About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

The scanning device does all the counting as it scans and add up the prices of each item. When completed the amount you must pay at the till points will be accurately reflected. You needn't worry if you don't have sufficient cash to pay. You take items that you can afford. The scanning device allows you to see in advance how much you must pay at the till point.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

The cell phone is doing the exact same scanning as is done by your supermarket till points. The figures you must have ready will be the exact same that will be reflected at the till. The customer is shopping in convenience because the cell scanning device is a blessing in disguise.
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

At till points your items are scanned. If you don't have enough monies you have to put some items back on the shelves. This is 100% prevented if the customer can scan all items in advance before reaching the till points. The customer can now see as the cell phone scans and add up the cost of all items that they will or wont be able to afford what they want depending on the amount of cash they have in their pockets etc.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.

This concept is but an idea. I am certain that globally consumers will welcome a Cell Phone Scanning Device as it will make shopping so much easier and convenient.

Financial Sustainability Plan: What is this solution’s plan to ensure financial sustainability?

Once The Cell Phone Scanning Devise is up and running it will generate more than a few billion Dollars annually and even more if you add up globally, and be a financial benefit for generations to come. This devise will be used on a daily basis.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?


Founding Story

It is difficult to count the prices of each item so that you will have the exact monies ready at the till points. If you miscalculate you will be asked to take back some items. This is a huge humiliation and extremely embarrassing. This hurdle and personal experience has brought about the idea to invent A Cell Phone Scanning Device to combat this problem.
