Self-checkout system Mashgin has announced it will integrate with payments solutions provider Verifone, reported Fintech Finance News.

The integration will allow Mashgin to deploy its computer vision self-checkout system to the more than 50,000 convenience stores that currently use Verifone’s site management solution, wrote Fintech Finance. Verifone’s Commander system is also certified for fuel networks.

Mashgin uses AI and computer vision to identify food or merchandise “with 99.9% accuracy.” Instead of ringing up individual items or scanning barcodes, customers put their items on the Mashgin kiosk tray, and the system identifies the items and rings them up together.

The companies said the integration will “enable retailers to supercharge checkout speeds by adding one or several Mashgin self-checkout kiosks while running payments, fueling operations and loyalty programs via one central Commander Site Controller. C-store operators using Verifone will be able to easily add Mashgin units as a checkout option, cutting down deployment times significantly,” wrote Fintech Finance.

“Our goal is to enable as many retailers as possible to cut lines and empower their staff by adding a convenient self-checkout option,” said Jack Hogan, SVP of partnerships at Mashgin. “The integration with Verifone’s industry-leading Commander system will make Mashgin an attractive option for tens of thousands of convenience retailers in the United States and abroad.”

Mashgin said it’s technology processes transactions 400% faster than a typical cashier with average checkout times of 10-15 seconds, resulting in shorter lines.
