KOTA KINABALU: Sabah has introduced its first unmanned convenience store.

The EZY Box store is a 24-hour self service store which operates on AI (artificial intelligence) system.

It guides the customer over six innovative steps to make purchasing a breeze.

The AI-based store is powered by Infinite Future System (IFS) Technology Sdn Bhd, a private entity founded by a group of dedicated investors and visionaries who are leading the way forward on the future of cashless society.

“IFS offers a diverse array of cutting-edge technologies, herald a new beginning for consumers and shop owners who are seeking alternative solutions of security, convenience, efficiency, hassle-free and unmanned environment,” said EZY Box’s director, Allen Tsang during the launch on Sunday.

To enter the store, users can use their phone and scan in via WeChat or using a member card. Once in, users can place their items on the scanners and make cashless transactions via smartphone or their member cards.

As for plans in the future, EZY Box co-founder cum chief operating officer, Brandon Ansibin said they are looking forward to develop more branches around the state capital and other districts.

“We are looking into opening our second branch maybe in December. We are considering opening outlets at areas like Universiti Malaysia Sabah and other public colleges,” he said.
