Payments company POS Upgrades and computer vision platform AlwaysAI entered into a strategic partnership to bring turnkey visual-recognition systems for food and other items at the point-of-sale to POSU's customers. These systems will allow vendors to tie all aspects of contactless service -– from item recognition to customer identification – into an integrated experience, according an announcement by AlwaysIA.
AlwaysAI provides a platform for building, training, deploying and managing computer vision applications on IoT devices to developers and enterprises. One of them is now POS Upgrades, which specializes in facilitating client processes and user experiences by offering cutting-edge POS products and payment solutions.
AlwaysAI said it will work with POS Upgrades to initially offer their customers a streamlined, affordable system for self-checkout at airports, hospitals, schools and sports venues. In addition, the companies aim to improve overall customer checkout experiences.
"This partnership helps POSU bring cutting-edge technology to market faster" says POS Upgrades chief executive Michael Cassidy.
