Contactless Shopping with Self‑Scanning

Scandit turns consumer smartphones into enterprise-grade barcode scanners so retailers can offer a contactless shopping experience.

Safe Shopping is Fuelling Self‑Scanning Adoption

The pandemic has spurred a massive take-up in self-scanning mobile apps. For grocers, it is a way to offer safe shopping to people on their weekly stock-up. For general retailers – as it becomes more popular – self-scanning will make the difference between whether consumers use your store or not.

Self‑Scanning Cuts Checkout Waits & Frees Up Staff

Self‑scanning on personal smartphones means customers can shop safely. It reduces the need to touch items in-store as well as the need to use the checkout.

Consumers simply use a Scandit-powered app to scan items as they shop, and pay. Then they leave – so there’s no need to interact with staff. It’s both convenient, and contactless.

To make it easier, Scandit software enables retailers to rapidly deploy self-scanning apps. These apps will perform with exceptional accuracy and unmatched speed. Self-scanning reduces shopping time. So the store can serve more customers and add to the bottom line.
