WHY AUTOMATED SCANNING?
Although first impressions are important when it comes to attracting a customer into a store, last impressions have an enduring effect. In many cases the decision whether a customer returns to your store or not is strongly influenced by the experience made at the check-out. Finding the check-out solution that supports your store concept and at the same time improves your customers experience is not always easy.
We looked at many different POS-layouts in our long-time experience and helped to revolutionize the check-out starting from the first POS scan back in 1974. Accompanying you for almost five decades, we know that your needs for efficient check-out processes have grown immensely in the past years. Technology has brought so many possibilities that only some years ago were considered future dreams. Especially the advantages that modern camera technology brings has led to a fast-paced evolution that already today offers a variety of check-out solutions.
One of these solutions is the fully automatic check-out portal. It is based on vision systems and pattern recognition and recognizes items automatically as they pass by on the belt. It allows the shoppers to place items in any orientation onto a moving check stand belt. The items are captured on their way through scanning arches automatically. The combination of different technologies that we use for our barcode imagers, vision systems, and pattern recognition is resulting in a revolutionary system that does it both: it reads barcodes and visually recognizes items. This means that even if barcodes are covered or products are stapled, the system recognizes the item correctly and assigns them to the matching article.
The system that was first introduced by Datalogic has been developed to help grocery retailers to better service their customers by freeing staff especially during peak hours.
