Tiliter, the world’s most accurate and flexible product recognition technology, and FutureProof Retail (FPR), the leading provider of line-free mobile checkout solution, have partnered to deploy the first self-service scale with product recognition integrated with Scan and Go in the United States.
FPR’s solution enables customers to use their smartphones to scan and bag items while they are shopping. They can then pay on their phone and skip the lines at checkout. FPR’s mobile platform seamlessly integrates with the Tiliter Scan&Go Scale that assists shoppers in adding weight items such as produce and bulk foods to their shopping basket. Instead of entering a PLU number, Tiliter’s software automatically identifies the item and shows a barcode on the screen that the customer can simply scan with FPR’s Scan and Go app. For retailers, this reduces loss due to incorrectly entered PLU numbers. The first integration has been deployed in New York City’s Westside Market and a range of supermarkets across the US will follow this year, over-taking competitor check-out free solutions.
The technology is powered by Tiliter Vision software that uses leading edge artificial intelligence and computer vision to recognise any product without a barcode including fresh produce, mixed nuts, dried fruit, candy, bulk and bakery items. Shoppers do not need to manually search for the desired items or enter a PLU which ensures a contactless and hygienic checkout experience. Currently in Australia, shoppers are already experiencing contactless shopping with Tiliter Scan&Go Scales installed in over 20 Woolworths stores.
Since COVID-19, deployment of Scan and Go technology in supermarkets has increased significantly. Many retailers such as New York City’s Fairway Market incorporated FPR’s mobile checkout application as part of the market’s shopper safety recommendations to its customers. Since the campaign, Fairway has noted over 300% increase in app adoption. At Fairway’s Manhattan stores, at least 20% of transactions are coming through the scan and go app.
“Tiliter’s Scan&Go Scale with its powerful AI makes FPR’s already easy and frictionless solution even easier by enabling automatic recognition of products, dramatically reducing time spent in-store for shoppers,” says Di Di Chan, President of FutureProof Retail.
Marcel Herz, CEO of Tiliter points out that “FPR’s leading Scan & Go solution is the perfect fit to eliminate touch points and enable social distancing in stores. The integration with Tiliter’s self-service scale provides the safest shopping experience available.”
