An overview

Cameras and computer vision track shopper movement and connect their actions with retailer operations applications—allowing for sales transactions and customer information to be accurately managed.

Seamless shopping

Video analytics and Internet of Things (IoT) devices identify and track items as shoppers add them to their physical cart. As they continue to shop, their virtual cart is updated in near real time.

Fast, accurate

When entering the store, shoppers check in using a credit card or loyalty app. Once they're done shopping, they can simply exit the store. A digital receipt is then automatically generated.
