There is a clear trend toward more checkout options and flexibility in retail today. Retailers look for combinations of regular tills, self-scanning systems and self-checkouts to better fit their individual store layouts and concepts. At the same time, there is a growing demand for self-service options among shoppers. A Self-Checkout solutions are a particularly good fit for retailers with a high number of transactions and medium-size baskets. It means significant savings on labour costs, since up to eight systems can be manned by just one attendant. The solution also improves the checkout experience, since more checkouts can be available. This can be particularly important during peak hours, when shoppers may leave without making a purchase if the lines at the checkouts are too long.

Alfred SCO Self-Checkout & Payment

For many shoppers, self-service checkout is no longer an option; it’s an expectation. By combining self-service with traditional checkout lanes, customers are given a greater sense of control, privacy and convenience in their shopping experience.

Alfred Self-Checkout allows the user to carry out all stages of purchase independently: item scanning or weighing and the payment. By making checkout process more autonomous, the system minimizes person-to-person contact and creates more safe environment which is particularly critical during a virus pandemic.

To optimize the store footprint Alfred Self-Checkout comes in a variety of configurations, styles and sizes that fit the specifics of multiple market verticals, be it Convenience, Apparel, DIY store or a Hotel.

Improved fraud detection
In providing SCO security, items can be verified by tag deactivation or by weight using integrated security scales, powered by self-learning weight database. However weight-based theft detection and item tag deactivation may not always be enough to prevent fraudulent shoppers behavior.

In addition to these two technologies, Alfred Self-Checkout can be enhanced with integrated computer vision, which helps significantly reduce shoplifting issues at Self-Checkout. The system would then estimate each item to be purchased recognizing it by three dimensions: the item’s bar code, weight, and real image, and alert the store staff to discrepancies.


Modular & Compact
Provides flexibility and customization to best fit specifics of your business and optimizes the store footprint.

Ensures quick and faultless service. Transactions finalized in a matter of seconds.

Reduces shrinkage and strengthens loss prevention
An integrated computer vision functionality lets efficiently reduce the number of shoplifting issues at  Self-Checkout.

Vending Connection

Combine the Self-Checkout with a solution for premium price products that eliminates losses and optimises inventory operations. Premium price products are stored in the secure Vensafe solution. This protects profits by preventing all losses due to shoplifting or employee theft.

With Vensafe, retailers don’t have to store it or restock in every checkout – only in the Vensafe solution dispenser. This improves inventory operations and increases productivity – staff resources can be used for more productive tasks than restocking. The solution also achieves better inventory management and control through a software solution that communicates inventory information. It tracks stock in real time and sends out-of-stock alerts. This eliminates manual work and helps save on labour costs.
