Partner Tech Introduces Modular And AI-Driven Self-Checkout For Multiple Retail Segments

Alfred SCO addresses retailers’ pain points with smart fraud prevention and fewer interventions with a lower TCO that even smaller retailers can afford.

Anaheim, CA (PRWEB) - Partner Tech USA Inc, a global technology company and innovator of intelligent POS and self-service solutions, introduces Alfred SCO, a modular and fully customizable self-checkout solution, which uses artificial intelligence to prevent fraud and speed up the checkout with less interventions.‚Äč By using a modular, space-saving tabletop design, Alfred SCO can be mounted on any type of tabletop, which makes it more flexible and cost-efficient, and retailers can select exactly the components they need for their type of store. No matter if it will be used in a supermarket, convenience, specialty or drug store – Alfred SCO can be customized to address the specific needs with different configurations, security features, and peripherals.

The modular design is based on a powerful touch screen computer, available in three different screen sizes and with several CPU options. Alfred SCO includes an optional produce scale and an adaptive security scale that helps reduce interventions compared to other solutions. The intelligent tri-light indicates the lane status and is available with an optional face ID camera and AI vision for verification of scanned products and fresh produce recognition.

Alfred SCO includes a thermal printer and a high-performance barcode scanner with EAS deactivation option. Compatibility with industry-leading payment terminals, provides support for all the merchants preferred payment types. Partner Tech also offers a cash management module with coin and bill recycling.

As a turnkey solution, Alfred SCO includes an intuitive self-checkout software with a customizable flow and shopper interface. The SCO software connects all the peripherals such as the scanner, scale and camera and uses advanced AI to identify suspicious activities and streamline the checkout. Partner Tech offers an API toolkit for fast and seamless integration with the retailer’s existing POS, thus ensuring that all the functions of the manned POS are maintained.

Remote monitoring provides valuable real-time visibility to the store performance and tracks the usage of the SCO system. With access to the dashboard and detailed usage data, retailers can proactively resolve problems to increase the SCO usage and profitability. Store associates and remote support staff can be alerted about interventions and can use their mobile device or desktop computer to review transactions and resolve issues. This creates a better customer experience while reducing the operational cost.

“Labor shortages and rising operational costs combined with shoppers’ expectations for convenience is transforming the retail industry and we are currently seeing a heavy investment in self-checkout solutions,” says Sandra Hsia, president at Partner Tech USA. “Alfred SCO makes it affordable even for smaller stores to implement and support self-checkout and retailers appreciate the flexibility and small footprint of our SCO solution.”
