Eiracube is a European startup which provides the direct channel between the consumer and e-commerce. It is a platform to showcase the unique product of a company on busy places to increase the sale of the particular product. It is basically the robotic powered pop-up store that displays the products beside busy street, airports, shopping malls etc so that number of consumers is attracted to it. It is an easy and cost-effective way to bring your product in to notice in a retail environment.
In the traditional method of online e-commerce business, retailers faced the problem with visibility, the popularity of their products and transactions. Consumers faced the problem with lack of awareness about new and popular products, transparency, and purchase transactions.
Eiracube is an answer to all the e-commerce problems. It fills the gap between traditional and digital sales. It is basically the revolution to an e-commerce industry. It does not require any human workforce as it is fully automated and handled by robots. It employs robots instead of assistants and helps in selling the products to consumers. It is designed to offer an excellent shopping experience. Each cube includes an integrated robot and store management system, dedicated Wi-Fi hotspot, point of sale (POS) touch screen, and payment system accepting cash and cryptocurrencies.
Physical Structure of Eiracube:-
The cube dimensions are 6 meters by 3 meters (18m2) on average. The cube hosts twelve SKUs and may stock 200 to 2000 product items in its inventory. The number of items stocked depends on their size. The merchants’ advertising content is communicated through twelve Full HD 22” screens located at each shelf and two 65” pure digital signage screens set at both ends of the shop. Once the customer has chosen and paid for the purchase, an IAM Robotics AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle) robotic assistant retrieves the item from stock and delivers it to a dispensing gate for collection.
