At the National Retail Federation 2018 Retail's Big Show, Focal Systems highlighted its smart grocery cart solution, which helps brick-and-mortar stores better compete with the many next-gen concept stores that are now launching with cutting-edge technologies. As many established retailers lack the infrastructure to support major technology changes, one of the most significant points about Focal System's technology is that it does not require any in-store changes, or need consumers to use their own smartphones, or download an app.

Focal Systems' tablet can easily be attached to a grocery cart to assist with navigation, finding promotional offers and even completing transactions without the help of a store staff member.

The smart shopping system is powered by artificial intelligence and has been shown to increase a shopper's average basket size by 10%.
