In Tokyo, a bakery installs an interactive board to help better serve its clients
In Tokyo, a bakery is using a visual recognition system to calculate customers’ bills.
Thanks to an intelligent check-out system, Dominique Geulin bakery in Tokyo has decided to save time and reduce queues. By allowing this interactive table, which is equipped with a sensor that recognises the products being sold, the bill is calculated automatically to manage the busy periods around lunchtime and dinner. Customers aren’t left to their own devices however: for even the slightest query, vendors are on hand to personally check the bill and ensure the correct price is being charged.
This innovative system ensures part-time employees don’t have to learn the name and price off all the pastries. The results are striking: Dominique Geulin has greatly reduced waiting times. Not to worry though, customers still have someone to speak to in case of any problems. The time gained obviously attracts the busiest customers.
This concept has been extended to every product that can be recognised by form or colour.
