The name of the company based in Silicon Valley comes from a “mash-up of general intelligence.”

Their revolutionary checkout machines are equipped with several cameras which can be used to identify individual products at checkout.

The Mashgin kiosks can identify food and products with a 99.9 percent accuracy and ring them up automatically.

In a recent partnership with Shift4, the leading secure payment processing solutions company, Mashgin kiosks are at the top of the field.

Jack Hogan, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships at Mashgin exclusively told The U.S. Sun that the “goal” is to make customer experiences “100x better.”

The tech guru said: “Technology advances to meet the needs of society, and right now retailers cannot fill their vacant cashier positions due to a huge labor shortage.

“Many companies are forced to bring in self-checkout in order to meet customer needs – but the customer experience conventional self-checkout kiosks offer is typically terrible.

“It’s our goal to make it 100x better”

Circle K has embarked on a technological overhaul with Mashgin by signing a deal that will see over 10,000 machines installed across over 7,000 locations over the next three years.

However, while a number of retailers and customers find self-checkout kiosks more efficient, some innocent shoppers have been left red-faced.

Some shoppers have found themselves accused of stealing at self-checkouts when they had no intention to.

This comes from a number of easy mistakes such as scanning items too quickly and missing barcodes, being distracted while scanning, and unknowingly covering the camera.

However, Mashgin kiosks remove the need for barcodes and scanning altogether and therefore efficiently tackle both intentional and unintentional theft.

Users simply place all of their items on the weighing pad and the kiosk with its AI cameras will automatically ring up the items.

Mr Hogan said: “By using computer vision to recognize items instead of relying on manual barcode scanning, Mashgin’s Touchless Checkout System prevents clients from knowingly or unknowingly scanning items incorrectly.

“The technology is 99.9% accurate and records an image of every transaction – making it much easier to audit if necessary.”

Meanwhile, some other checkouts are using cameras to complete age-authentification for people purchasing age-restricted products.

Mr Hogan explained how his company’s devices are helping customers: “We help people check out in less than 10 seconds – cutting lines as much as 400%.

“That saves customers time and makes businesses significantly more revenue.”

However, Attorney Stephanie Holan has warned about the risks to customer data with this new technology in stores rather than the risk of being accused of theft.
