The article reports that Dari Mart, a 43-store chain based in Junction City, Oregon has decided to upgrade its point-of-sale (POS) hardware and software and begin scanning. The company has incorporated Telequip's T-Flex coin dispensers, following a two-store beta test that showed clerks saved an average of four to five seconds per transaction. The goal was to eliminate mistakes when counting money in or giving change back and speeding up the transaction. The clerk rings in the item and gets the total. Then they enter in the amount the customer gives them and the change comes out of the dispenser so all they have to do is count the bills.
