In the always-changing world of retail, one thing always remains constant: the importance of customer convenience. As stores aim to make shopping better for their customers, tech is making a big difference. Among these advancements, Computer Vision Point-of-Sale (POS) systems have gained prominence, offering a seamless and efficient shopping experience. In this blog post, we’ll dig into how stores can use Computer Vision Frictionless-Checkout Kiosks, especially when they choose Digit7’s DigitKart kiosk.

The Rise of Self-Checkout Kiosks

We’ve all been in the self-check-out line and when it is our turn to ring up our items there is something wrong, right? The barcode can’t be read by the POS or the item is not recognized. These common mishaps can lead to your customers abandoning their items, or migrating to your competitor because their POS is more accurate and easier to use. The retail industry trends show that self-pay POS is not going away. Consumers are moving more and more toward adopting this technology because of the time savings, convenience and efficiency they provide. The retail POS of the future will let you scan and pay for your stuff all on your own, no need for a cashier. Thanks to advanced computer vision technology, these kiosks are getting even better.

Computer vision is all about machines having the smarts to make sense of what they see in the world. In the context of retail, this technology allows frictionless-checkout kiosks to identify products, track items and ensure accurate billing—all without the need for barcodes or manual entry.
