Point of Sale Anywhere Application for COVID-19

Retailers are facing incredible challenges during this unprecedented time. Consumers are looking for shopping options that offer reduced contact, while retailers are revamping their store operations to provide a safe and efficient shopping experience that also:

  • Minimizes or eliminates the need for customers and employees to touch self-checkout touchscreens and payment terminals
  • Minimizes interactions between shoppers and self-checkout attendants
  • Supports physical distancing mandates and guidelines for that region

Consequently, more retailers are considering more ‘’touchless” in-store shopping and checkout technology. And some are looking into more radical, costly and time-consuming changes in their approach to serving customers, like grab-and-go technologies.

But we believe the quickest, least costly route for retailers moving to a more “touch less” in-store model is to use the self-checkout assets they already have – and transform them by implementing relatively minor changes in the user flow. It’s a fast and simple way to minimize the need to touch self-checkout screens and payment terminals.

Our goal is to help retailers accelerate the move to touch less self-checkouts where customers can scan their items, bag them and pay via their mobile phone—never having to touch the screen. Soon to come!
