Instacart is a same-day grocery delivery service that connects customers with personal shoppers who pick up and deliver their groceries. Their personal shoppers deliver groceries from local partner stores in as little as one hour.
Instacart chose to use the Zatar IoT platform for its ability to connect to and control devices in third-party locations via a simple API. The solution connects Instacart’s printers to the cloud and enables the organization to easily interact, monitor and manage Zebra printers globally.
Zebra’s partner, American Barcode and RFID Inc. will also be offering advanced services and support as well as a managed services offering for the entire solution, leveraging Zatar.
“There are millions of Zebra Technologies’ devices in use in retail today, enabling omni-channel experiences,” said Philip Gerskovich, SVP, new growth platforms, Zebra Technologies. “With Zatar, these devices can be connected and allow Instacart and others to easily take advantage of the visibility and real-time information they enable.”
