Colryut reta award 2024

Colruyt Lowest Prices store in Halle has unveiled an innovative easy check-out system utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically scan products as workers transfer them from one shopping cart to another. Developed by Colruyt Group’s innovation team, Smart Technics, the system aims to boost efficiency by up to one fifth and offers a more ergonomic experience for workers who can now use both hands. The AI-powered camera recognizes up to 85% of products, distinguishing and choosing the correct bar code even on multi-packs. The system is currently being tested with real customers, and a wider rollout is anticipated based on its success.

“At Colruyt Lowest Prices we have, for years, strived to offer a checkout system that offers a high level of convenience for our customers. By moving goods from caddy to caddy we’re able to offer a service that is efficient, convenient & offers ergonomic benefits for our employees.
In order to continuously innovate we have, in cooperation with our in-house innovation partner Smart Technics, turned to computer vision and artificial intelligence techniques to now deploy an upgraded version that allows store employees to employ both hands to transfer the goods, thereby eliminating the required usage of a scan gun.
This gives our checkout system a new lease on life by significantly upgrading the scanning speed at our checkouts, while offering additional ergonomic benefits.”
