AIR Unveils Revolutionary VAULT System in the UK to Combat Shoplifting and Elevate Shopping Experience

Automation in Retail (AIR), a global leader in automated retail technology, is thrilled to announce the launch of its cutting-edge autonomous merchandising system, VAULT, in the United Kingdom.

Designed from the ground up to tackle shoplifting with unparalleled scalability, this state-of-the-art solution seamlessly combines profit protection with an enhanced shopping journey, marking a significant advancement in the realm of retail automation.

Each VAULT merchandising system, equipped with integrated self-checkout capabilities, is meticulously engineered to outperform traditional shelving systems. It can dispense nearly every product found in grocery stores, high street health & beauty stores, and pharmacies. VAULT not only significantly reduces losses due to theft and operational inefficiencies but also harnesses consumer data, streamlines inventory management, optimises supply chain operations, and elevates overall customer satisfaction.

Key features of the VAULT merchandising system include:

  • Unparalleled Theft Deterrence: Precisely engineered to robustly eliminate shoplifting, particularly for high-value items, safeguarding both inventory and profits.
  • Biometric Verification: Leveraging top-tier biometric technologies to ensure the legal dispensing of age-restricted items like alcohol, tobacco, and vapes, without the need for employee verification or intervention.
  • Inclusive Accessibility: Ensures that consumers with mobile impairments and those requiring mobility aids can shop with ease.
  • Ergonomic Retrieval: Products are delivered within seconds at waist height for effortless collection.
  • Swift Robotic Collection: VAULT’s integrated robotic arm ensures rapid product retrieval, enhancing the customer experience while maintaining product security.
  • Informed Purchases: The touchscreen order system allows for a seamless self-checkout experience, provides allergen information pre-purchase, and enables multiple purchases with a hassle-free contactless payment.
  • Labour Efficiency: Automation minimises reliance on manpower, resulting in substantial cost savings and improved employee safety by reducing theft-related incidents.
  • Elimination of Everyday Problems: Such as in-store product consumption, damaged/contaminated products, product tampering, reaching for ‘fresher’ items at the back, and messy shelves.
  • Data-Driven Insights: Captures valuable data throughout the retail journey, offering insights into consumer behavior, demand patterns, and operational performance, empowering retailers to make informed decisions that drive growth and profitability.
  • Revenue Streams: Retailers can explore new revenue streams beyond product sales alone, thanks to an innovative AI-powered marketing platform that offers monetisation opportunities through interactive touchscreens.
  • Profit Protection: Beyond its technological marvel, each VAULT system represents a strategic shift towards safeguarding profits, emphasising a “spend to save” philosophy.
  • Customisable and Scalable: Guarantees maximum utilisation of retail space and comes in multiple customisable colorways.
  • Contemporary Design: Prioritises both function and form, enhancing the shopping ambiance with considered aesthetics.
  • Structural Reliability: Constructed with high-quality robust materials to ensure longevity and minimal maintenance.

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