A new app has Italian shoppers using the cloud to help keep their refrigerators and pantries stocked. The app is called Rosie, and it learns users’ purchase routines to deliver items when they run out.
After entering details about their household, such as number of residents, their age and regular buying habits, shoppers can then head to their grocer’s online store to start shopping. Then they simply head to the real store of their choice and pick up their items, already bagged and waiting for them.
But Rosie doesn’t stop there. The service automatically finds the cheapest price for the item and reserves it in a nearby store. The app even alerts consumers when they might be getting low or running out of an item based on smart algorithms and their purchase histories.
