| Best of Both Worlds - Checkout and Self Service! |
Accurate prices for shopper selected fruits and vegetables.
A complete self-service labeling and checkout weighing solution is a smart way to operate because it reduces time at checkout, improves accuracy of identification, helps customers know the price of the product before checkout, reduces security labor in the produce department, and reduces losses due to theft and error. Retailer experiences have shown that these combined solutions pay for themselves within a matter of months.
| Retailers improve operations with New Checkout Point-of-sale Scale |
Retailing is a business of finding the pennies that leak away store profit. Can you imagine saving a penny or more on every fresh item you weigh in the checkout lane?
Hundreds of fresh products are weighed and priced at checkout each day in the grocery. Proper performance of the checkout scale is critical for optimal pricing of fresh goods. First, it is important to understand a few fundamentals about what is going on behind the counter. W&M regulations require that the weight of the bag, known as the tare weight, must be subtracted from the weight of the total purchase. This ensures that the shopper only pays for the produce and not the plastic bag. Most retailers automatically deduct this tare weight through their POS system.
| Traceability Made Easy |
Evalutate their processes and equipment to meet EU Regulation 178/2002: Article 18 “Traceability”.
