AIR Introduces VAULT System to the UK to Combat Shoplifting and Elevate Shopping Experience

Automation in Retail (AIR), a global pioneer in automated retail technology, is excited to unveil its autonomous merchandising system, VAULT, in the United Kingdom.

Designed from the ground up to combat shoplifting while offering limitless scalability, this state-of-the-art solution seamlessly combines profit protection with an enhanced shopping experience, marking a significant leap forward in the realm of retail automation.

Each VAULT merchandising system, equipped with an integrated self-checkout, is engineered to surpass traditional shelving systems and can dispense nearly every product found in grocery stores, high street health & beauty outlets, and pharmacies. VAULT significantly reduces losses due to theft and operational inefficiencies, harnesses consumer data, streamlines inventory management, optimises supply chain operations, and elevates customer satisfaction.

Key highlights of the VAULT merchandising system include:

  • Unprecedented Theft Deterrence: Precision-engineered to robustly deter shoplifting, particularly of high-value items, safeguarding both inventory and profits.
  • Biometric Verification: Utilising cutting-edge biometric technologies, VAULT ensures the legal dispensing of age-restricted items like alcohol, tobacco, and vapes without the need for employee verification or intervention.
  • Inclusive Accessibility: Ensures ease of shopping for consumers with mobility impairments or those requiring mobility aids.
  • Ergonomic Retrieval: Products are dispensed within seconds at waist height for convenient collection.
  • Efficient Robotic Retrieval: VAULT’s integrated robotic arm ensures swift product retrieval, enhancing the customer experience while maintaining product security.
  • Informed Purchases: Its touchscreen order system facilitates a seamless self-checkout experience, provides allergen information before purchase, and enables multiple purchases with a single, hassle-free contactless payment.
  • Labour Efficiency: Automation reduces reliance on manpower, resulting in significant cost savings and enhanced employee safety by reducing theft-related incidents.
  • Elimination of Everyday Issues: Such as in-store product consumption, damaged/contaminated products, opening products unnecessarily, reaching to the back for ‘fresher’ items, and untidy shelves.
  • Data-Driven Insights: Captures valuable data throughout the retail journey, offering insights into consumer behavior, demand patterns, and operational performance. This data empowers retailers to make informed decisions that drive growth and profitability.
  • Revenue Opportunities: Retailers can unlock new revenue streams beyond product sales alone, thanks to its innovative AI-powered marketing platform offering opportunities for monetisation through interactive touchscreens.
  • Profit Protection: Beyond its technological marvel, each VAULT system represents a strategic shift towards safeguarding profits, embodying a “spend to save” philosophy.
  • Customisable and Scalable: Guarantees maximum utilisation of retail space and comes in multiple colorways.
  • Contemporary Design: Meticulous aesthetics ensure that while function is prioritised, form is not compromised, enhancing the shopping ambiance.
  • Structural Reliability: Built with high-quality robust materials, ensuring longevity and minimal maintenance.

“We are thrilled to introduce our VAULT solution to the global market,” said Joe Jackson, Global Client Relations Lead of AIR.

“As retailers continue to navigate an ever-changing and challenging landscape, our commitment remains unwavering—to provide state-of-the-art technology that not only simplifies operations, protects profits and employees, but also elevates the customer experience. VAULT is a testament to our dedication to innovation and our belief in the transformative power of automation.”
