merge & match @ Fujitsu profit protection

In retail, the SCO stands for a significant increase in losses. Studies currently show at least a doubling of shrinkage, which are to be budgeted for with the introduction of SCOs.

Retailers agree that the main reason for this is the lack of customer-oriented adaptation of the classic checkout process to SCO procedures. Ultimately, this means that customers will be encouraged to behave incorrectly. The attempt to secure the processes at the SCO with dedicated personnel generates costs that negate the planned cost benefits for retailers. The way in which supervision and, if necessary, controls are carried out is most likely rather unstructured and to a certain extend unprofessional - because security companies are used - and tends to annoy customers. Global Commerce has described its vision for an optimized SCO process to Fujitsu in discussions, e.g. as part of the introduction of the profit protection project.

With merge & match, Fujitsu has developed smart assistance systems that go well beyond the minimum requirements of the retail sector. Fujitsu merge & match intelligently supports the customer throughout the entire self-scan process. The customer is actively navigated through the process and merge & match proactively corrects potential misconduct during the scanning and payment process at the SCO.

Dedicated supervisory staff for checking at the SCO are no longer required for most installations thanks to merge & match. Instead, cashiers from traditional check-outs can take over final approval processes.
