Amazon may be scaling back its checkout-free technology, but Sam’s Club is stepping up its game with the help of AI. Instead of relying on store staff to check receipts, Sam’s Club customers can now walk out of the store without any hassle.

The technology, unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show, has been deployed in over 120 clubs across the US. According to Sam’s Club, this has significantly sped up the checkout process, with members leaving the store 23% faster. The company plans to expand the technology to all its stores by the end of the year.

So how does it work? The system uses computer vision and digital tech to capture images of customers’ carts and verify payment for the items. AI is used in the background to speed up the process and learn from thousands of transactions.

Gone are the days of waiting in line to have your receipt checked. Sam’s Club aims to keep customers moving and free up store staff for other tasks. They even took a subtle dig at Amazon, highlighting that their technology is succeeding where others have failed.

While Amazon faced criticism for relying on human workers to review transactions, Sam’s Club is proud to have less than 40 employees working on the deployment of the technology. From engineering to marketing, they’ve got it covered.

It’s clear that AI is revolutionizing the retail industry. With Sam’s Club leading the way, it won’t be long before other retailers follow suit. So say goodbye to long lines and hello to a seamless shopping experience.
