bp Picks Grabango to Power Cashierless Checkout at Amoco and ampm Stores
Ten stores to be retrofitted with the tech.
Energy giant bp will retrofit ten of its locations with Grabango’s cashierless checkout technology, the two companies announced today. Seven ampm stations in Northern California and three Amoco locations in Western Pennsylvania will be the first to integrate the new checkout system starting in mid-2022.
Grabango makes a camera/computer vision based checkout system for retailers. Customers download the Grabango app prior to entering the store. Once inside, they shop as they normally would with Grabango’s cameras and AI keeping track. Once done, Grabango creates a special code that is scanned on a Grabango device as shoppers exit the store, charging shoppers automatically and providing a receipt.
This could be just the tip of the iceberg for bp and Grabango. In today’s press announcement, a bp rep said “there is potential to bring Grabango’stechnology to our entire network.”
