Better Online Solutions' RFID and Mobile Division Receives Order for Retail Self-Scanning Project

B.O.S Better Online Solutions, an Israeli provider of RFID and mobile solutions and a global provider of supply chain solutions to enterprises, has announced that its RFID and Mobile Division has received an order for a self-scanning solution, for use in a pilot program conducted by a food retail chain in Israel.

Self-scanning enables shoppers to tally up their purchases while in the store, and to then bag and pay for their items without cashier assistance. B.O.S.'s RFID and Mobile Division will source the equipment and provide the retailer with integration services of such equipment as scanners, wireless infrastructure, a mobile device-management application and docking stations.

"This is part of the global automated store trend led by Amazon," said Yuval Viner, B.O.S.'s co-CEO, in a prepared statement. "We are pleased to be part of the first self-scanning pilot conducted by a food retail chain in Israel. We expect the testing to be completed in a few months."
