Cantaloupe Inc. to showcase Cantaloupe Go smart store technology at NACS Show

Sept. 27, 2023
Cantaloupe’s new smart store technology using AI and computer vision will be showcased at its booth BC5603 and with partner Imbera Cooling in booth C6919 at this year’s NACS Show 2023 in Atlanta, October 3-6.

Cantaloupe Inc., a digital payments and software services company that provides end-to-end technology solutions for self-service commerce, announced it will exhibit its new smart store technology using AI and computer vision at this year’s NACS Show 2023 in Atlanta, October 3-6, at the Georgia World Congress Center.

The smart store solutions use technology to create a seamless product delivery and payment system for grab-and-go and tap-to-pay. Cantaloupe’s new technology will be shown in its NACS booth BC5603 in exhibit hall B and BC in the technology sector and with partner Imbera Cooling in booth C6919.

“We are really excited to showcase Cantaloupe’s Cooler Café kit, payment terminal and Smart Lock technology at the NACS Show,” Brent Parkinson, commercial director at Imbera Cooling, said in the announcement. “Cantaloupe’s technology is the next step in moving the self-service economy forward by providing safe, secure and convenient options for all store owners.”

Elyssa Steiner, CMO of Cantaloupe Inc., added: “Our technology elevates the c-store experience for businesses and consumers alike by enabling consumers to quickly and easily grab and go with their purchases. Our innovative solutions, such as the Cooler Café and the Smart Café allow consumers to simply make a payment, unlock the cooler, grab their item(s) and walk away! This advanced technology provides greater security for the store owner and a faster buying experience for the consumer.” 

At NACS Show 2023, Cantaloupe will be featuring the following products:

The Cooler Café uses a payment terminal to link up to three connected coolers for buying food and beverage products. Using Smart Lock technology, the Cooler Café remains locked until payment is processed, and consumers simply grab and go; store owners can also easily monitor cooler temperature in real time. The Cooler Café kit, payment terminal and Smart Lock technology will be integrated into Cantaloupe’s partner Imbera’s coolers at booth C6919.

The Smart Café, one of Cantaloupe’s newest products, is expected to be made commercially available in early 2024. The Smart Café uses computer vision and AI technology to charge the consumer for products they select out of the cooler. Consumers simply present their payment, grab the item, and walk away. Business owners also reap the benefits of having locked coolers for added security on high-ticket items such as razor blades, cosmetics, OTC medicines and more. Consumers love the convenience of paying for their purchases right away at the Smart Café cooler versus queuing to check-out. The Smart Café will be showcased in Cantaloupe’s booth BC5603.

The Go MiniX Self-Checkout Kiosk is a compact, cashless kiosk that provides consumers with a quick and easy way to self-pay. The kiosk includes a 15” touchscreen, built-in camera, barcode scanner, credit card reader and accessibility features for the visually impaired. The Go MiniX kiosk will be featured in Cantaloupe’s booth BC5603.

Cantaloupe Merchandising Coolers are offered both with and without Smart Lock technology. With a variety of cooler sizes ranging from single door to double door, Cantaloupe provides reliable, easy-to-set-up cooler solutions. These will also be exhibited in Cantaloupe’s booth BC5603.
