ONEPLUSONE AI Intelligent Weighing Solutions
New Employees Can Get Started Quickly
Training new employees is a problem for every enterprise. Traditional weighing key scales are cumbersome to operate. Employers often need to do a lot of training for the new staff. And the staff have to memorize the item codes.
ONEPLUSONE smart AI scale has solved this problem. What you need to do is just place the product on the weighing pan, and the system will automatically recognize the product. Then the operator only needs to tap the corresponding item displayed on the screen to complete the process of weighing.
Since employees do not have to memorize codes by rote, new employees can quickly handle it. Therefore, the training time can be reduced and the efficiency can be improved. During holidays, when many weighing personnel takes leave, other personnel in the store can easily take over at any time without specific training.
Chain supermarkets often face a shortage of manpower before festivals, before the end of the year, or when they do large-scale promotional activities. In these situations, the speed of operation is not quick enough, so it usually leads to crowded customers. Therefore, the enterprise has to recruit more staff. However, when the event ends, the staff begins to be saturated again, which will cause high labor costs.
As long as the weighing personnel in the store use the smart AI scale, the working efficiency will be improved and the labor costs are saved. If customers can be guided to use AI scales to achieve self-service weighing, it will save even more costs.
The supermarket AI scales can provide customers with technological experience. The process is simple: place the item, AI automatic identification, select the product, and take the printed label. In this way, the congestion of weighing queues in stores during peak hours can be alleviated, and situations, where customers leave things and lose performance due to long queues, can be reduced.
The ONEPLUSONE AI visual scale can quickly recognize items in 0.1s, with a high recognition rate of 99%. On average, it takes merely 3-5S to complete the weighing of a single product. Compared with the spent time of at least 10s of the traditional process of memorizing item codes, the operating time of this scale is reduced by at least 50%. This will effectively help improve work efficiency, reduce queues and save customers time.
