System Indicates Checkout Line Speeds
The store in Papillion, an Omaha suburb, features towers that glow green, yellow and orange to signal the speed with which each line is moving. The technology, called Feloh, is from IndaFlow, an Omaha startup. Feloh keeps track of the number of carts, the items in those carts, their movements, and cashier actions to classify the lines’ speed.
Feloh can also alert cashiers when there are items in the bottom of a customer’s cart. It also provides both real-time and historical data on the number of carts and customers.
