. "
Predictive grocery delivery
Others are striving to solve
complex distribution issues.
Jupiter, the predictive grocery
delivery company, recently
launched across California,
Nevada, Oregon, and Washington
after a successful pilot in the
San Francisco Bay Area. The
expansion increases Jupiter's
potential customer base by
more than 7 times, with the
opportunity to reach more than
11 million households across the
Western United States.
Jupiter is the next generation
of grocery delivery, tackling the
mounting numbers of hours
spent finding recipes, meal
planning, and grocery shopping.
Jupiter's goal is to streamline the
process, relieve pressure on the
people responsible for putting
food on the table, and focus on
the pleasures of a well-prepped
meal. Customers can shop from
an innovative show-stopping
menu created by award-winning
cookbook author and food
photographer Nik Sharma, former
executive chef at Waterdog
supermarketperimeter.com
Tavern Cory Scales, and Martin
Sheehan-Stross, former lead
sommelier at Michael Mina San
Francisco.
Shoppers in these new markets
will experience simple, intuitive
shopping where they shop recipes
with products added directly to
their baskets. Based on shopper
behavior and preferred ingredients,
Jupiter immediately begins to
tailor and streamline recipe and
product discovery, meal planning,
inventory management, and
grocery delivery all in one place.
Over the first few deliveries, Jupiter
will give fully personalized and
automated grocery lists based on
staples and meal planning needs
and preferences.
" Today, Millennials and Gen
Z control their finances with a
tap, the room temperature with
their voice, and can parallel park
by pressing a button. So why are
they still making three trips to
the grocery store every week to
buy pre-packaged meals? " said
Anuraag Nallapati, co-founder
and chief operating officer of
Jupiter. " We focus on what makes
recipe discovery fun and provide
the predictive grocery delivery
service to do it. "
