RELEX helps create efficient operations and improves short-life products availability

Lack of automation

Relying on time consuming manual processes with poor store data is inefficient and can lead to errors, resulting in increased costs and decreased profitability. 


Convenience stores carry a wide variety of items with an increased demand for fresh items. It can be challenging to replenish short-life products and balance availability with sales losses and spoilage.  

Small store footprint and inventory storage facilities 

Having a small footprint and limited storage space makes it crucial to use space in the most efficient way and stock the shelves with the right assortment.

Efficient store operations 

Continued inflation and labor challenges, including hiring and retention, add additional pressure to drive efficiency and customer satisfaction at the same time.
