Pan-Oston Adds Auto Attendant Self-Checkout Option to Utopia Line

Smart retail counter and checkout solutions provider Pan-Oston last week launched the newest model in its Utopia self-checkout product range.

Called the Auto Attendant conversion kit, the self-checkout solution is designed exclusively for the independent grocer with four to six lanes, and was created to bolt onto an existing lane, as it has the same footprint as a traditional cash stand.

“Pan-Oston’s new Utopia Auto Attendant self-checkout is an N.G.A. exclusive product,” said Frank DiPasquale, EVP of the National Grocers Association. “The Auto Attendant conversion kit gives our members with four to six lanes all the operating and customer satisfaction benefits of self-checkout at a very reasonable cost, and the ability to reuse their existing checkout lane and peripherals.”

The Auto Attendant is built upon the Utopia self-checkout platform that that is designed to be a plug-and-play self-checkout solution that works with both Microsoft.NET or Linux software, and offers grocers the choice of scan, bag and pass lanes; traditional modular units; in-counter or countertop units; and even a cashier-optional model.

“Our Auto Attendant was developed to give smaller grocers all the benefits of self-checkout,” said Jim Vance, President of Bowling Green, Ky.-based Pan-Oston. “By using their existing lanes and peripherals, the cost of entry is much lower. And, with a Bank Note Recycler in their Utopia Auto Attendant, they can reduce their cash-till requirements by thousands of dollars.”
