Generally, in all super markets the payment method is same. Sales representatives scan the bar-code one by one from each product. Product name, quantity and its price automatically saves in software database. After the completion of scanning process. Sales representatives print out invoice and receive payment from customer. While helper pours purchased items in shopping bags side by side. This whole process takes around 10 to 15 minutes to complete.

On the contrary, the new system will not only scan all items but also pack them simultaneously. With the help of radio frequency technology REJI ROBO can scan all bar-codes from products at once. A complete detail of every purchased item can be seen on a monitor. In some super markets, who owned this new billing system, have placed some baskets on billing counters. Customers leave their goods on billing counter along with baskets.

After completion of scanning and billing process, bottom of basket opens and all purchased items transfer into the shopping bags automatically, which later on handed over to the customer. This entire procedure takes just 1 to 2 minutes.

This is the best way of shopping and saves valuable time of customers.
