SALT LAKE CITY, March 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OMNIQ Corp. (NASDAQ: OMQS) (“OMNIQ” or the “Company”), a provider of Supply Chain and Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based Machine Vision solutions, announced the rollout of 1,000 units of the Smart Buy and Go (SBG) solution for one of Israel’s largest supermarket chains by Dangot Computers Ltd, a subsidiary of OMNIQ. The Company plans to offer its SBG solution to its customers in the United States. According to The Wall Street Journal: “In North America, groceries are a $1 trillion industry, with 90% of grocery sales taking place in stores.”
Smart Buy and Go solutions are in growing demand by customers all around the world, and the grocery industry is responding. In October 2021, TechCrunch reported “Instacart acquired Caper AI, a smart cart and instant checkout startup, for $350 million, as it moves deeper into physical retail tech.” According to an article published in the Washington Post, smart cart solutions may cost between $5,000 and $10,000 per cart . OMNIQ-Dangot’s SBG solution is affordable at a fraction of the cost, compared to other smart cart solutions generating a potential higher and quicker return for owners.
The usage of an SBG solution enables the store to minimize lines and provide a better shopping experience. The solution enables customers to receive a specific terminal on which they scan the products as they put them in the regular shopping cart. Once finished with the shopping, the customer places the terminal back into a cradle and the payment is processed automatically allowing the customer to exit the store and go straight to their car.
Shai Lustgarten, CEO of OMNIQ: “In line with our AI based solutions for automation of parking which eliminates lines while exiting parking lots, our new Smart Buy and Go solution is another of example of improving quality of life and minimizing friction. We are proud to market this solution in Israel and soon to offer it to our Fortune 500 U.S. customers, including some of the largest supermarket chains in North America.”
