StoreNext Resells Self-Checkout Solution for Small GrocersBy Dan Berthiaume | Posted 2008-02-05 Email Print
The grocery technology vendor adds new Fujitsu self-checkout systems to its product line aimed at independent and regional grocers.
StoreNext Retail Technologies, a subsidiary of Retailix USA, announced Feb. 4 that it will offer the U-Scan Genesis self-checkout solution from Fujitsu Transaction Solutions to its customers, who are predominantly small independent and regional grocery chains.
U-Scan Genesis features include Fujitsu TeamPoS terminals, two-handed scanning, user interfaces that support up to 12 languages and high-performance bill dispensers. Tony van Seventer, vice president of marketing and products for StoreNext, said U-Scan Genesis is a logical fit for StoreNext's customer base of small grocery retailers.
"Fujitsu U-Scan is really aimed across the board, but in our view, Genesis is particularly suited to smaller grocers," said van Seventer, adding that U-Scan Genesis' small footprint is a key aspect of the system. "A lot of small grocers don't have flexibility or footprint at the front of the store. You can get much more economy with the number of lanes and can fit it in the front end in places that weren't practical with larger units."
