INSTACART PARTNERS WITH COSTCO, PUBLIX AND BIG BRAND STORES
Instacart’s building technology to make their shoppers more efficient, and we’re gonna go see how it works. – Coming into a Costco, it takes some real-time and it’s an investment, and we would like to be able to give you that time back.
What we’re doing is we’re watching our shoppers check out of a dedicated Instacart checkout lane. People placing orders for their groceries from Costco, with or without a membership, Instacart shoppers fulfilling those go in their lane, and then bringing them to their door.
or Costco as our partner to give us our lane, it effectively means that there’s a lot of volume going through the Instacart portal. As a result, they want to get that through as fast as possible just like we do, so it’s nice that we get to have this integration, and our shoppers can go through it much much much more quickly so we can deliver more orders and get it to our customers faster. We staff it with an Instacart person, we call them a CBT, a cashier, bagger, and tagger. And then our shoppers are the ones going through the lane on the other side.
How does a shopper put an order together you may be thinking, so let’s think through the process.
To start the shopper will acknowledge their order from their app, and they’ll start shopping. After a fun shopping time, pay for the order, they’re gonna push the order back over here to our saving area, and our attendants will process the order, shelve them or put them in the refrigerator or freezer.
What our customers want is to have an experience that is as good or better than coming to the store. Everything we try to do is in service of that, so one thing we try to do is have you be able to shop from retailers that you care about.
In Costco alone, we have 75 locations around the country, but we also have over 100 other retail stores that we deliver from, and that’s chains are Costco, Whole Foods, Publix, and then some local favorites in San Francisco like an Andronico’s or a Mollie Stone’s or a Buy Rite.
We have a real-time feed of every single item that we have on Instacart. This is millions of items and real-time, is it available or is it not?
That way a customer can feel like when they’re on Instacart that they’re. shopping in the store, of what’s here, what’s not. We have aisle mapping, so we have a map of the store where we can help our shoppers go faster and pick out which items to pick, in what order, so that they’re not going to one side of the store and then the other.
And then outside, we have an area where a driver can come pick up the bag without having to wait. And then we have things like our own parking spaces. And so it’s truly these things like that on the integration side that help us make sure that our shoppers can go fast and be as efficient as possible, and deliver an awesome customer experience.
What we want to do is skip the checkout lane altogether, so we’re building technology that allows our shoppers to just scan the item and shop straight into the bag and skip the checkout lane altogether, which is another thing that shaves real minutes off the order, allows us to get it to our customers faster, and also helps us reduce the cost of the service. Instacart is expected to roll out the bypass check out in the next six months.
