Self Checkouts

Always open, with the right staffing at the right time

Interest in new methods, secure payment and efficient checkout processes in stores has increased dramatically in recent years. With a self checkout solution, you can always have a checkout open, at any time of the day or night.

The manned checkouts are optimised to cope with peaks and the staff are available for more service-oriented tasks in the store at other times.


The world’s first fully automated checkout

ITAB has developed efficient self checkouts (SCOs) so that consumers can easily check out their goods securely themselves. Our first self checkout solution was installed in 2003 in the Netherlands. Since then, we have also launched the world’s first fully automated checkout, EasyFLOW.

In our wide range, you can choose between efficient self checkouts in various sizes, integration with the commonest payment systems and user-friendly interfaces, plus a very secure exit function.

Flexible service with FrontMate/TwinFLOW – a combination of manned checkout and self checkout

FrontMate creates a new meeting space between customers and staff in the checkout area. By combining traditional manned service with express service in a single area, it gives customers the opportunity to choose how they want to check out. It also gives them the feeling they have easy access to personal service. With our FrontMate solution, customers receive the same level of service, regardless of their checkout method.

Future of Self Check is in the air, we call it AirFlow

After our ground-breaking EasyFlow/HyperFlow automatic self-checkouts, ITAB is now moving to the next level. Items are checked out automatically when you pick them off the shelf. 

This is our next strategic step to make stores about service and experience rather than scanning.

The range for your checkout arena also includes a number of items of scanner furniture such as checkout towers, scales tables, bag shelves, scanner towers and scanner walls. The furniture can be adapted to your IT hardware  from any manufacturer.

The furnitures are made of durable material that withstands tough treatment, they have a modern design and are available in your profile colours.
