PALO ALTO, Calif. (PRWEB) March 14, 2022
PALO ALTO, Calif. — March 14, 2022 — Mashgin, the world's fastest self-checkout system powered by AI and computer vision, announced today the company has been named to Fast Company’s prestigious annual list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2022. The 2022 list honors businesses that are making the biggest impact on their industries and culture as a whole—ultimately thriving in today’s ever-changing world. Mashgin is among the companies creating the future today with some of the most inspiring accomplishments of the 21st century. Named number three in the retail category of the 2022 Fast Company World’s Most Innovative Companies, Mashgin is transforming retail and has brought to market a real world application of computer vision that has already saved people 30 years of their lives waiting in line with the world’s fastest touchless self-checkout system.

“Mashgin provides a better way for companies looking to innovate and adjust to shifting consumer behavior, even more so in the wake of a global pandemic,” said Abhinai Srivastava, CEO and co-founder of Mashgin. “Computer scientists have long dreamt of the possibilities of what artificial intelligence (AI) could help humankind achieve. Today, Mashgin helps lead the way to realize that dream in the retail sector by giving people back precious time that would have been otherwise wasted in line.”
The Mashgin Touchless Checkout System identifies items from virtually any angle and instantly rings them up in a single transaction with a 99.9% accuracy rate, even for produce and plated food. It doesn’t need barcodes or RFIDs, perfectly consistent packaging, or particular orientations to work correctly. Consumers simply place their items down, pay, and go — in 10 seconds or less.
Mashgin widened its lead as the most vetted computer vision-powered checkout system over the course of the past 18 months, expanding to over 700 locations, and further optimized the time it takes to launch a new location — dropping from several days to under an hour.
Mashgin also dominates in complex environments like corporate cafeterias and sports stadiums where self-checkout implementation has been near impossible — until now.
The World’s Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company’s signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.
“The world’s most innovative companies play an essential role in addressing the most pressing issues facing society, whether they’re fighting climate change by spurring decarbonization efforts, ameliorating the strain on supply chains, or helping us reconnect with one another over shared passions,” said Fast Company Deputy Editor David Lidsky.
For the second consecutive year, Fast Company will host its Most Innovative Companies Summit on April 26–27 to coincide with the issue launch. The virtual, multi-day summit celebrates the Most Innovative Companies in business, and provides an early look at major business trends and an inside look at what it takes to innovate in 2022. Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies issue (March/April 2022) is available online here, as well as in-app form via iTunes, and on newsstands beginning March 15. The hashtag is #FCMostInnovative.
