Japan’s MUJI Department Stores installs NCR’s new self-checkout concept


Duluth, Ga. -- In a pilot implementation, NCR will deploy its SelfServ 90 for Japan’s Muji department stores. It is the first installation of NCR self-checkout technology in a non-grocery environment in Japan.

Additional deployments are expected for Muji’s high-traffic locations inside terminal buildings and metro areas, as well as other stand-alone locations. The Muji store in Yurakucho, Japan is the site of the initial installation.

The NCR SelfServ 90 was designed to be highly versatile, with configurations for a pedestal mount, a wall-mount and a countertop stand. The solution is intended to attract shoppers who have just a few items and paying with a credit or debit card.

Historically, during peak times, Muji experienced queues with more than 20 people in line, many with just a few items and some leaving without making a purchase due to time constraints.

The solution has an EMV compliant card reader for credit and debit card purchases, and its contactless support handles e-currency that is gaining wide acceptance in Japan.
