SATO America, a leader in modern identification and labeling solutions, is helping supermarkets, grocery stores and convenience chains better manage inventory, reduce expired products and optimize labor costs through two new offerings.

SATO Dynamic Pricing removes this barrier by automatically repricing products as they near their sell-by date, appealing to price-conscious consumers and reducing the volume of expirations by moving older products first.

Fujitsu Frontech’s self-checkout solution U-SCAN Venture will be on display. U-SCAN Venture is built on top of the updated Fujitsu Cash Automated Solution SmartCASH SE cash box module, a full currency and coin recycling unit now with bulk coin acceptance.

Fujitsu Frontech is expanding self-service with an in-aisle solution for non-barcoded and/or weighted items. Using Fujitsu’s A.I. technology, U-SCAN VisionScale automatically identifies items, weighs, and prints a self-adhesive barcode label that can be scanned at POS, self-checkout, or via mobile shopping applications to easily complete the transaction.

Fujitsu Frontech will also be exhibiting several self-service innovations, including the cashless U-SCAN Express+ SCO, U-SCAN BOLT self-service kiosk, and an innovative suite of retail software tools designed for simplified reporting, interventions, and more.
