Everything under control: Eurogast accelerates check-out processes with state-of-the-art scanning technology from Barcotec
The gastronomy wholesaler Eurogast Sinnesberger in Kirchdorf/Tyrol serves both gastronomy professionals and end customers in its market hall, which will open in December 2019, who benefit equally from the extensive full range, perfect logistics, and a pronounced awareness of service and quality.
In order to meet these demands in the store as well, the requirement of fast acquisition despite bulky goods was put to Barcotec. Around 5,000-6,000 items are scanned at peak times per checkout on individual days. To avoid long waiting times for the customers, a smooth process plays a decisive role.
As a result, Eurogast relies on ProGlove wearable scanners from Barcotec to capture goods for the subsequent payment process. The ProGlove scanners are back-of-hand scanners attached to a cuff with an index finger trigger, support reading of all GS1 standards and are intended for unrestricted use. Extremely compact, lightweight (40 g), efficient to use and easily configurable, the ProGlove Wearable Scanner accelerates work steps with up to 10,000 scans per battery charge.
Employees enjoy maximum flexibility and can support each other at individual checkouts in the event of increased volumes: No lengthy logins are required for this - all that is needed is to scan the QR code of the relevant checkout, and the purchasing process can be handled quickly and efficiently.
Since in the market hall the end customer with the desire for 1 kg of flour is just as likely to find what he is looking for as the bulk consumer who needs 30 kg for the hotel business, it is important that the bulky and sometimes even heavy items can be traded quickly. Unlike in a conventional supermarket, there is no conveyor belt onto which the goods are placed - here, the goods are simply loaded from one trolley to another and scanned in the process. Therefore, Barcotec recommended a scanner that is worn like a glove, so that employees can use their hands without restriction and "really get to work".
Where elsewhere a scanning device was picked up, the scan performed and device put away or plugged in, this is now no longer necessary, as only one step is required.

Training was completed in just a few minutes, and the ProGlove is not only well received by colleagues: Customers also notice the innovation and respond positively across the board. The head of the market hall adds "This allows us to clearly position ourselves as an innovative and service-oriented company."
