Platform vs App

What's different about the FutureProof platform compared to mobile self scanning apps?


The FutureProof platform is designed to grow with the retailer's technology needs over time without causing lock-in. It is independent of the retailer's specific point of sale and back office software which frees it from the typical upgrade cycle. It is fully cloud hosted and regular updates bring new features to shoppers and staff. Unlike third party branded apps the grocer owns the install, allowing them to replace FutureProof should another solution better fit their needs - without losing any of their users. This is why it is called "FutureProof."

Frequently Asked Questions

What about loss prevention?

Self scanning customers must share their identity to use the service and are a retailers best behaved guests.

Shopper's provide a photograph, name and payment information along with additional identifiers relating to their phone. The identification deters deliberate criminals who rely on anonymity to get away with bold thefts.

More impulsive shoplifters can be deterred and detected by installing one or more Loss Prevention Checkpoints, which along with unique sweethearting detection make self scanning more secure than a standard checkout or self checkout kiosk.

Is it compatible with my existing systems?

FutureProof's mobile self scanning takes product and price data as an input and generates transaction logs as an output. Retailers can provide the product and price data in whatever format they have it, and FutureProof will do the translation and return the transaction logs in the format of the retailer's choice. Unless a retailer has lost the ability to export and import their own data their system is compatible with FutureProof.
