StopLift CEO Malay Kundu says that his scan avoidance technology is being used at manned and self-checkouts at retail stores, supermarkets and specialty stores throughout Australia. Up to one out of five items at the self-checkout are not scanned. Shoppers often leave expensive items in a reusable bag while scanning cheaper items. There are many other ways shoppers avoid scanning their purchases at the self-checkout.
Intentional or not, there’s technology that can spot scan avoidance at the checkout as it happens: StopLift. Using artificial intelligence, it can read and flag checkout behaviors; suspicious transactions can be questioned on the spot; and mistakes can be corrected before anyone is labeled a thief. Losing an item means a retailer or supermarket must sell 50 more at the same price to make up the cost. Malay Kundu, Founder and CEO of StopLift, says his technology can ping you as the scan avoidance occurs.
Cashiers are “sweethearting” pumpkins and other items for their friends by not scanning them at the checkout. Malay Kundu of StopLift, whose surveillance technology detects sweethearting, says this theft costs retailers $14 billion annually.
Even that Thanksgiving turkey is costing supermarkets – and you – money. Who’s watching those overhead cameras at the checkout? Supermarkets and retailers have implemented StopLift, whose technology detects unpaid merchandise on the conveyor belt, in the shopping cart, or reusable bag at both the manned and self-checkout.
Turkeys are being stolen in plain sight at the checkout. Malay Kundu, CEO of StopLift Checkout Vision Systems, has software in supermarkets across the U.S. that is detecting unscanned turkeys and all other items.
StopLift’s ScanItAll™ video analytics software uses your existing checkout cameras to visually determine what occurs during each and every POS transaction to identify loss at both manned and self-checkouts.
