How Zippin Works

How Zippin Works Illustration

Zippin’s proprietary approach combines vision cognition technology with machine learning to accurately account for shopper behavior and product whereabouts in-store. We do this by combining inputs from overhead cameras with product tracking—using smart shelf sensors—for the highest level of accuracy, even in a crowded store.

Zippin's Superior Technology

icons8-accuracy

Highly Accurate

Other solutions rely on one sensor, e.g. a camera. We fuse information from cameras AND weight-sensitive shelf sensors to offer two independent sources of truth and optimal accuracy for what products have been selected.

High Crowd Density

Zippin can handle the maximum number of customers fire department codes will permit in any store. Unlike other technology solutions that struggle to maintain accuracy and keep track of items when the store gets crowded.

Low Total Cost of Ownership

By using commodity hardware we keep costs low for retailers. Related support and maintenance costs are also low due to the fact that non-functioning components can be easily and readily replaced.

Ease of Installation

Installation is typically simple and without onerous requirements on store owners. Zippin works with existing store formats, shelving and coolers, and standard power supply and internet connections.

No Servers or Desktops Needed

By eliminating the need for servers or desktops, we have also removed the need for expensive system administration contracts, with no need to build out a separate server room or rack.

Items Sold by Weight

With weight sensors integral to our shelves, Zippin’s platform can handle fresh produce, prepared food sold by weight e.g. salads and cooked foods, and any other items priced by weight.

icons8-privacy

Total Privacy

Once a shopper selects the item they want from the shelf, they can put it in their bag or pocket. This provides privacy that may be desired by customers, e.g. when buying personal hygiene products, etc

icons8-search

Better Discovery

With Zippin, you'll always know where your products are located in the store, even if they have been put in the wrong location. You can now offer customers turn-by-turn directions to an item’s exact location.
