Top Supplier Retail 2021 Award

Best AI and Robotics Application

Checklens presented with the “Best AI and Robotics Application” award together with IKEA and Diebold Nixdorf

Checklens, THE A.I. company from Salzburg, Austria, has been honoured as “Top Supplier Retail 2021” in the new category “Best AI and Robotics Application” by the EHI Retail Institute in Cologne at the reta awards. In cooperation with Diebold Nixdorf, Checklens has developed the AI-based system SCAN for IKEA that automatically detects scanning errors at the SCO checkouts. A smart camera above the self-checkout area detects each individual product and notifies the customer via the POS software if a product has not been scanned.

The reta awards are presented annually in 5 categories to companies recognizing the best ideas for technologies in retail . The best ideas and projects are selected by a prominent jury of representatives from industry, science and research.

Scan verification & correct transactions increase the profitability of our clients’ stores.

Co-CEO, Checklens

“We are very excited that IKEA has been recognised for the success of our solutions at the self-checkout station – fewer errors and less stress at the self-checkout make shopping faster and more pleasant,” says Co-CEO Armin Hamzic.

The scan verification also brings many advantages for the employees of the companies: “Employees can thus focus on the valuable and positive customer interactions such as consultations. This increases satisfaction while the number of critical interventions with shoppers decreases,” says Felix Köppl, Co-Founder of Checklens.

At Checklens, we help retailers to improve the shopping experience for their customers: our artificial intelligence (A.I.)-based visual product recognition enables a smooth and frictionless shopping experience. For example, our smart cameras recognise products in-store to help shoppers self-scan.

Checklens is one of the fastest growing A.I. technology companies in Europe with offices in Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Russian Federation. Our international team consists of more than 100 experts in computer vision, data engineering and software engineering and we count the top retailers in Europe among our customers, with installations in Germany, France, Italy, Russia, Belgium and Sweden.
