Elevating a “simple” shopping cart security lock with the power of artificial intelligence

Tracxpoint transforms a simple trolley locking device into a powerful and intelligent system, with data connectivity, location services, personalization and more.

HAIFA, Israel, July 19, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – In a new “twist” on the traditional “Coin-Operated Trolley Lock”, used by supermarkets around the world, Tracxpoint has now developed the T-Loc(R), a smart locking device for standard trolleys, c i.e. more secure and 100% connected to supermarket data systems.

“With the deployment of our Daivi(R) Smart Cart and CHECXiN(R) Cart Management products, we have received many inquiries from budget conscious grocers about the possibility of ‘getting their feet wet’ with a less robust solution. Several retailers were already using coin-operated locks, so our engineers decided to “re-imagine” this type of security device to connect with our AI-based ecosystem.” said Gidon Moshkovitz, Chief Strategy Officer of Tracxpoint. “T-Loc(R) may seem like a simple chain lock mechanism, but the data and information it provides to store operators is exceptionally valuable and unparalleled.”

The T-Loc(R) can be unlocked by scanning a QR code printed on the main housing using the stores Rewards/Loyalty mobile app, or through the traditional use of inserting a coin currency for guest buyers. Once unlocked, the device begins to send data to the store’s servers; such as cart location and length of a shopper’s visit, which combine to generate daily store heatmaps, giving managers great insight into customer movement and store layout analytics.

With the ability for T-Loc(R) to broadcast its coordinates, locating abandoned carts outside the store or retrieving a “remote count” of carts in or near a returns kiosk is as easy as d turn on the TV. In addition to the built-in WAY(R) Indoor Positioning System, T-Loc(R) also broadcasts a unique signal to CHECXiN(R) endpoints in the area, not only to identify its proximity, but via daisy-chain connectivity, proximity other carts that may be too far away to connect directly to the CHECXiN(R) terminal; effectively reducing theft or loss.

Anti-theft and general scanning aren’t the only features of T-Loc(R). Like the Daivi(R) Smart Cart, shoppers using a store’s mobile app can earn rewards for safely returning and locking the cart, while receiving personalized, location-based coupons during of their buying journey. Coupons can be viewed in the store’s own mobile app and scanned at checkout. No personally identifiable data is ever collected or shared.

With less infrastructure required and easy installation, Tracxpoint’s T-Loc(R) smart lockout device provides food retailers with a solid foundation to start generating customer data and insights to fine-tune operations, while securing the fleet, at minimal cost.

Tracxpoint is ready to deploy the AI-Driven T-Loc(R) units in Q4 2022.
