Yango Deli Tech, a global tech company that provides proprietary technologies and expertise for retailers and Nana, the leading online grocery and commodities delivery platform in Saudi Arabia, have signed an agreement to implement Yango Deli Tech’s technologies into Nana’s current operations in KSA, laying the foundation for its future expansion plans. The partnership will enable Nana to improve unit economics, significantly enhance the client experience and support the company’s expansion into new markets.
The move follows a pilot project conducted at one of Nana’s dark stores earlier this year. The test showed the delivery platform could cut down the average missing items per day by 97% by implementing an innovative Warehouse Management System that enables almost 100% stock accuracy. A purpose-built dark store picker app also helped to decrease the time needed for order preparation by more than 35% via implementing smart in-store routing as each stock-keeping unit (SKU) is assigned to a specific shelf. At the moment, the partnership is working at full capacity across all planned stores.
Max Avtukhov, CEO at Yango Deli Tech said: “We are honored to partner with Nana to advance on a global mission of making high-tech e-grocery the reality of today and provide best-in-class user experience to consumers in Saudi Arabia and other markets in the Middle East. We strive to keep up with consumers’ rapidly evolving preferences and streamline operations for our customers. Together, we will set a new bar for the industry as a whole.”
Sami Alhelwah, Nana Co-Founder and CEO commented: “Tackling one of the major pain points of the retail sector within the region, we have partnered with Yango Deli Tech to provide our company with the technological and operational experience of other markets to address stock inaccuracies and replenishment inefficiencies which will support our vision and fuel our ambitious goals for further expansion and growth.”
