Hardware failure is a critical component of #digitalTransformation. Case in point: McDonalds outdoor Drive Thru menu board failures shows how difficult it can be to replace good old paper cardboard... | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

McDonald’s Drive-Thrus are a baseline for the entire industry and seeing them install LCDs that basically blow up and fail totally is something everyone wants to understand.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: found this example of displays that fail at McDonalds drive-thrus. It highlights the fact that digital transformation often means deploying new hardware in places where there not in the past. And that creates a huge number of issues in terms of design, maintenance, operations, etc. Very often not a big deal is planned but very much a big deal if not accounted for in the beginning. So think about cooling, electricity availability, repairs, software version updates, security, content upload, etc.

Is this what our world is going to be like post the Covid-19 pandemic?

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this is old news but a new picture that shows what it looks like when you track your delivery in China. The image is from March 2021 even though the article is from 2020. So it seems to remain after a year. Not sure when it will be part of the UBER app... ;-)

Voyage Commander is a state-of-the-art self-driving robot taxi that has a number of important limitations and sheds light into what is possible and what is not | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

When Commander detects that something in the road ahead cannot be handled by itself, it gracefully transitions control to Telessist, our novel remote assistance technology. Telessist enables our robotaxi service to scale quicker, safely driving riders through any scenario that the world can throw at us.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: a very interesting article about a robot taxi system, how it works and its limitations. Fun read to understand what is possible and what is not in self driving tech today. This is important because many of digital transformation use case depend on this for profitability (for example eCommerce delivery cost should reduce drastically when this available).

From the top 500 report on delivery in Europe

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: 50% return rates stated as "normal" for this retailer: I find it shameful and unsustainable for many reasons (economic and environmental for starters). It is great that only 0.05% end up in the landfill but this is not the case in most organizations: returns are at best discounted and most often trashed. How can small retailers build profitable eCommerce business models when 1in2 or 1in10 orders gets returned? It may work ok for apparel or luxury or other high margins segments, but for most retailers this is not the case. Returns are a problem and they need to be addressed!

Our ranking shows that it is not all about having absurdly fast
or absurdly cheap delivery – retailers should not fear a race to
the bottom in terms of profit margins. What we believe they should
prioritise is a wide range of offerings that suit their product ranges
and customer base.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this report is Europe centric and provides some useful nuggets of information about what makes the best eCommerce retailers successful. Automation, customer service, data and analytics and many others. Nice reference to keep handy when you want to audit or plan your delivery improvements.

Insightful study of UK E-Commerce Shipping highlights many areas that confirm pick, pack, delivery and returns need improvement

Insightful study of UK E-Commerce Shipping highlights many areas that confirm pick, pack, delivery and returns need improvement | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

So how do the UK’s largest online shops1 perform during checkout, shipping and returns? The study shows that customer centricity ends after checkout and retailers expect customers to seek information from them, rather than the other way around. As a result of this subpar after-sales support, the UK’s online retailers are throwing away millions of pounds in potential sales every month.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this study of 100 post-checkout experiences across UK retailers applies to Quebec, Canada and US as well. Full of useful insights about free delivery, delivery selection, returns, etc.

Amazon planning new service for its rural deliveries to keep costs down and finalize its vertical integration? #ecommerce #retail

Amazon planning new service for its rural deliveries to keep costs down and finalize its vertical integration? #ecommerce #retail | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Amazon generated $1.6 billion in profit and $3.9 billion in revenue for the postal service in fiscal year 2019, with the postal service delivering 1.54 billion Amazon packages — about 30 percent of Amazon’s total volume last year. With more people relying on deliveries during the coronavirus pandemic, that number is expected to grow throughout the end of the year and well into next year.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: Amazon delivery cost now account for 17.8% of sales, increasing. It ships billions of packages via postal service in US (and Canada and elsewhere) but reports like these seem to indicate it may want to build its own delivery infrastructure. And this would be bad for eCommerce as Amazon would control the whole supply chain and obviously keep the savings for itself.

