Abstract

Long-awaited queues are the fundamental problem faced by check-out counters nowadays. However, the problem described can be sorted efficiently by providing customers with a self-checkout facility. Easy Mart is a mobile application that allows you to prevent these long queues by performing your transaction in a snap. Easy Mart allows its customers to scan the items using the camera. Then please set the item quantity and generate the total bill on their mobile. The Easy Mart app is designed to be used on mobile phones by its customers. However, in addition to that, it offers a POS system that can be tailored to the supermarket's back-end operations. The desktop application consists of an admin portal where various algorithms will be placed. These algorithms will perform analytics and sales patterns from historical data. Additionally, this application highlights which products will be in demand during which seasons and informs suppliers of what is required.
