How to master auto-checkout

Studies show that consumers around the world view self-checkout (SCO) as a key component to making their purchases faster, easier and more convenient.

New variations of self-service solutions are redefining their future and will ensure that retailers can deliver an exceptional experience.

From both a hardware and software perspective, retailers will be spoiled for choice in selecting the right self-service solution to best serve the needs of their shoppers and, ultimately, their business.

From a hardware perspective, a key initiative has been large order automated scanning technology. Items are scanned, itemized and deposited in a pickup area where shoppers simply pack up and select their desired payment method on the screen.

They can also find alternative discounts that are made that day; while the next person in line can immediately start unloading their items.
