Usability is also enhanced by the myU-Scan Mobile Application which reduces transaction time and personalizes cross-channel customer service by allowing individual customization at any U-Scan station in any store. Available for Android and iOS devices, myU-Scan delivers a unique Quick Response (QR) Barcode to customers' mobile devices. Therefore personalized identification data and pre-selected shopping and payment preferences as well as lists of favorite items are easily to hand at the checkout and available for reuse or editing.

To help mass merchandisers, do-it-yourself (DIY) stores, drugstores, convenience stores and other retailers achieve their objectives, the U-Scan Genesis II solution comprises:

- Best-in-class cash handling tools: includes an easier-to-maintain coin and note dispenser that offers higher capacity, faster and more accurate validation, lower energy consumption and remote capabilities.

- LED brilliant blue light bars: help direct consumers with their transactions, are synchronized with the U-Scan user-interface test, and contain animations as well as audio guidance.

- Modular security technology: U-Scan Genesis carousel is available in various formats and platform versions. There are several height bag riser as well as expandability options for up to eight bags, making the modules secure and efficient to meet a broad range of requirements.
