Cybercom developing fully automated checkout counter for ITAB


2011-02-25, 09:00
Cybercom is partnering with ITAB to develop the next generation of fully automated checkout systems. Using innovative patented technology, the automated checkout system identifies customer products without barcodes.  

The new system will be launched tomorrow, in Germany at one of the world's largest retail trade shows. Instead of scanning barcodes, the automatic checkout system employs scales, cameras and other sensors to analyze and automatically identify products placed on the conveyor belt.

"We chose Cybercom for their local delivery. They have outstanding and extensive expertise and capability to manage a project from start to finish," says Carl von Sydow, CEO for ITAB Scanflow AB.

Cybercom develops the new ITAB EasyFlow system from a research prototype to a completed product. A dozen consultants from Cybercom will work on software development, testing, hardware development and project management.

"This is an incredibly exciting opportunity for us to help a customer bring new technology to the market," says Patrik Lägermo, Cybercom account manager. "With this new system, stores will be able to replace the often stressful and monotone cashier tasks with better service inside the store."
