KeyMe Wins Multi-Year Agreement With Albertsons Co. for RFID Keys

KeyMe, a resource for access and key management, has won an exclusive multi-year agreement with Albertsons Companies, one of the largest grocery retailers in the United States, to expand the number of KeyMe self-serve kiosk locations to 500 by late July 2018. KeyMe currently has 358 kiosks installed with Albertsons Companies properties, which include Albertsons, Safeway, ACME, Vons, United, Randall's and Tom Thumb stores.

This will bring KeyMe¹s total number of kiosks to more than 2,000 locations nationwide, the company reports, at such retailers as Bed Bath & Beyond, Kmart, Kroger, Mall of America, Rite Aid, Sears and 7-Eleven. KeyMe reportedly grew its business by more than over 300 percent last year, and is on track to more than triple it again in 2018.

KeyMe offers an array of digital options for managing keys, including copying, storage and management, in order to support the majority of home, office, mailbox, high security, vehicle and RFID keys. KeyMe kiosks employ a combination of artificial intelligence, computer vision and robotics, to eliminate human error during the key duplication process.

"With more than 2,400 locations nationwide, Albertsons represents an amazing opportunity for us to continue our incredible growth trajectory," said Greg Marsh, KeyMe CEO, in a prepared statement. "It is exciting to be chosen by another major retailer as their exclusive partner, as we strive to be the most trusted brand in key duplication, storage and access solutions.
