Japan adopts Chinese cashier-free solutions to address labor shortage

NTT Data partners with Shanghai-based CloudPick, while SoftBank taps Indian tech

Although NTT Group generally shies away from Chinese-developed technology, Shanghai-based CloudPick was chosen on the basis of its track record and reasonable cost.

TOKYO/SHANGHAI -- Japanese system integrator NTT Data has linked up with a Chinese startup to provide cashier-free operations for convenience stores and other retailers.

CloudPick, the Shanghai-based partner, was established in 2017 and offers smartphone-based, cashier-free solutions to retailers, NTT Data said.
