The new checkout counter was developed for supermarkets, groceries and other retail outlets. It’s designed to appeal to self-service customers, who value speedy checkout, and more traditional customers, who want to keep the human element part of their retail experience.

The counter’s patent-pending, parallel-scanning support is unique to the HybridCheckout system. Its design—and the speed of experienced cashiers—ensure that checkout can be completed more quickly than with other checkout methods.
How the HybridCheckout counter can improve retail businessesThere are (at least) four ways that the Model 7C improve retail business from owner, employee and customer points of view:
- Faster checkouts, more throughput. Time tests of checkout transactions using the Model 7C show increases of up to 100% in checkout throughput.
- Smaller footprint. HybridCheckout counters are a floor space saver. Counter footprints are up to 40% smaller than standard checkout counters.
- Improved work environment. By substantially reducing the amount of lifting cashiers must do, the Model 7C’s ergonomic design reduces the physical strain on store staff members.
- Improved customer satisfaction. The Model 7C’s design delivers what surveys tell us customer want in their retail experience—speedy checkouts and the human touch. It’s a sure formula for customer satisfaction and loyalty.
