An Introduction to the Swift

The SWZ Swift Price Computing Retail Scale is one of our most popular weighing scales and it combines a high-quality, durable build with plenty of built-in features to help ensure weighing and pricing tasks remain accurate, fast and simple.

The Swift features an impressive 100 PLU’s so that customers can recall their most used items – a feature that is especially useful for stores that sell many different products and different prices. There is also a fully rechargeable battery for weighing in areas without direct access to power.

On the outside, a smooth, wipeable weighing pan and surface means that any spillages can easily be cleaned up to help ensure a hygienic weighing experience.

To use the Swift, simply add an item to the scale, and then, based on the weight of the item and your cost per kilo, cost per 100g or cost per pound, the scale will display the price for the item to both user (at the front of the scale) and customer. Users also have the option of connecting their Swift to a computer or printer via the RS-232 interface or optional USB interface.


Introducing Topup Truck

Award-winning company Topup Truck converted a Smiths Cabac electric milk float into a mobile zero waste shop, complete with 150 household essentials. This has been done with the aim of reducing household plastic waste and to create a positive experience for the North London community. It also aims to make waste free living more accessible by bringing the shop to the customer to make transporting goods home easier – an issue that can be difficult for many Londoners who do not own a car.

Topup Truck can be booked via the website to come to an area near you, or customers can keep track of where it’s already due to visit. Once you know to find it, users simply bring their own containers, jars or bottles and fill up on a wide range of essentials, including toothpaste, sweets, flour, rice and more.

Products are then accurately weighed out and priced using the SWZ Swift Price Computing Retail Scale, which Topup Truck described as “absolutely meeting our needs” when dealing with everyday use.
