Spar UK Partner To Trial 'Scan, Pay And Go' App

Spar UK partner Henderson Group has announced that it is to trial the Ubamarket 'Scan, Pay and Go' app in its EDGEPoS system in selected Spar and Eurospar stores in Northern Ireland.

Ubamarket's app will enable customers to write a shopping list on their phone, scan product barcodes as they shop, without having to re-scan them at the till, as well as pay by using their phone thanks to the in-app payments function, the retailer said.

“Ubamarket provides retailers and consumers with a nimble scan-and-go system, enabling them to enjoy the convenient service offered on online platforms, in bricks and mortar stores,” commented Will Broome, chief executive of Ubamarket.

Self-Checkout

The app will also work alongside the new self-checkout systems developed by Henderson Technology, which are appearing in a growing number of stores in Northern Ireland.

Commenting on the announcement, Darren Nickels, head of Henderson Technology, said, “We know from the stores we own and operate in the group, that customer needs and expectations are changing, and we are ensuring our solutions meet those needs both now and into the future."
