- Mashgin is the world’s fastest self-checkout and computer vision solution, speeding transaction times to under ten seconds.
- Some of the key drivers of the adoption of this technology include consumers not wanting to wait. Lines are also getting worse due to labor shortages. Post-pandemic shoppers are visiting smaller locations to quickly grab a couple of items rather than making major trips to the grocery store.
- A very attractive user for this type of solution is the habitual customer that is purchasing the same thing day after day and wants to get in and get out quickly.
- Mashgin has expanded from a primary presence in cafeterias and stadiums, to convenience stores and petrol stations. They have added capabilities that consumers demand such as accepting cash, incorporating loyalty programs, and purchasing gas.
