"Fujitsu helped us to work on our checkout waiting times and flow. Auchan wanted to offer its customers choice, both on the shelves and at the checkout. The new concepts, developed in partnership with Fujitsu, have enhanced the experience for our customers and made the sales process more flexible, whilst also improving working conditions for our employees."
