Foothill Ranch, CA. June 18, 2019 —  Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., a leader in innovative technology and front-end solutions, announced the launch of its new RFID self-checkout solution, the U-Scan® Mini-Express RFID. The U-Scan Mini-Express RFID utilizes RFID technology to quickly and efficiently scan items. This allows shoppers to purchase the items without removing them from their hand-held shopping basket. They simply place their basket into the RFID bin and press scan to have their items accurately read within seconds.

Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. will be demonstrating the U-Scan Mini-Express RFID self-checkout solution in booth #2620 at the RFID Journal Live! Retail at RetailX show, June 25-27, 2019 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.

Designed to streamline the point-of-sale process, the U-Scan Mini-Express RFID self-checkout allows retailers to increase sales, reduce costs and improve efficiency. Fast throughput, high accuracy scanning, and an intuitive user interface provide for the most pleasant self-checkout experience ever.

“This unique application of Fujitsu’s RFID technology successfully addresses one of the major pain points of retailers: checkout speed. With the U-Scan Mini-Express RFID, customers can leave their items in their basket and checkout within seconds,” Michi Sugawara, President and CEO of Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., said. “We are excited to offer retailers this solution to improve the customer experience.”

The U-Scan Mini-Express RFID self-checkout’s compact design provides retailers with flexibility, scalability, reliability and usability while eliminating the need to scan individual bar codes at point of sale. With its space-saving footprint and multiple configurations, the U-Scan Mini-Express RFID self-checkout is expected to rapidly expand into new markets in addition to traditional self-checkout markets. Pre-production units are available now.
