NEW YORK - National Retail Federation (NRF) Show attendees are getting a first-hand view of the latest order pick-up and fulfillment solutions from Apex Supply Chain Technologies®. The world’s leading provider of self-serve automation, Apex is demonstrating its full-range of innovative retail technology at #NRF2018, and showing how brands including Fanatics, Delaware North, Carolina Panthers and Casey’s General Store use Apex to automate retail processes, including buy online pick up in store (BOPIS) and mobile device management.

“For a truly seamless shopping experience, it must be effortless for the time-starved customer to buy and for retail operations to fulfill,” says Kent Savage, founder and CEO of Apex. “From the store into the warehouse, self-serve automation is being applied by some of the world’s leading retail brands to improve key processes.”

Apex solutions are known for decreasing costs while increasing productivity by eliminating low-value, manual tasks. More and more, this technology is proving critical to retailers, restaurants and foodservice in making the customer experience and operations truly seamless.

Orders Increase 26% with Self-Serve, Automated Order Pick-Up

Retailers and restaurants are automating order pick-up with Apex AnyWhere™ lockers so customers can skip the line when picking up their purchases. Automating this process also brings customers into the store, helping increase orders by as much as 26 percent according to Deloitte.

For retailers, it gives their customers more fast and convenient options in how they buy, pick-up and return purchases without adding staff. Restaurants and foodservice brands rely on the AnyWhere Flow-Thru lockers. The lockers’ two-sided design creates an efficient workflow for preparing orders. This ensures stores can handle the additional demand created by popular mobile order apps.

Repair Costs Shrink 40% with Self-Serve, Automated Asset Management

From the front of the store into the supply chain, the AXCESS™ self-serve, automated locker helps manage, track and control highly-valuable, mission-critical equipment, such as handheld scanners, radio headsets and other mobile technology.

Used in the back of stores, warehouses, distribution centers and other critical points in the supply chain, these smart lockers help eliminate waste and inefficiencies associated with resources required to manage this equipment. And the costs to repair and replace these mobile devices are proven to shrink by as much as 40 percent.

Apex Supply Chain Technologies is the world’s leading provider of self-serve automation for use in retail, restaurants and foodservice, including sports and entertainment venues. Our devices track billions of transactions to help customers worldwide benefit from our solutions. To learn more about Apex, visit us online at our website ( on LinkedIn ( or on Twitter (