Paul Clarke, Ocado's chief technology officer, has said he envisions the company eventually moving to completely "dark" fulfillment centers—ones that would be fully automated and employ virtually no people.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: the acquisition of robotics for Ocado fulfillment centers could be seen as one more tech announcement. But buried in this Fortune article is this quote from Ocado CTO that summarizes the ultimate goal of grocery eCommerce: dark warehouses with robots doing all the work. 

This may sound very futuristic but in fact it is the consequence of the grocery eCommerce business model: the only way to make money is to have robots to the work that consumers do when pushing carts in the store.

Everybody likes to get a package. In 2020, we'll send more than 100 billion of them--and that number could double by 2030. Who will deliver all those packages, and how? In this edition, The Next Normal explores what's ahead in last-mile parcel delivery.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: parcel delivery has become the primary volume for postman. Why not have delivery routes - postman or milkmen - to deliver the parcels and not just the mail? Would this not be a more cost effective solution than delivering one by one?

Amazon sales +44% during covid increases need for delivery hub expansion -warehouses- in suburbs and cities 

Amazon sales +44% during covid increases need for delivery hub expansion -warehouses- in suburbs and cities  | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The rise in ecommerce caused an unprecedented surge in Amazon's volume, but it came with fulfillment challenges. The coronavirus pandemic bolstered ecommerce growth—sales grew 44.4% annually in Q2—as consumers turned to online shopping instead of brick-and-mortar amid store closures. But the milestone came with challenges in handling the surge, including delivery delays and slowed shipping speeds. Other competitors, like Walmart, were able to more effectively weather the storm because of their massive store network, so replicating competitors' strategies could help Amazon recoup lost market share and extend growth during the busy holiday season.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: Amazon will use failing and bankrupt stores and shopping malls to build warehouses so close to consumers that 1-2hr delivery becomes possible - the last hurdle in making eCommerce viable in many product categories (grocery, food, meals, and other high volume / low margin categories come to mind first of course).

62% of US adults have preferred to buy groceries in person since the beginning of the pandemic despite nearly a quarter of them using online delivery and pickup.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: amazon appears to be testing another method of grocery fulfillment that leverages dark stores that are close to households (with dedicated staff and soon micro-fulfillment automation) and a network of freelance drivers that delivers orders in a very small area in order to solve the last remaining problem of eCommerce: delivery cost and speed.

High tech drones or UAVs are tackling everything from disease control to vacuuming up ocean waste to delivering pizza, and more.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: when Amazon receives FAA clearance for drone delivery, I take notice. After all, delivery is the final frontier for profitable ecommerce. So maybe drone delivery is the solution - especially for Canada and its wide empty territory? Not sure that drones will solve delivery issues but sure it is fun to think that it may provide a low-cost option in certain areas.

The Next Shipping & Delivery Battleground: Why Amazon, Walmart, & Smaller Retailers Are Betting On Micro-Fulfillment via @CBinsights | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

As retailers spar to offer a better online shopping experience, micro-fulfillment technology could deliver a faster service for customers while boosting profits for retailers.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: ecommerce fulfillment must be efficient to be profitable. With order volume increases in recent months, the benefits of micro-fulfillment solutions have become clearer than ever. With setup costs in the tens of millions, they remain capital intensive endeavours for the long run. When combined with automated delivery, they can make eCommerce a profitable business for many retailers. This report highlight some of the key characteristics of these solutions.

The (not so) hidden cost of food #delivery shows that the current model is unsustainable - and not just for restaurants via @techcrunch | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The food delivery ecosystem suffers from a lack of differentiation, compounded by an opaque and confusing web of markups and fees.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: delivery is the last problem to solve for eCommerce to explode. Not only do delivery fees need to be reduced via automation and "milk runs", but it is impossible for retailers and restaurant to support the rent of mostly empty space (during covid and I assume some time after) in prime locations. The overall business model has to change. Ghost kitchens, dark stores, and other solutions are required.

