eStore Logistics takes top gong for Finder's Best Retail Innovation

Australia’s most forward-thinking and cutting-edge businesses have been recognised in the 2021 Finder Awards winners' ceremony.

The Finder Innovation Awards celebrate the excellence, creativity and impact of initiatives introduced in the past 12 months. 

Submissions across 27 key innovation categories were scored by a judging panel of 46 industry heavy-hitters including experts from Deakin University, Australian Investment Council, Australian Fintech, and the Australian Tourism Industry Council.

eStore Logistics won Best Retail Innovation for the largest-ever rollout of AI-enabled robots.

Lauren Chaplin, senior shopping writer at Finder, said the surge in online shopping has forced retailers to make the shift online in order to meet the needs of customers.

“The rise of the tech-savvy consumer has meant that retailers need to up their game in order to keep up with the constantly evolving market.

“From user interface to reducing warehouse processing times, we’re seeing retail companies pushing to enhance the customer service experience to maintain their competitive advantage.

“We saw a range of entries this year from many retailers in the industry facilitating new business models and approaches to simplify the in-store and online shopping experience for customers, which is outstanding to see.

“Those that are dynamic and have the ability to keep up with the ever-changing needs of customers will have a clear advantage in increasing opportunities for growth,” she said.
