Pio (“Product In/Out”) is a plug-and-play version of AutoStore cube storage technology tailored for small and medium-sized businesses.

Pio (“Product In/Out”) is a plug-and-play version of AutoStore cube storage technology tailored for small and medium-sized businesses. Based on a pay-per-pick service model, Pio allows these businesses to deploy robotic automation for a relatively low investment. By enabling same-day order processing and eliminating backlog, Pio levels the playing field for independent brands. With Pio, businesses can get items out the door faster and more cost-effectively, leading to a better customer experience.

Pio enables 4x more effective space utilization and up to 5x faster picking and packing operations. This empowers businesses to spend less time managing inventory and more time focusing on ensuring continued success. By providing an entry point to warehouse automation for a relatively low investment, small businesses can keep their operations in-house instead of requiring a 3PL or significant real estate and labor investments to scale up. Pio’s pay-per-pick model dramatically reduces initial capital expense, so businesses can afford the world’s best automation technology earlier in their life cycle.

Retailers pay a fee per individual item picked; robots, ports, and software are owned and maintained by Pio. Users need only purchase product bins and the frames that the robots run on. A Pio facility is modular and scalable and runs on standard plug-and-play software that connects to the most common online retail and shipping platforms. In effect, Pio lets small and medium-sized business compete against much larger ones, with minimal capital expense, added labor, or need for additional floor space.