The pandemic has laid bare the broken business model for online grocery shopping and created new urgency for grocers to fix it, a Bain report said.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: grocery is tough with small margins and this chart from Bain says it all: delivery and the fees are the last problem to solve with eCommerce. And I would say this is true for all other retail industries, not just grocery. It is that grocery is more sensitive with their high volume and low margins.

An analyst note highlights the impact of covid-19 on the Grocery Industry - pushing it over the hump and shaving 2 years in adoption cycle via @PitchBook | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, several technologies have emerged that are helping reshape the grocery landscape and fuel the shift toward delivery.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: online grocery adoption has been very slow (I know, I did the first IGA online in 1996!) but now it seems covid may have pushed it over the hump. And if not, at least it appears that it has shaved about one or two years in its adoption cycle. This report provides useful insights as well a great review of startups in the field.

As Workers Spread Out to Halt the Virus, #Robots Fill the Gaps via @WIRED

As Workers Spread Out to Halt the Virus, #Robots Fill the Gaps via @WIRED | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Social distancing requires rethinking the layout of workplaces. A new breed of robots can help keep factories and warehouses running.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS:  I've seen these robots at CES2020 (or was it NRF?) and they are quite impressive. The video in the article shows that having small robots work alongside humans is a reality today. You'll see in the video that they use a modified kinect camera to sense depth, devices that I've also seen at CES this year and years before. Applications are endless and relatively low cost.

Expansion through pilot with tech company Nuro. Walmart continues expanding its Grocery Pickup and Delivery service, currently with nearly 3,100 pickup locations, and deliveries from more than 1,600 stores. 

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this is the Holy Grail of eCommerce: cheap, fast, reliable delivery of orders. Looks like grocery delivery, with its high frequency and large order size is the killer app as evidenced by these many tests by Walmart and - my own opinion - the acquisition of Whole Foods by Amazon.

A leading Canadian grocer will pilot automated fulfillment of its buy-online-pickup-in-store (BOPIS) offering.

Loblaw Inc. is building an automated picking facility to support its PC Express BOPIS service. Leveraging a hyperlocal fulfillment solution from Takeoff Technologies that functions in compact vertical spaces, Loblaw will launch the 12,000-sq.-ft. facility inside one of its GTA Real Canadian superstores in 2020.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: order fulfillment and delivery is the last remaining hurdle to eCommerce. Loblaws in Canada will pilot a micro-fulfillment solution from TakeOff that impressed me last year at Shoptalk. In short, they create an automated back-store where eCommerce orders are prepared with a huge amount of automation. The question remains whether the economics is better for micro-fulfillment or if centralized warehouse fulfillment with hub-and-spoke delivery is better suited for high volume / low margin eCommerce that grocery is about. Thus this "test" by Loblaws. Note that Sobeys has decided in favor of more centralized ocado-driven automated warehouse and Metro remains with the more traditional decentralized (and manual) store-based pick-pack-deliver process. Given the low volume of orders for online grocery in Canada I remain partisan of a store-based manual approach but the economics I got from TakeOff was promising. Below additional links if you want to read more about takeoff and ocado.

Boston Dynamics’ robot dog Spot is going on sale for the first time - this is a major milestone, moving from R&D to potential real-world applications , but be warned about the current limitations... | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Boston Dynamics only has 20 of the robots available right now, but it’s hoping to manufacture about 1,000 for use out in the field. So it has to be very choosy about who gets one. It hasn’t disclosed how much they will cost.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this is a big deal because the Boston Dynamics robots appear to be the advanced and versatile. The fact that they are made commercially available is significant after years of being research project. You have to be in the market for an early device with lots of limitations but, looking down the road a few years, one has to start planning for robots to start making their way into practical use cases in construction, etc. Plus the videos are just fun to watch!
