Nah. I worked on the Sainsbury's "GlobalStore" till software. It was about 10 people, for about 6 months, which was then rolled out across many thousands of tills. So yes, there is SOME work involved behind the scenes as it were, but a tiny amount compared to the loss of checkout staff.

Most coding needs several job layers. One to create, one to check, one to upload.

This allows up to 3 jobs per till. Hipsofacto.

You clearly know nothing about software and software rollouts.

Or you're trolling.

Hard to tell.

But then groceries in general are more expensive in Australia, compared with the UK, no? Even taking into account higher wages and so forth.
