A2Z Smart Technologies Launches First Pilot in United States with Morton Williams Supermarkets
TEL AVIV, ISRAEL / ACCESSWIRE / October 7, 2021 / A2Z Smart Technologies Corp. (“A2Z” or the “Company”) (TSXV:AZ)(OTCQB:AAZZF), today announced a pilot program for its Cust2mate smart carts with Morton Williams Supermarkets, a leading upscale grocery store chain, operating 16 stores in the New York metropolitan area. The 60-day pilot program will employ 50 (fifty) Cust2Mate smart carts at two of the chain’s locations. The pilot is scheduled to start the end of Q4 of 2021. A successful pilot will lead to the full roll out in the Morton Williams supermarket chain.
A2Z’s state-of-the-art Cust2Mate Smart Cart streamlines the shopping experience by recognizing every purchased item and enabling in-cart payment so that shoppers skip lines, while also allowing retail grocers to direct shoppers to discounted products and in-store promotions to efficiently manage and move inventory.
Rafi Yam, CEO of Cust2Mate stated, “We’re excited to introduce our state-of-the-art Cust2Mate platform to the New York market at one of the premier grocery chains in Manhattan. Morton Williams has a long retail history in New York and has survived and thrived since 1946 thanks to its well-stocked, beautifully merchandized stores, as well as its commitment to embracing innovative technology to provide the best shopping experience for its customers. Our smart carts are an ideal solution for busy NYC shoppers who value the ability to get their shopping at their leisure without having to ever stand in line.
This is an important step for us and acts as a launch pad for further pilots in the US and along with our pending pilots in Mexico, the UAE and shortly in other geographical locations which gives us a global footprint which will be ably supported by our manufacturing partners Flex.”
Our smart cart platform automatically recognizes any purchased items and enables in-cart payment so that customers may bypass long checkout lines using sophisticated anti-fraud technology. Additionally, with our technology, retail grocers can direct shoppers to discounted products, in-store promotions and other offers to efficiently move inventory from the shelves into carts.”
