Yesterday is the last weekend before Chinese New Year 2014, (CNY 2014) few of the shopping complex (hypermarket like TESCO and AEON Big) are crowned and long queue on cashier counters.
Crowned and long queue on cashier counters especially during festival seasons and promotion period is the common issue in Malaysia's hypermarket.
The management of those hypermarket should think how to speed up the process of payment at a cashier counter thus reduce the long queue and frustrations.
An innovative Point of Sale (POS) system designed to provide a more efficient, streamlined service to improve productivity and security at the 'front-end' of the store. This is made possible by new trolley/ basket scanning technology, which uses Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) techniques to scan a trolley or basket full of groceries in a few seconds.
The POS system is fully automated, does not need an operator, or involve handling cash. Its features include: a three axis scanner to detect and identify (in any orientation) the transponder or tag attached to each item; electronic payment with smartcards or magnetic swipe cards; and Electronic Article Surveillance to protect the retailer from theft.
