    Has COVID-19 revealed pickup’s pain points?

    Enhancing the curbside experience is twofold. You must have a completely frictionless experience for the customer and more importantly for the staff inside the store. Predictive arrival technology (if done right) can help solve for both of these. Retailers who put up a sign with a phone number or text message to alert the store are throwing up a curbside process and not creating a convenient and repeatable solution. Brands like Target, Giant Eagle, and Ahold Delhaize who are using their customer application to locate customers when they are on their way to the store create a great customer experience in their app. However unless you have a process and technology for staff to operationalize the data they are receiving from the customers device it won't matter much. If you can operationalize it so staff are receiving alerts along the customer journey (ETA, five minutes out, on property, in a curbside pickup zone) you can marry a great customer experience with a really efficient staff experience to create almost zero wait times and help staff prioritize their workload in the store. Lower wait times and more efficient staff equals a great experience for both and a solution for contactless shopping that is only going to continue to rise in popularity (if done right).
