Self-Service Supermarket Check-Out

Self-service checkout has become accepted by supermarket shoppers in the U.S. who are embracing the convenience of scanning and bagging their own groceries. In fact, industry observers believe that self-checkouts will become more popular than pay-at-the-pump gas stations.

IAS was an early entrant into this market, with patented technology that enables customers to scan any size order—not just the standard "Express Lane" 15 items or less that other companies' systems are limited to. IAS's scanners were installed at U-Check Supermarket in Salem, Utah- the world's first fully automated supermarket. The results are impressive; all 12 checkout lanes have been self-scan and monitored by one cashier. An automated store employs only 18 people, less than a third of the number of employees at a traditional supermarket



Self Service Scanner

Now, IAS is pushing the supermarket technology farther, with more payment convenience for customers;allowing them to pay by cash, check, or credit and debit cards, without the assistance of a cashier or clerk. In addition, IAS is poised to introduce a similar self-service, order-and-pay capability into a new market: fast-food restaurants.

With IAS's new self-cashiering product, a customer can not only scan in a full cart of groceries, but is able pay for the order by check, cash, credit or debit card—without the involvement of a store employee. Payment by check can now be fully automated—a big step toward making supermarket checkout quicker and easier.

Fingerprint Security

How? IAS has developed a system that uses biometrics and a digital camera to verify the check-writer's ID and accept payment. This system, built on IAS's existing high-volume self-checkout technology, is designed to further elevate the convenience of shoppers, and enable store managers to focus their employees on service in other areas.
