Wolki Farm in Australia has opened its first unattended store with Scan & Go from FutureProof Retail (FPR).

Customers download FPR's Express Checkout app and enter the store with a PIN. They then simply scan their items with the app, bag their items and pay in the app to complete their purchase. No cash register, no waiting in line. Customers can get specials in the app and see their total at any time.

To secure the store, Wolki uses an airlock with two doors so only one customer can enter the store at a time as well as video cameras, microphones and speakers so the store can be monitored remotely and customers can still ask questions.

"FPR's Scan & Go is the perfect solution for a small store such as our butchery. There was no upfront cost, and it was operational in a few days," says Jacob Wolki, Owner of Wolki Farm. 

"Wolki Farm is a perfect example of how direct-to-consumer businesses that cannot afford to fully staff their store can utilize Scan & Go to allow their customers to shop anytime, 24/7, which adds a competitive edge," says Di Di Chan, President of FutureProof Retail. "Wolki Farm's members immediately adopted shopping with our Express Checkout app."

FPR's Scan & Go solution can be deployed in any store format and works for large supermarkets as well as for micro markets. Retailers can choose between a white label app and FPR's universal Express Checkout app. FPR's solution is already available at many retail chains and individually owned stores in North America, Europe and Asia.
