NEW YORK, January 13, 2019 (Newswire.com) - For the 2019 NRF “Big Show,” FutureProof Retail (FPR) the leading developer of mobile self-scanning checkout solutions, will provide select attendees personally guided real-live demos at one of New York City’s busiest and most iconic grocery retailer chains, Fairway Market - a mere few minute’s walk from the Javits Center.

NRF 2019 attendees will have a prime opportunity to see and learn about line-free mobile checkout -- up close and personal in a real-world environment. NRF 2019 is being held at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City, January 13-15.

Fairway Market is the first grocer in NYC to provide shoppers a mobile self-scanning checkout option, having rolled out the app starting in September 2018. Since then, Fairway’s Mobile Checkout app has garnered extremely high ratings and positive reviews:

4.9 - App Store Rating
94% - of post-purchase experience ratings are 4-stars or more
2.4 second - AVG checkout time *
99.8% - accuracy rate **

*Checkout time is measured from the moment the shopper indicates they want to checkout until the time they receive their receipt. It includes purchases that have customer service at checkout (ie: bag checks are factored into this average)

** Accuracy rate is the percentage of items which, when randomly audited by staff, were correctly scanned by the shopper.

Please contact us directly at NRFBigShow@futureproofretail.com to arrange a personally guided tour.

Retailers can also try the FPR’s solution integrated with partner technologies at NRF. Digimarc (booth #3449) is showing FutureProof Retail's app enabled with Digimarc’s Mobile SDK which makes it even easier for shoppers to scan packaging and leave the store without going through checkout. Bizerba (booth #4905) is demonstrating the integration of FPR’s solution with its retail scales to seamlessly add produce or bulk foods by scanning a QR code on and also to manage order queues for deli and prepared food items directly on Bizerba’s counter scales.

“Offering in-store tours right around the corner from the Javits Center is the perfect showcase to highlight how mobile self-scanning checkout solutions are enabling innovative retailers like Fairway Market to bring digital convenience and speed to brick-and-mortar experiences,” said William Hogben, CEO of FutureProof Retail.

FPR’s solution, downloaded for free by shoppers from the iOS and Google Play platforms, allows shoppers to move around the store and to scan products using the Fairway-branded mobile Checkout app on their mobile phones; then scan a QR code and simply exit the store -- without waiting in line at the cash register. Digital scales for shoppers to weigh fruit and vegetables are available in-store.
