The collaboration delivers a much-needed solution to enable an efficient mobile shopping experience, allowing customers the convenience of a fully autonomous shopping experience for a 'bigger shop.'  Combining Checkpoint's 50 years of loss prevention experience, with Supersmart's proprietary algorithms and image capture and Bizerba's industry leading technology and weight management, customers are assured an improved shopping experience without the frustrations and delays of crowded stores and long queues.  Additionally, retailers are assured they can continue to utilize the full portfolio of Checkpoint source tagged merchandise and high theft solutions to protect their most targeted merchandise from potential theft and organized retail crime.

A recent ECR report titled, Self-Checkout in Retail: Measuring Loss, found retailers have a desire to move towards Self-Checkout, Scan and Go and other Frictionless solutions.  However, the ECR study concludes although retailers may be increasing customer satisfaction the risk of shrink increases significantly, as utilization of the new technologies increases, shrink has increased as 50-60%.  "Working with Supersmart and Bizerba, we are excited to deliver solutions which meet the needs of retailers and consumers," said Alan Tamny, Global Director Product Management, Checkpoint Systems.  "Together we can provide solutions to improve customer satisfaction while at the same time providing the loss prevention options our clients rely on, without having to overhaul their current EAS or source tagging programs.  This enables retailers to shift towards this new technology in a controlled way helping to maximize convenience and minimize loss."

"Self-Checkout not only improves the shopping process, but improves the overall shopping experience," said Yair Cleper, Founder and CEO of Supersmart.  "With our algorithm-based, Bizerba's industry leading weight system and Checkpoint's product protection, we offer customers and retailers alike the next generation of frictionless shopping experience."

A demonstration of the first such collaboration will be shown at the National Retail Federation Big Show in NYC, January 13-15, 2019 at Checkpoint Solutions' ( booth 4373, 5008) and at the Bizerba booth 4905.  For inquiries and appointments, contact:
