A robot has arrived to replace one of the most mundane tasks of retail associates: inventory checking. From Simbe Robotics, Tally promises to audit shelves cheaper, more frequently, and significantly faster than existing processes with near-perfect accuracy.

With a suite of sensors, Tally operates safely during normal store hours alongside shoppers and employees.
