Cultura | Périgueux, France

The Hänel Rotomat® as storage depot at the retail site

Cultura was founded in 1998 and now has more than 80 retail shops located throughout France. A Hänel Rotomat® system was integrated in the point-of-sale area of the shop in the city of Périgueux. The Rotomat® utilizes the vertical space available – from floor to ceiling – for the purpose of storing e-books, videos and computer games that have been preordered online by customers.

Optimal space utilization and attractive design

The Hänel Rotomat® was specifically adapted for installation at this particular Cultura location. Thanks to the space-saving storage provided by the Hänel system, maximum storage capacity is available within a minimum footprint. The Hänel Rotomat® also bolsters corporate identity with its modern design and orange color – the customized system blends in perfectly with the overall layout and design of the retail store.

No waiting at the PoS

Cultura’s Click & Collect Service allows customers to order various kinds of media online and then pick up their items locally at the store. These orders are picked and packaged at the company’s central warehouse before being shipped to the retail shop.

The orders are then kept in the Hänel Rotomat® until customers pick them up. Customers must identify themselves and then give the cashier their online order slip so that the packaged items can be retrieved from the Rotomat®. Thanks to this solution store employees can take care of daily business as well as the increasing numbers of online orders with greater efficiency and without having to walk around retrieving items to fill these orders.

Cultura employees benefit from intuitive storage system operation, not to mention the outstanding ergonomics of the Hänel Rotomat®. Books and other media kept in the system are stored in smooth-sliding drawer units. The Hänel Rotomat® is also equipped with a lockable sliding door which protects high-end items from dust, contami-nation and unauthorized access.

Ease of use and outstanding ergonomics are hallmarks of Hänel storage solutions, and this customized Rotomat® is a prime example of Hänel quality and design. Direct access by cashiers at the point of sale saves a lot of time as well.

Thanks to the Hänel Rotomat®, Cultura has been able to save space in the shop and in the warehouse – and this has resulted in lower costs! 

The Hänel Rotomat® is an intelligent storage system that ensures neat, transparent and precise organization. And this saves enormous amounts of time.
