Fujitsu demonstrates new technologies at NRF that address Pain Point for Retailers: Improve Retail Self-Checkout Experience

Patented technology in RFID Gateway at Self-Checkout reads RFID tags quickly and reliably without removing
articles from Basket

Foothill Ranch, CA. January 10, 2019 — Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., a leader in innovative technology and
front-end solutions is previewing the Future of Retail Store Automation in its booth # 4405, at the National Retail
Federation Show and Exhibition (Retail’s Big Show), January 13-15, 2019 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in
New York City. The highlighted demonstration, the Fujitsu RFID Gateway Self-Checkout enables shoppers to checkout
without removing items from their basket while avoiding the long lines at POS. The customer simply moves the
shopping basket into the RFID gateway, presses scan, and all of the articles are read within a few seconds with high
accuracy.


To facilitate payment at the gateway, Fujitsu is demonstrating the SecurPay™ Plus solution, a multi denomination cash
and coin solution that will make payment quick and convenient. The SecurPay™ solution, a non-coin version, will also
be demonstrated. . Once payment is made, a receipt is delivered, the doors to the gateway open automatically and
the customer is free to leave the store quickly. To complement the RFID Gateway Self-Checkout, Fujitsu is also
previewing a RFID Self-Checkout version that is more appropriate for smaller format specialty or apparel stores using
the Fujitsu U-Scan™ Mini-Express Vertical Self-Checkout device that is cashless.


“Fujitsu’s unique application of RFID patented technology addresses one of the major pain points of Retailers: checkout
speed. Instead of customers having to remove each article for checkout in the front of store, now they can simply leave
items in their basket, bag or box, checkout in seconds and be on their way”, says Michi Sugawara, President and CEO of
Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. “We are currently speaking to major retailers who would like to improve their
customers’ checkout experience by conducting a proof-of-concept for these solutions.”


In addition to those mentioned above, Fujitsu will be demonstrating several more solutions including how to easily
track and authenticate Fashion items by embedding RFID tags in Fashion and Formalwear. For retailers that have
multiple POS stations, and cash is distributed and settled in the back office, Fujitsu will have a Paragon™ Series cash
handling system from its partner, Revolution Retail Systems, featuring a Fujitsu G750 bill recycling unit. And finally,
for Retailers that require more security and more convenience with no passwords required for customers and store
associates, Fujitsu is demonstrating a multi-modal, cloud-based identification and Single Sign-on System based on
Fujitsu’s PalmSecure® biometric palm vein technology.
