Waitrose's 'Quick Check' app introduces a scan-as-you-shop service that simplifies the grocery store's shopping and checkout experience.

Typically, the process of going to the store to buy groceries involves browsing the aisles to collect desired items in a cart that must be unloaded at a checkout station for scanning and bagging.

Quick Check removes this last step entirely, making it possible for myWaitrose members to pack their shopping straight into their bags after scanning items with the app. To initiate this service, consumers enter the store and scan a 'Start Your Shop' QR code. To conclude one's shopping experience, a member may pay at any till by scanning their myWaitrose card. As Waitrose describes: "You’ll see a running total of your spend and when you’ve finished, just pay and go, with no need to unpack at the checkout."
