SpartanNash Rolling Out Simbe’s Tally At 60 More Stores

SpartanNash Tally

SpartanNash plans to add Simbe’s autonomous inventory robot Tally at 60 additional company-operated stores across the Midwest. 

Simbe’s Store Intelligence platform informs product stocking, ordering, merchandising and e-commerce fulfillment, with real-time inventory insights across every store area. 

The data precision that Tally gives ensures items are available for SpartanNash shoppers with accurate location and price, while freeing up associates for more engaging, guest-facing work. 

“We first piloted Tally in 15 stores, and the success of that launch motivated us to expand Tally across more locations to help associates save time in inventory tracking and spend more time on the floor serving our store guests,” said Tom Swanson, EVP of corporate retail.

“The real-time data intelligence Tally provides helps ensure our store guests’ favorite items always stay fresh, are adequately stocked and priced competitively, helping us deliver the ingredients for a better life.”

Simbe CEO Brad Bogolea said the company is “always impressed with how SpartanNash embraces innovative technologies.”

“In retail’s fast-paced environment, every data point matters. The expansion of our solution is a testament to their relentless focus on strengthening operations, supporting associates and delivering an optimal shopping experience,” he said. “Working with the SpartanNash team is incredibly rewarding, and we can’t wait to see the partnership grow from here.”
