Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR FACILITATING SHOPPING IN A PHYSICAL RETAIL FACILITY
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS POUR FACILITER LES ACHATS DANS UNE INSTALLATION DE VENTE DE DÉTAIL PHYSIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) In some embodiments, apparatuses and methods are provided herein useful to facilitate expedient shopping in a physical retail facility. In one embodiment, a shopping system directed to pre-filling shopping carts with retail items prior to a customer's arrival at the physical retail shopping facility includes a user database of user profiles having one or more partialities associated with customers, a product database of retail products with identified vectorized characterizations or product vectors, a plurality of physical shopping carts, and a control circuit. By one approach, the control circuit is configured to access the user database and the product database and identify suggested retail items for a particular customer based, in part, on comparisons between the identified partialities and the identified vectorized product characterizations of the retail products.
(FR) La présente invention concerne, selon certains modes de réalisation, des appareils et des procédés utiles pour faciliter des achats rapides dans une installation de vente au détail physique. Selon un mode de réalisation, un système d'achat conçu pour pré-remplir des chariots d'achat avec des articles de détail avant l'arrivée d'un client dans l'installation de vente au détail physique, comprend une base de données d'utilisateurs comprenant des profils d'utilisateurs ayant une ou plusieurs partialités associées aux clients, une base de données de produits comprenant des produits de détail avec des descriptions vectorisées ou des vecteurs de produit identifiés, une pluralité de chariots d'achat physiques et un circuit de commande. Selon une approche, le circuit de commande est configuré pour accéder à la base de données d'utilisateurs et à la base de données de produits et identifier des articles de détail suggérés pour un client particulier sur la base, en partie, de comparaisons entre les partialités identifiées et les descriptions de produits vectorisées identifiées des produits de vente au détail.
