NEW YORK, Oct. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- FutureProof Retail (FPR), the leading provider of line-free mobile checkout and service counter solutions, and Scandit, the leading enterprise technology platform for mobile computer vision, barcode scanning and augmented reality, have entered into a partnership that enables retailers to deploy FPR's line-free mobile self-scanning checkout and service counter solutions fully integrated with Scandit's Barcode Scanner SDK.
The integrated solution, currently in operation at Spar supermarkets and OKay convenience stores in Belgium, allows shoppers to use their smartphones to scan items while they are shopping, with scanning speeds typically only seen in commercial-grade handheld scanners. Customers are able to view the current total of their shopping basket and at any time, can simply pay with their mobile device and avoid waiting in line at checkout.
Retailers who deploy FPR's line-free mobile checkout solution no longer lose customers because of wait times. Other benefits include the ability to offer personalized specials for each customer, increasing basket size and shopping frequency. In addition, retailers avoid having to implement expensive hardware with a solution that allows shoppers to bring their own device.
The line-free mobile checkout approach is becoming popular among retailers as it improves customer convenience. Now any retailer can adopt this leading-edge strategy and offer customers the most user-friendly solution in the market, eliminating lines at the cash register as well as service counters.
"Scandit's industry-leading barcode scanning technologies perfectly complement our mobile platform," said Di Di Chan, president of FutureProof Retail. "With this partnership, we're excited to be able to offer mobile self-scanning using shoppers' smartphones with fast and robust scanning technology."
"Mobile self-scanning apps enable brick-and-mortar retailers to offer customers a blended physical-digital shopping experience that combines the convenience of e-commerce with the immediacy of the store," said Samuel Mueller, co-founder and CEO of Scandit. "We are proud to integrate Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK into the FutureProof Retail app to enable retailers to provide maximum speed and scanning performance to their shoppers."
