Get Ready For ‘No Scan’ Smart Checkout Technology Powered By AI That Greatly Accelerates Our Immersion Into The Mark Of The Beast System

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Customers in 7,000 Circle K and Couche-Tard stores will soon experience near-instantaneous smart checkout via AI computer vision technology.

I walked into my local Circle K gas station earlier today to buy a couple of bottles of water and a pack of peppermint Altoids, and when I got up to the counter to make my purchase, I was surprised to find that there was no one behind the counter. Nobody. But what I did see was an enormous bright red display compelling me to place my items into the Smart Checkout system, which I hesitantly did. What happened next? All three items were immediately totaled and rung up, with a screen directing me where to place the microchip in my debit card, and in the blink of an eye I was done. What on earth just happened? Oh, you know, and it’s happening so much faster than you think it is.

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:17 (KJB)

For those of us that were raised at the ocean and have experienced the power of the undertow in rough waters, we know exactly what’s happening right now. The Mark of the Beast System, which just celebrated it’s 30th birthday on April 30th, you call it the internet, is going through a major paradigm shift as the technology advances, and it’s pulling us deeper into it. The next time you go shopping anywhere, a WalMart, a grocery store, a Circle K or whatever the gas station convenience store is called where you live, look up over the glass doors of the refrigerated section and see the scanning and tracking devices. If you don’t see it yet, you will in the coming months. The Smart Checkout that I used today worked beautifully as advertised, all I had to do was set my items down and the AI did everything, the whole thing happened in under 5 seconds. Tick, tock, Christian…it’s almost flying time on Flight #777.

No Scan Smart Checkout Coming to 7,000-plus Circle K and Couche-Tard Stores

FROM RETAIL INFO SYSTEMS: Convenience retailer Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. said it will deploy more than 10,000 Mashgin Touchless Checkout Systems branded as “Smart Checkout,” to over 7,000 of its Circle K and Couche-Tard stores during the next three years. The AI-powered self-checkout system will improve customer checkout times as much as 400%, driving customer experience forward while allowing store staff to focus their time on helping customers.

The agreement with Mashgin launches the global deployment of the pioneering system, and represents one of the largest scale expansions of computer vision-powered checkout technology to date, the company said. It builds upon the successful deployment of Mashgin across nearly 500 Circle K locations in the U.S. and Sweden since 2020, as well as at Couche-Tard’s retail innovation lab store on the campus of McGill University in Montreal.

Referred to as ‘Smart Checkout’ in Circle K and Couche-Tard stores, the compact countertop device fits into the existing store layout. It uses computer vision to recognize items presented from virtually any angle and instantly ring them up in a single transaction. Customers place their items on the checkout system, which uses cameras to ring up everything in under a second. Shoppers don’t need to download an app or find and scan barcodes; they simply put items down, pay as they normally would, and are on their way in as little as 10 seconds – eight times faster than traditional self-checkout.

“We’re committed to investing in and scaling technology that sets a new standard for convenience with our customers and advances our mission to make our customers’ lives a little easier every day,” said Magnus Tägtström, vice president, global innovation at Couche-Tard. “The Smart Checkout system powered by Mashgin’s game-changing technology shortens lines, improves the customer experience and frees up our teams to focus on helping our customers. We look forward to introducing this new platform to stores across our network.” READ MORE

Is this a paid actor? Of course. Did we use clever cuts to speed up the checkout experience? Absolutely not. Watch to see how customers can check out in seconds at Circle K locations across the globe. Mashgin self-checkout kiosks are becoming common at Circle K locations across the country. And for good reason – Mashgin provides a fast, convenient, and user-friendly self-checkout experience. With Mashgin, customers can quickly and easily scan their items and complete their purchases without having to wait in line. This not only saves time but also helps to create a more efficient shopping experience.

Now The End Begins is your front line defense against the rising tide of darkness in the last Days before the Rapture of the Church

Please continue to pray for us, and for wisdom for me especially, as we continue taking steps to print the NTEB branded King James Bible for our free Bible and Bibles Behind Bars program. It is exciting and intimidating at the same time. If the Lord has prospered your financially, we ask you to donate to help us continue to send out free Bibles at this level, and even higher than we are at the moment. It takes a lot of prayer, and a lot of resources to do all this. Praise the Lord we are doing it, all of us together, labouring in the Lord’s harvest field. TO THE FIGHT!!!

When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. We have a Gospel Billboard program. We are now broadcasting Bible studies, Podcasts and a Sunday Service 5 times a week, thanks to your generous donations. All this is possible because YOU pray for us, YOU support us, and YOU give so we can continue growing.

But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. The Lord has given us an open door with a tremendous ‘course’ for us to fulfill that will create an excellent experience at the Judgement Seat of Christ. Please pray for our efforts, and if the Lord leads you to donate, be as generous as possible. The war is REAL, the battle HOT and the time is SHORTTO THE FIGHT!!!

“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;” Titus 2:13 (KJB)
