"European supermarkets could save up to €80bn every year by following the lead of a Fujitsu customer who integrated cameras with barcode scanners, to provide a low cost solution to reduce fraud."
This European multi-national retailer is one of the largest hypermarkets in the world with over 12,000 outlets in over 30 countries.
This leading retailer, in common with many others, uses self-checkouts to provide convenience to customers, however, these can be subject to fraudulent transactions, estimated to cost the industry up to €80bn annually. It wanted to find a solution that would minimize the potential for fraud while seamlessly integrating with existing services.
The company has trialled FUJITSU AI-based Fraud Prevention, which uses inexpensive cameras fitted to existing checkouts, to take multiple photos of each scanned item and compare it to an extensive dataset in milliseconds, using sophisticated AI to determine the product based on weight, size, color and brand.
