Bleep UK PLC to Launch eebag, an Innovative Plastic bag Dispenser, at RBTE 2014

Bleep eebag is new to the UK, designed to control and monitor the dispensing of bags at retails checkouts

Bleep UK PLC will launch Bleep eebag, an innovative plastic bag dispenser developed to integrate into retail checkout counters, at the Retail Business Technology Expo, from the 11th March 2014.

eebag is new to the UK (with over 6,000 units in operation across the globe) and designed with the upcoming plastic bag levy in mind. It is a tried and tested tool for reducing packaging costs and environmental impact for stores, whilst improving the customer experience at the checkout.

The unit consists of a robustly encased cartridge of plastic bags and a built in processer. The eebag can analyse customer purchases to reduce bag over-consumption by adjusting feed-rates and volume according to the specified retailer strategy.  The bag dispenser is conveniently located for the customer at the checkout. Like tissue paper, the next plastic bag bursts out when the customer grabs the current bag, and partially opens, ready for use.

With eebag, bags can be released according to purchase volume, bag flow rate can be pre programmed and the EPOS system can be debited according to a pay-per-bag consumption policy. Additionally it prevents bags being dispensed once a clerk logs off and can operate as a bag vending machine at unmanned self service points.

 

Benefits include effective cost savings derived from a reduced bag usage of up to 40%*, a reduction in packaging logistics, time saved at the point of sale as bags are partially opened on release allowing for quick and efficient packaging and an enhanced customer experience.

 

John Wellman, Chairman of Bleep UK PLC said “This is an exciting product which is new to the UK and has been developed in line with the future plastic bag charges. It has been designed to assist retailers to reduce their plastic bag usage, reduce costs and also enhance their customer experience”. Bleep eebag will be officially unveiled to the industry at the Retail Business Technology Expo, on stand 112, at Earls Court on the 11th and 12th March, where hands on demonstrations will showcase the products features and benefits.
