Walmart is to install 10,000 additional SelfServ checkouts from specialist NCR to more than 1,200 US stores next year.

The initiative is designed to improve the customer experience and offer shoppers more choice about how they check out. The retailer has been deploying NCR’s self-checkout solutions for more than 10 years.

“Our customers are shopping differently and we’re using innovative technologies like self-checkouts to meet their needs,” said Jeff McAllister, senior vice-president of innovation at Walmart US.
