Herve Street (Star Service Groupe) about our Arctan

Marek Piotrowski (CMO Retail Robotics): What are your impressions about Arctan - our e-grocery pick-up machine?

Herve Street (President of Star Service Groupe): I think you have a very large lead in terms of technology, in terms of industry, in terms of design, in terms of functionality.

(...) Today the lockers are things without a soul, without life, they are doors that we open, that we close. What you have designed, created - is really what we expected and what we wanted to import into France and see blooming everywhere in all the city districts.

I think you're way ahead of the game today, there is a strong technology, a nice design. Well there's everything and we were really impressed by the tool, by the machine, by the way you considered it and thought about it.
