Our story

The story of the visioncheckout begins, how else could it be, in the queue for the university’s cafeteria. This is where the idea was born to find a technical solution against the long queues at the checkout. So, we developed the visioncheckout: a system that uses AI-based food recognition to autonomously identify and charge for items.

We now count leading companies across Germany among our customers. They all love the frictionless automated checkout process with the visioncheckout – which does not only result in a beautiful customer experience but also in lower costs as well as higher sales for operators.

The award-winning visioncheckout delivers industry-leading performance on the measures that matter most: accuracy, speed and flexibility. We also accelerate time-to-value with our standardized and open API that allows for a quick integration with any POS system.

Our goal is to deploy visioncheckouts wherever people enjoy food around the world and become the norm for how people buy their lunch.
