Frito-Lay to Feature Ergonomic Checkout in its Innovation Center
Pan-Oston, a designer and manufacturer of retail checkout and display solutions, has been tapped as the featured checkout lane provider for the Frito-Lay research innovation center, a simulation supermarket used to study shopper behaviors.
The Bowling Green, Ky.-based vendor’s ErgoLane — an ergonomically designed checkout lane — was installed at the center as a component of the consumer shopping experience analysis.
The ErgoLane, which Pan-Oston said meets or exceeds ADA compliance for both cashiers and customers, was developed to use less space than a conventional lane, provide enhanced user comfort, speed up customer transaction times, and increase the number of hourly transactions. It also meets LEED rating system requirements, according to the vendor.
Plano-Texas-based Frito-Lay is a brand of PepsiCo.
