Strategically important installation of ITAB's self-checkout concept on the UK market

ITAB Shop Concept AB has installed a customized checkout arena, including a full self-service checkout concept and a complete range of store equipment, working in conjunction with one of the largest grocery chains in the United Kingdom.

A leading UK grocery retailer has chosen ITAB as the checkout arena and self-checkout supplier for its new store concept. The installation is of strategic importance to the customer and to ITAB since the new checkout arena incorporating the self-checkout system is the first of its kind in the UK, and will increase efficiency, security and improved customer service in the checkout area. UK has been Europes largest market for Self Check Out technology for the past 10 years.

The installation involved 18 TwinFlows and one fully automated EasyFlow self-checkout systems. Initially the EasyFlow will start up in a learning mode and thereafter will be moved into the checkout arena. The TwinFlow installations are initially manned to improve the customer service experience, and can be switched over to self-checkout mode in stages to suit shopping patterns.

ITAB's self-checkout concept is designed to increase efficiency, create fast and flexible checkout options, free up staff and allow the store to improve its level of service, while at the same time provide increased security. For more information, please visit www.itab.se
