Wal-Mart testing new scanning system

(WTVM) - Wal-Mart is testing out a new checkout system using mobile devices.

"Scan and Go", as it's called, allows shoppers to scan items with their Smartphones, then check out at self-service kiosks.

The app is an attempt to reduce long checkout lines and labor costs.

It's being tested at a supercenter near Wal-Mart's headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas.
