Product

When we talk about Ocado the first thing that comes to mind are our futuristic automated warehouses. However, it takes a long time to build an automated warehouse. Depending on the size, it could take a couple of years until it is built and fully functional. Also, there are areas that are sparsely populated, and an automated warehouse will just never be cost-efficient. This is where In-Store Fulfilment(ISF) comes into play.

The ISF Inbound Team is responsible for supporting the backend services and UI components that enable the receiving, product placement and management of goods inside manual warehouses.

The applications  we develop streamline the inbound processes by providing instructions to operatives, giving visibility to managers and integrating with other Ocado Smart Platform (OSP) systems.
