The web based approach make WIB the first efficient, smart and automated multichannel retailing system.

2) The multiple picking patented technology allows to
- simultaneously manage different objects in terms of weight, size and fragility;
- deliver a multiple purchase at once .
This innovative mechatronics feature enables for the first time all the retailers to implement an automated smart vending with no limits about the product packages and to apply traditional promotional offers such as dynamical pricing or multi-packs as well as physical shops. It grants to end consumers the advantage to check remotely the availability of a product and buy conveniently 24H7.

3) The modular structure of the warehouse allows to optimize the storage capacity and enables the activation of different range of controlled temperatures of conservation (so very fresh food can be sold in a safe way for consumers as well as general grocery and beverages, cosmetics, consumer electronics goods, accessories, and so on).
We try to satisfy specific needs: 1. to develop long-term format for implementing an authentic network of automated retail points, with a capillary network of web-based WIB machines, that boosts sales reaching highly trafficked areas with extremely low investments; 2. to build temporary format for specific communication purpose and direct marketing (as launch of new products or analysis of consumers' behaviour), paying special attention to the visual impact, in order to increase advertising revenues and boost customer experience
