NEW YORK — Man-Dell Food Stores here, which operates nine Key Food stores in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and Nassau County, has deployed new IBM scan-and-bag and point-of-sale technology in five locations, IBM, Armonk, N.Y., announced yesterday. Man-Dell replaced NCR ScanMaster systems with new IBM SurePOS 700 Series systems running the IBM 4690 operating system, and later added scan-and-bag self-checkout terminals from IBM. "IBM self-checkout offers customers a faster, more reliable and more flexible shopping experience," said Scott Schubert, MIS director of Man-Dell Food Stores, in a statement. "We estimate that 28% of our shoppers now use self-checkout on a daily basis, which proves that busy shoppers want a speedy 'in and out' experience, without dealing with long lines." In September, Man-Dell Food Stores, part of the 110-store Key Food Stores Co-Operative, plans to install additional self-service machines in four more locations.
